About Painthog

Hi My name is Robert Joyner and I have been a full-time mixed media artist for over 12 years.

If you are interested in painting, or drawing loose and expressive expressively, then I honestly think there is no better place to learn online than with me, as I love teaching my ideas almost as much as I love creating art myself.

By sharing my knowledge and techniques I have found my students can bypass years worth of trial and error and reach a much higher level in a fraction of the time it would have taken them. saving a LOT of money on wasted supplies too. And have fun doing it!

Patreon gives people the opportunity to not only learn, but at the same time directly support the artist (by becoming a patron / supporter) - it really is a win, win situation.

So when you join my Patreon channel what do you get as a reward each month?

* On this level you get a brand new step-by-step tutorial video every month. These are usually 25-40 minutes long and sometimes even longer.

*PLUS you get an exclusive 50% discount on my companion website,, that hosts several premium online courses.

When we reach 250 Patrons I will upgrade all filming equipment. I have a saved wishlist that includes 2 Aputure lights, Blue Yeti broadcaster mic, cam link and power adapter so I can use my Sony a6000 DSLR as a second webcam (a second angle while streaming and filming) and a few other goodies. All in all this will cost around $1400 but the end result will be much better sound and video quality.
