About Rick Frausto

Hi, I'm Rick – a lifelong artist, and activist. I'm best known for my pen and ink illustrations centered around racial, social, and environmental justice. But what most folks don't know is that my work encompasses many mediums, including drawing, painting, sculpture, digital art, video and music-making, woodworking, and tricking out a DIY custom mico-campervan. On any given day, I have multiple projects rolling all at once. I'd love for you to get a sneak peek behind the scenes and be part of what I'm creating!

WHAT IS PATREON AND WHY SHOULD I JOIN?

Patreon is a members-only platform that allows you to support my work by making a recurring monthly contribution. In return, you gain private access to my world. It's the only place where I offer a highly personal view of my life, projects, and process. By joining, you'll have a direct hand in putting work into the world that addresses the critical issues of our time and uplifts and inspires people – genuine needs in this day and age when spreading awareness, maintaining hope, and feeling inspired are often challenging things to achieve.

And being here means being part of a movement for positive change. There's so much power in numbers. The bigger we build this community, the more impact we'll have, because together we're stronger.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

The funds generated by my Patreon community help me earn a sustainable income, allowing me to continue advocating for humankind and planet earth through art and activism on a full-time basis. Your support also assists me in launching projects that have been on hold for years due to a deficiency of financial resources. My highest priorities are:

  • Publishing a book based on my illustrations
  • Mounting an exhibit featuring work I've created over the last six years
  • Funding residencies that will allow me to create location-specific work
  • Printing images by hand for limited edition art prints and sustainable t-shirts
  • Upgrading my technology to keep pace with the everchanging technological landscape

The funds will also go a long way in helping pay the bills to maintain and update my website, purchase supplies and equipment, and invest in inventory. Every dollar counts, and I'm incredibly grateful for your support.
