Hi, I’m Anna, known online as bean baguette, and I’m a freelance illustrator and creative streamer on Twitch. 

Last year I launched Patreon and a Twitch stream as a structured, creative outlet--I was transitioning to life back in the States after teaching English in Japan, feeling very lost about my future, but having this overwhelming feeling that I wanted to do art. Since then I’ve been able to participate in charities and run fun events for the tiny (but mighty) Bean Team community. I’ve been able to make new friends and connect with other artists (and patrons of the arts!) online and in doing so learn a lot about myself. Most of all Patreon has allowed me to adhere to a schedule and hold me accountable for creating content, which has allowed me to build a portfolio, open commissions, and create, create, create!

Patreon?

I do not make a living off my art and most of my content, including streams, are available for free to the public. Your pledge allows me to buy new art supplies, devote more time on projects, and enroll in art classes--basically, you're like, a real patron, supporting everything I am doing to grow as an artist. In exchange, you can get cool rewards--wallpapers, mini sketch commissions, coloring books, and behind-the-scene blog posts going over my process. These are all things you can look at and use, but even more significant, the things I'm creating for Patreon are helping me build my portfolio. Your pledge means a whole lot!

Many of my current patrons have stuck around since the beginning, and I am so, so grateful for all the continued support I've gotten! Just a few years ago I had given up on art completely, but I know now it's what I'm really passionate about, and patrons like you have made it possible for me to give it my all!

Future Goals

-print on-demand repeating patterns
-coloring books
-re-opening of etsy store
-conventions and learning about merch design
-regular public blog on my site
