Hello hello! Welcome to my Patreon page!
My name is Sonja and I'm a freelance illustrator and cartographer! I drink a lot of tea, I love lemons (everything about them) and I have a cactus called Hunter that arrived on a plane from Texas.
I love to draw the world around me: my life, the lives of friends and strangers, the words we hear which intrigue us and the serendipity of every day. While never leaving my street I changed my country four times. Today, I live and work in Paris.
I’ve come to Patreon because whilst I’ve managed to sell some of my work, there are so many great projects I have yet to embark on. Your support will allow me to focus on creating more awesome books (I have two coming in 2018), to create amazing travel journals, maps of the spaces around us, and doodles of Parisian life, and maybe even recipes. You can help fund my art and experiments and provide the possibility to show more of my work to the world. By being a patron, you’ll be reminded of that birthday card you need to send, the present you ought to buy, to consider your world and the people around you differently, to solve your questions about illustration and creativity, techniques in art and the whole time I’ll act as your guide to Paris (and other cities!).
Your pledges will allow me to buy art supplies, pay my bills, explore more and tell you about it. Most importantly, they will give me headspace for new, bigger and better projects while I can also hang out with you!
How it works?
If you like my work, and you’d like to support me making cool art, then just choose how much you’d like to pledge each month (every dollar makes a difference!) and in doing so, you’ll have access to some cool perks such as getting a postcard you can send away each month, Q&A’s with me (and others!), additional secret drawings, discounts on buying my stuff online, or even where to find the best croissant or brownie with a mini tour of when you come to Paris (let's hang out!)! Support me here and you’ll find out more about the projects I’m currently working on!
Keep in mind, you can edit or cancel your pledge anytime you want!
