Weekly Update - Giveaway announcements, slight change in tiers, limited edition prints
Hello and happy Thursday everyone! I hope you all have been having a great week. The first week of this month was a little bumpy for me and I wasn't able to get around to post, so I will be combining several announcements into this post.

First of all, I would like to announce the ArtSnacks giveway for my $5+ patrons.  I'm actually giving away two items this month - a Denik mini sketchbook and a General's layout pencil (first picture listed below; sorry, I tried figuring out how arrange the pictures around the text but couldn't -.-' ) If you pledge $5+ dollars to me you will be entered to win these items for free! To see the review for these items, follow this link: https://youtu.be/cRolhGCh2so

I'm thinking about maybe having you guys vote which item you want given away instead of me choosing the item. What do you guys think about that?

The second picture features the original painting I am giving away this month to one lucky $10+ patron winner.  The piece is called Madremonte and is 5x7 watercolor piece on paper.

I made a slight change to my $20 and $30 tiers - I actually switched them, so instead of my $30+ patrons receiving a limited edition print, my $20+ patrons will be receiving them; this month's limited edition print is Mew (3rd picture below). The size is 5x7.

This last promo I have is completely free and not limited to any tier; I received my ArtSnacks Travel collection this past week. In it was a pack of Kuretake watercolor postcards, Faber Castle colored pencils, Koi watercolors, and a Pentel brush pen - among a few other things. I want to use the supplies listed above to paint something on one of the postcards and send it to one of you. All that you have to do is tell me what you think I should draw, and if I really like your idea I will draw that and send it to you. The last picture shows the supplies, but I will go ahead and list them to you along with their colors.

Colors I will be using for the postcard giveaway are:
Koi Watercolors - Chinese white, lemon yellow, permanent yellow deep, vermilion hue, crimson lake, Prussian blue, cobalt blue hue, viridian hue, permanent green pale, yellow ochre, light red, ivory black.
Pentel aquash pen - light black
Faber-Castel Art Grip colored Pencils - color names were not listed for these guys :( if you have any questions about any of the colors just comment or message me)

All of these promos are good till the end of the month, so you have that much time to pledge to be entered in any of these raffles. Since I'm pretty new to the Patreon scene, I would be happy if you guys could make any suggestions on how I can make my giveaways and tiers better for you guys. I want you guys to enjoy your gifts as much as I enjoy making (or reviewing) them!

Thank you for your support and have a good week!
