Thank you for pledging this month! I hope you enjoy this month's lesson!
I also wanted to let you know I got a message from Patreon this week that says they will be doing some restructuring on their payment system.
Essentially, since it's inception, Patreon has taken processing fees and their profits from the gross payment of patron's pledges before sending to creators. The fees and collection percentages were always fluctuating and the creator net total was ALWAYS different.
They are trying to create a stable payout, and in order to do that, they have lowered the individual fees and percentages, but spread them to all of us, Creator and Patron alike.
In the end this will result in an increase in your monthly pledge of a little over 2 percent, and a 35 cent surcharge (about 60 cents, I think. I'm shit at math). I think they are still ironing out the kinks in the system, and we will see some more changes in the coming months. I believe their long term goal is to keep creators on the site, and make sure that the content keeps flowing.
I am not sure how it will play out, but I can assure you, that I will continue constructing my lessons for those of you that wish to continue supporting my efforts and receiving premium content at it's lowest price.
I believe that staying a Tier 4 patron remains the most cost effective route for long term students that have been with me from the beginning. However, for those of you that are newer to our little family here, you might want to crunch the numbers on a Tier 1 support and picking up the archived episodes from Gumroad with your 25% discount code.
Either way, I am SUPREMELY grateful that you all are here and learning along with me in Izzy's Logic of Light & Color! Thank you for reading this long message, and do enjoy this month's rewards!
