I make maps and cityscapes on a number of different surfaces including walls,furniture and paper that interconnect into a larger fictional universe I have created to mirror our own. I use these places to critique and challenge political ideas and social norms and I'm currently creating an atlas which will explain some of the ideas I've hidden within my creations.  
 Though I sell artwork, obtain mural contracts and take on temporary work it is often difficult to cover even the most basic of expenses.  
My hope through Patreon is to create a basic income for myself in order to focus on new and unusual works and allow me to also continue to volunteer my time toward free art workshops and collaborative mural projects with children as well as other community based projects I'm creating that a basic income would allow.
I will also be taking The BIG Patreon Creator Pledge, so that when I surpass $1300.00 per month in pledges I will reinvest that money toward other BIG creators.
Finally, I will be documenting through both a journal and artworks, my feelings and thoughts of having a basic income.
Thank you so much for reading and thank you for supporting my artwork. I hope you may be able to join me in my semi-fictional journey.
