WHO AM I?

SKY - by trade a GRAPHIC DESIGNER, and always obsessively creative, but only over the last year fully focusing on MAKING more consistent artwork ... mostly through INSTAGRAM.


WHAT AM I DOING? 
Turning my highly detailed patterns / illustrations into digital images + small prints (4"x4")


WHAT YOUR PATRONAGE MEANS FOR ME?
Eternal gratitude. No, really. The thought that anyone I don’t have an intensely personal connection with would be willing to support me in my artistic endeavors, blows my mind.

Initially, your support will allow me to :
  • make an actual intro video with my face in it ☺
  • purchase better tools / equipment (like a printer!)
  • take online classes through places like Skillshare
  • maybe move to a monthly Patreon model as I produce more work


WHY PATREON?
My friend, BOOKS BETTER THAN FOOD, recommended I give this a try. I make my living through contract work and odd jobs, but Patreon gives me the chance to survive off creative work that is meaningful to me.

Paintings, films, illustrations, books, and all kinds of artwork has massively changed my psyche and outlook on life over the years. Many times, artwork I loved was the only thing that brought a sense of excitement and release for me. My hope is to be able to produce even just one piece, that has that same effect for someone else out there. Personal expression is important to me, but the possibility that it could serve someone else is what excites me

The drawings have been a means of channeling and working with my psychological and philosophical selves. As I pursued the drawings further, I came to realize that how much I wanted to build a life orientated around creation. My hope is to eventually gain enough support / desire in order to expand what I create, and give as much value as possible to others.


THE MYSTERIOUS FUTURE
I already plan to branch out into animation, video, music, and other creative applications that will probably become separate Patreon accounts. If at any point Patreon support can provide the majority of my living expenses, than I can move full-speed into giving YOU more value here :
  • More of what you want (patron polls / surveys)
  • Providing critique, mentorship, feedback, support ...
  • Potentially creating my own community art studio
  • Potentially applying my style to animation
  • Direct extra $$$ to charitable / social action groups
  • w̶o̶r̶l̶d̶̶d̶o̶m̶i̶n̶a̶t̶i̶o̶n̶

*I'm figuring this out as I go along, so goals / rewards and what I can offer will most likely organically shift as I experiment*
