December Update
Hello, patrons (and potential patrons)! Christmas is quickly approaching, and I am busily finishing up several projects before the end of the year, one of which I finally completed a couple days ago: Beasts of the Desert - Bobcat. Prints are available in my Etsy shop, so feel free to use your SPECIAL December discount :)

Unfortunately, while I tried my best to capture the process of creating this latest piece through multiple filming sessions with my iPhone, the results were less than stellar, so I've decided not to release this video. HOWEVER! I just invested in a standing tripod that will make the video process 100% smoother, so I can promise you a time-lapse video of my next gallery piece, Beasts of the Desert - JAVALINA! I'm aiming to post this video by the end of the month, so stay tuned!

For potential patrons, this time-lapse video will ONLY be available to current patrons, who have also received a generous December discount for my Etsy shop in return for their early support of my Patreon campaign. If you would like access to this discount, as well as other rewards and Patreon-exclusive content, please consider making a monthly contribution! Every dollar counts, so whether you can spare $1 or $100, your contribution will be well appreciated.

In regards to the new Patreon fee system...

I deeply apologize that it will put the burden of fee processing on you, the patron, (2.9% plus $0.35 for each individual subscriber) starting December 18th. I do not support this system, as your monetary support is already a significant ask. I join many small creators in expressing their discontent over this change, and although I sincerely hope you will continue to support my art-making, I share your displeasure and understand that these additional fees are an unfair financial demand.
