My name is Shawn Coss. I'm an artist known for the mental illness series, inktober illness, as well as various series on phobias. I'm also a sketch nomad for the popular webcomic, Cyanide and Happiness. And this. Well this is my Patreon.

       
For the past 8 years, I've been creating artwork, nursing, running a clothing line, and trying to maintain some type of human interaction. It's been a blast but the main drive behind all of my outlets is to maintain a living for myself and my family through my art work. Since I was able to create tangible thoughts, I've always wanted to be a working artist. But with costs of materials and having to work multiple jobs, it's been a struggle to maintain a consistent schedule for my personal work.This is where you come in, my friends and fans. 

 

Why Patreon? With the ever changing landscapes of social media. It has become harder and harder to grow and keep a fan base up to date without having to fork over money to social media machines to access established fans. With Patreon , I can have a direct connection to my fans and those who are looking to learn from me without having to navigate the multiple social media apps we find ourselves attached to. I can share insight on my thought process, my inspiration, and the tools I use. It would be almost like a classroom like learning but without all of the boring stuff and grades. 

  

With your help:  I'm aiming to create larger bodies of work such as my Tarot Series , continue focusing on my mental illness artwork and experiment with new creative ideas that would be made available with Patreon support. 




Here's a small list of what I'm offering for being a patreon of the dark arts.
  • More behind the scenes look of my art process 
  • Video time lapses
  • Private Discord with monthly live chats 
  • Video tutorials
