About riles

welcome to patreon!

i'm riles, a visual poet fighting for softness in our sometimes hard world. 

this Patreon is for folks who want to support my work while getting some behind the scenes interaction, learn more about my art making process, help actively shape the new art i make and which initiatives i focus on, & get their mailbox filed with exclusive stickers, zines, and other art that isn't shared anywhere else.

the goal of all the art i make is to inspire reflection & connection with ourselves and each other. toward that end, i am also working to develop community spaces where we can share what makes us human and support each other on this path.

all the street art work i do is self funded, & stickers, paint, paper, postage -- it adds up! i also currently work a full time job alongside all the work it takes to make and share art for free both online and on the streets. by building up patron support, i will be able to spend more of my time making art and eventually reach the goal of being able to work in art & community building full time 🙏by supporting my art here or sharing my work on social media or with friends and family, you help make that dream a reality. 

read this post for a more in-depth walkthrough of why i have a patreon & how your support helps.

my current monthly project, the handmade art zine small things for soft hearts, is released exclusively to patreon supporters! sign up for the "daisy" tier or above by the last day of the month, and you'll get that month's copy! you are charged as soon as you sign up, & you can cancel your subscription at any time, or reduce to a lower tier, & you will still receive the zine for the month you joined. (& no hard feelings! promise! 🌸)

read more about this project (and zines in general) in this post.

thank you for being here, and if you have any questions or suggestions, don't hesitate to message me. i love meeting new folks and creating connections. (speaking of which, feel free to click here to come check out my discord community for the Soft Heart Society, a group for creative folks interested in cultivating care and community. it's open to anyone!)


how are the stickers and zines shipped?
the price of shipping is included in the tier price and everything is sent via USPS. Stickers are mailed in a painted envelope with a stamp. i'll always send out a post to let you know when i've sent out your packages as well.

will I know what the designs are before they are shipped?
some of it, yes! i will talk about the monthly zine theme in the Soft Hearts Society discord community, and you are invited to participate there! 

when do I need to sign up to get this month's deliveries?
you will be charged right when you activate your membership. if you sign up by the end of the month you'll get the delivery for that month unless it's sold out. if you sign up after a new month has started, you will receive only that month’s perks instead. (so if you sign up on october 29th, you will get the october delivery that ships on november 1st. but if you sign up on november 1, your first shipment will be december 1st.) 

what if my items are lost or damaged?
i'll support you, even if the USPS doesn't. if your item arrives damaged or gets lost I will try to replace it ASAP. as a last resort, i can offer you a refund for that month if we are completely sold out of that item or it is something i can't replace.
40 of 100 patrons
oh heck yes! when we hit 100 patrons, i will create a unique design to commemorate this moment & print a run just for y'all. each patron will get a signed, special edition print not available every again or anywhere else 💜 & i will start a regular sharing circle just for patrons. 🤝💜
