I create, direct, and facilitate projects in a sandbox art medium called Line Rider, that are released in the form of videos! Here are some that have been made in recent months, thanks in part to financial help from my patrons:

This Will Destroy You: A minimalist track synced to an entire album of music (This Will Destroy You's S/T) that took over 250 hours to create. A sort of thesis on the untapped potential of unscened trackmaking in Line Rider.

Braggadocio: A collaboration I made with my good friend and patron Seth Chapman (OTDE). An aggressive commentary on how dependent on quirk the Line Rider community had become.

Broken: A track dedicated to those who have struggled with depression. It was prompted by a Minimalism Contest which challenged entrants to make a track with just 300 lines. The challenge sparked an idea to make a track synced to a particular song and the concept fell into place from there.

Blackheart: A massive collaborative project originally conceived by Sean Reynolds "Boo", a member of the Line Rider community who tragically passed away in 2015 at the age of 18. I directed the project for the majority of the process, drew the scenery at the end of the track, and handled the recording and editing.

I have been creating Line Rider tracks since 2007 - from the age of 16! - simply because I love creating art with the medium of Line Rider. Projects often take dozens or even hundreds of hours to create, and I am a young adult and starving artist with a need to support myself financially. The more income I can get from Patreon, the more time I can dedicate to Line Rider. Every pledge, even a $1 pledge, means an enormous amount to me, because it means I have another fan to motivate me - and the more fans I have, the more art I can make!

I typically release a monetized video about once every 2-4 months. This includes major solo projects as well as collaborations that I played a direct, major role in. I will occasionally also release unmonetized videos, such as smaller experimental projects, time-lapse videos, compilations, and commentaries. If you are worried about the lack of a solid schedule, feel free to set a monthly maximum donation amount!

A playlist of everything I've ever created (or helped create) in Line Rider can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTE5Lq14d4I...
(Note: The vast majority of them were not monetized - there are some really weird ones!)

Thank you so much! Some possibilities for perks:
1. I'll spend a couple of hours on a track you want me to, and livestream it if you want!
2. I'll collaborate with you on an artistic project that involves Line Rider (I'll refund you if I monetize it)
3. I'll hide something in a scenery track of something you want to see!


You can request up to one perk per monetized release. (You'll also get the early releases, previews, and project plans)

Goals
$86 of $100 per major release
Sustainability! At this point, this passion of mine is paying for its own expenses! (computer, software, internet, etc)
