Hello fellow robot lover!
I am an illustrator/engineer who creates kinetic works of art that are "living" versions of the characters I draw! I spend the majority of my time developing behavioral systems which give my robots distinctive personalities and ultimately set them apart from other utilitarian machines.

Creating my mechanical children is my passion and pretty much what I spend all of my time doing. Making progress on them requires buying parts, tools, and often new equipment, which ends up slowing down my progress a lot... because I can only budget so much to do so :(

With your support, I'll be able to explore new frontiers of weird! A supplement to my income would enable me to make larger purchases without hesitating. More progress would be made at a faster pace... thus resulting in more robot babies populating the world!

If you wish to follow my creative process on all things (build logs, updates on progress, summary of things made) please subscribe to my 
YouTube Channel : Gravity Road!

You believe in me! =D I know, I think world domination with robots is an important life goal to have as well. In return for your confidence, I will tell you about all the things I'm creating in a private feed for Patrons, where you will see my progress updates in the form of videos, rants, drawings, pictures... and anything else I create along the journey up my personal shit-mountain. I will try to include as much interesting meta material as possible so you can feel involved with the setting of my goals, struggles through problems, and my achievements!

You are giving me $2 a month to create robots?? YOU ROCK! You shall definitely be spared when the uprising occurs. In addition to having access to the Patron Feed mentioned above, I will send you occasional surprises via email. This may include horribly photoshopped compilations of robot concepts I dream up on a whim after an evening of drinking, bad drawings from the margins of my sketchbook, and sometimes .stl files of strange oddities I develop along the way that you might find fun or useful in your own projects. There are no limits here... if I think it will bring at least one person joy, it may end up in your inbox.

So, $5 is a lot to give someone per month to create intricate nonsense... and I recognize that. You identify with what I do. In return for your support and confidence in my abilities, you will have access to the Patron Feed mentioned above, and I will provide for you special insight into my research and development via a WORLD DOMINATION News Letter that will be emailed to you directly. This will include new software I may be developing with, my personal thoughts on it, how it was helpful in the development of whatever I'm currently working on, and links to any sites or projects I've found that helped me overcome technical hurdles. I also welcome you to begin a dialogue with me. If you need advice or have feedback, we should talk!

Holy crap. You must really want robots to overrun the earth with nonsense. I can't begin to thank you enough for this vote of confidence. For this amount of support, you will not only have access to the Patron Feed and receive the News Letter, I will personally hand make and mail to you some small creation as a token of thanks. It might be a miniature posable figurine of one of my robots, or a hand drawn illustration, or the latest spin of postcard art I'm handing out as propaganda, or some terrifying failed 3D print amalgamation that I found strangely pleasing. Whatever it is, it will be cool... and the longer you support me, the more you will receive. Consider it a "cool things care package" sent at random intervals from a mad scientist. <3 <3 <3
Goals
$154 of $300 per month
Exotic Development. Each month a portion of this funding will go towards something on my wishlist that I normally can't afford. This might include fancy raw materials, the production of a new circuit board and its components, or expensive new motors for one of my robots. <3
