It's time for my monthly spending report, where I tell you where my Patreon earnings are being spent. This month they were 100% spent at IKEA.
I got a new desk, and it is about time. Between my job and my hobbies I spend most of my time at my desk. Painting, working, answering e-mails, updating social media, editing scans, applying to galleries, and playing video games. No matter where you are reading this from, chances are I am currently sitting at my desk. My desk is my tiny section of the universe and my old one was OLD. I've had it since at least 2003, but cannot remember where it came from (probably Craigslist?). It's not that I don't miss my old desk. It's that I really love my new one. Thank you for facilitating this purchase. My quality of life just went up.
I truly appreciate my patrons. This month a lot of people stopped donating, but a lot of other people started donating. If you had to stop being my patron, don't feel bad! I appreciate your support whether it is for one month or many years. If you've pledged now, in the past, or even in the future, thank you. You make my art possible and my life better.
