At 62, Steve has 2 dreams in life. Create more Nexus and share his knowledge with the world. Anyone who's ever edited a video knows how many hours it takes to put it all together. Patreon allows Steve to continue to put out professional videos, sharing his art knowledge and drawing demos with the world. Once we reach 250 patreons we can get on a schedule, hopefully monthly. In the meantime we'll offer other amazing rewards to show our appreciation.

What's in it for you?

  • Are you an artist that would love to learn from Steve's vast knowledge of art? He no longer does workshops or takes on new students, but would love to teach through videos.
  • Are you a fan of animation and are interested in seeing behind the scenes out takes and drawings? Would you love a chance to purchase an original animation sketch for under $100 before they are available to the public?
  • Pick Steve's brain with questions he will answer either via post or video.
  • Have your name listed as a supporter on his next drawing demo video
  • Special deals throughout the year on commissions and some moths we'll even give you your entire pledge back as a gift card in our store, free print, or other exclusive item.
  • Advance access to finished videos and opportunity for exclusive live streaming throughout the year.
  • Order online; pick up at the show -- at convention prices!  Plus guaranteed to get on the list at a show; even if he has to take it home and mail it.

WHY PATREON?

Anyone who's ever edited a video knows how many hours it takes to put it all together.  Patreon allows Steve to continue to put out professional videos, sharing his art knowledge and drawing demos with the world.  Once we reach 250 patreons we can get on a schedule, hopefully monthly.  In the meantime we'll offer other amazing rewards to show our appreciation.

WHY THIS WILL WORK

The Patreon campaign focuses on value through digital rewards from not only the Newspaper strip, but on Steve Rude as an artist sharing tips on drawing and struggles working with different mediums.We have an intern turned office helper that will help keep digital content rolling out and assemble monthly Q&A and commission suggestions while mama Gino carts kiddos and dogs around when she’s not destressing at the gym.
