Passion

My passion has always been in the visual arts of drawing and painting. Specifically people, animals, nature, expressive characters, and telling stories through illustrations and comics. I grew up knowing I wanted - needed - to be an artist. I've been freelancing since 2008, working on both creating my original artwork and also commission projects for my clients. Patreon is giving me a chance to really share what I love to see in art (and life) - beautiful line, expressive characters, positive energy and influence, and the strength to be a better, more truthful you.

Purpose
The purpose of my Patreon is twofold. My coloring pages (and books) and personal artwork - which features cute kids art and fantasy art for teens to adults. Both I endeavor to create positive, uplifting imagery and typography to brighten a person's day.

For those who love coloring, the first three Pledge tiers of this Patreon are a digital coloring page subscription for pages I illustrate. My favorite genre is fantasy and mythology, with a belief in being your true self, strong characters, magical elements, and the beauty in the balance of life (ying/yang, light/dark, etc). My pages reflect that. I also love graceful, well thought out line work, and I strive to achieve that in my illustrations for coloring.

The second item is my personal artwork - which in the spirit of ying/yang - I create both cute children's artwork, and also fantasy artwork better geared towards teens and adults. I work both digitally and traditionally when creating pieces, so you'll see a variety of approaches here. The children's artwork will range in subjects - sports, animals, unicorns, etc - all adorable for kids. And my fantasy artwork features dragons, fairies, goddesses, mermaids, and much more. Here I will share with you my ideas, work in progresses, finished pieces, and new product ideas.

Thank You

If you enjoy my artwork, thank you for following me for as long as you have. I have many years ahead of me, and much more to share of my art. If you are comfortable with chipping in any amount for any duration, please know it is greatly appreciated and helps me continue to create more artwork to share with you.

F.A.Q.

How does the coloring page subscription work?
The coloring pages are digital - PDF files. Patrons receive the file and can print them out as many times as they want for personal use. There are 2 Pledge tiers (subscriptions) depending on how many pages you would like a month. For the $1 pledge you receive 1 coloring page and $3 pledge are 3 coloring pages.

I will release the month's coloring page(s) on the 5th of the month in the Posts section.

My name will be added to the "Thank You" page of your coloring book?

Yes, my goal is to get 1 to 2 new coloring books out each year. When I start a new book, I will pick out some themes to have you guys choose one, and then work on that selected theme to create a new book. And any Patrons pledging during the months I am working on that specific book will have their names added to the "Thank You" page of the published coloring book.

Current Book in progress: Mermaids

What are the usage rules for the coloring pages?
As part of the coloring page subscription, you are granted permission to print out these images for your own personal coloring use only. Do not share the file online, or sell the PDF file or printed copies for profit, or any other commercial use.

How does the monthly point system work?
Every month you accrue points based on your Pledge Tier. Points never expire, and you can trade them in for items such as coloring pages, postcards, ACEOs, prints, and more!


What is Sketch Jam?
Once a month, for 48 hours, I will take requests from pledging Patrons on what to draw. Basically a "you request, I sketch" session!

What are the Patreon Achievement Awards?
Every six consecutive months a person is a Patron, they will receive an Achievement Award item. The award items are as follows:
  • Patrons at the $1 and $3 tier - An exclusive Patron Achievement Award PDF coloring page
  • Patrons at the $5 and $10 tier - An exclusive Patron Achievement Award holographic trading card and PDF coloring page
  • Patrons at the $20 tier - An exclusive Patron Achievement 8x10 signed art print, holographic trading card, and PDF coloring page

These Achievement Awards are a way for me to say "thank you" for your continual support. The only way to get any of these items is by being my Patron for the appropriate length of time at the appropriate tier.

I did the Pledge $5 (or higher tier) and get the Patreon Exclusive Monthly Trading Card and Coloring Card! What are those? And what is this Bonus original artwork thingy about??
I LOVE trading cards! As a child I collected all sorts of them - Disney movies, Saturday morning cartoons, X-Men, etc. As an adult, I thought it would be fun to start my own trading card series with my artwork. Every month Patrons at this level receive 2 trading cards. Both are exclusive to Patreon, and are only available for that month. One card is a regular trading card featuring my artwork on the front, and information about the piece on the back. The other card is a coloring card. Patrons get to color them in, and on the back as a little bit of info about the piece, and a place for the colorist to sign.

About that Bonus! I also will include one piece of original artwork in one of the packages being mailed out. A surprise will be waiting for a Patron who receives it. It could be a watercolor ACEO or small painting, pencil sketch...you never know. ;)

I also do reserve the right to include other fun things in the packages I mail out. Throughout the year I usually order new bookmark and postcard designs - you can be sure my Patron's will see some of these new items in their packages before everyone else sees them in my Etsy and Amazon shops. :)

I did the Pledge $20 (or higher tier) and get a drawing once a year!
When do I get my custom drawing?

I will contact you the 1st month you have pledged and we will discuss the details of your drawing, then I will email a high resolution file to you once I have finished it. This could take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depends on work load and schedule. But I will always keep in contact with you to let you know where I am with your drawing.

You will need to be a pledging Patron for 12 months to qualify for your next sketch/drawing.
