COMMISSION ME!


Hi!

I’m Sunny. I'm an artist, a writer and muse with bipolar disorder I, generalized anxiety disorder and agoraphobia. In 2011 I almost died from pancreatitis, which instead left me with a shitty pancreas that causes digestive issues, best addressed by medical marijuana, and chronic pancreatitis, which means that sometimes food or medication or alcohol will trigger the worst pain a human being is capable of being in. (For realsies, you can even ask your doctor.) I also have stage IV endometriosis.



I was a camgirl for 15 years, starting in 2000, when the internet was a much smaller place, and ending in 2015 with the closure of the site I'd started out on and stayed with my whole camgirl career, Camwhores.com. I've been blogging since 1998, before the term "blog" even existed. I've decided that once a camgirl, always a camgirl, but now I mostly stick to social media, although I have been known to stream on Twitch.tv.



During my time as a camgirl, I had a patron who kept me in art supplies, enough where I felt free enough to experiment with different styles and techniques. I finally settled on "my girls", which I'm most known for, in 2008, after taking a class on the internet on how to draw a face that didn't have googly eyes, for which I'm grateful, because until then, I didn’t know how to express my ideas in an artistically aesthetic way, beyond being a camgirl and taking photos. Now, my girls are just how I draw people.

Right now I'm trying to build a brand, it's called SunnyGrrrl. It's feminist, not always nice, and my girls are the heroes. My work consists of mixed media paintings and colouring pages right now, with a few Art Resin pieces mixed in, when I can afford to play with that medium. Some of my work is pretty. I like making pretty things, especially if I think it might be hung in a child's room. Some of my work is a little dark. I like to document things, so I consider the documentation of all of my projects almost part of the art itself since it's all uploaded to social media, and specifically for people to consume and enjoy.



People sometimes say to me, "I love you! I love your pics on Instagram/Twitter/artwork, how can I support you? How do I get colouring pages?" and I point them to this page, on Patreon. Here, you get stuff the general public doesn't, like colouring pages, patron-only behind-the-scenes posts and Early Access to public posts, so it's not like you're just giving me money, although you're completely free to do so.

When I was a camgirl blogger, I only gave people my Amazon wishlist link when people asked how they could compensate me for my content, because back then that's really all there was, so while I appreciate past tokens of appreciation, and surely welcome more if that's your thing, Patreon helps to keep me in art supplies and/or pays for a meal. Eventually it may help me fulfill artistic goals I can only dream of right now, like one day having an art show at a real art gallery in Toronto, maybe even with a menu of my choosing, and free wine and beer.



Almost every creative thing I do is with my patrons in mind, whether it's creating Polaroids or colouring pages, or documenting the creation of a mixed media painting, my #1 thought is almost always, "what will my patrons think of this?" or I create things for specific patrons to enjoy because I know what they like. I write and document because I get excited and feel compelled to in the moment. I create art because that is the energy I feel in my bones. It’s pink and it radiates from my glitter-infused marrow.

My goal is not to give up my "lovely money job" as a customer support representative for a porn site, because hello, that's an awesome job, but because it's only part-time and medical marijuana isn't covered by insurance, my paycheque doesn't allow much wiggle room for creative endeavors. I can usually make shit work, but I'm really tired of struggling.



My goal is to build a tribe of like-minded people who appreciate me and my work, while making enough money to justify the celebration of a new creation. That's pretty much it. Anything else is gravy, baby.

So, wanna be in my gang? ;o)

PS. If you just wanna buy original art, head on over to Sunnyland Studio! If you're looking for giclee prints, Society6 is the place to be! If branded merch is more your style, head on over to Zazzle!

Rewards
Colouring Pages!
$1 or more per month 9 patrons

  • Patron-only posts. For every public post I make, I probably make about the same, or more, patron-only posts. These posts tend to be more personal and emotional, but they could also be about my trade secrets when I'm making art, or they could be instructional, or they could be about how to make eggs in the toaster oven. Patron-only posts are for when I don't necessarily wanna write "out loud".
  • Behind-the-scenes, work in progress pictures and updates. Some projects I just don't talk about publicly until the details are final or the idea is solid, so if you want the inside scoop, this is for you!
  • EARLY ACCESS to public posts! Be the first to know!
  • COLOURING PAGES as they're released! This is the only way to get any colouring pages created by me! My colouring pages are downloadable PDFs for you to print at home on the paper you want, to colour as many ways as you want into infinity. I do not create on deadlines so the colouring pages are released as I'm inspired to make them. This can be once a month, this could be twice a month, this could be every 2 months, but I like making them so there will be colouring pages!
  • Instant access to PAST MONTHS' COLOURING PAGES! I started making colouring pages in June 2015 at a rate of 1 or 2 per month! You do the math!
  • YOU GET TO BE IN MY GANG! ;o)

One of its features is called your "story", which is like 24 hours worth of "snaps" all in a row. Most people watch these at the end of their days or while they're taking a break from work. You can replay a snap ONCE! It's possible to screenshot a snap, but I get an alert when you do and it is frowned upon! To get an idea of what snaps are like, check out these video compilations I made last year12
