How do I become a patron 
Any button or link that says "become a patron". You then get to pick a tier based on what you are looking for. You might also see posts that are locked, click on them to unlock basically is same thing as click on become a patron.

How do I find this/that on Patreon.
This site is mostly organized by my exclusive posts in chronological order, and tags. Every time I post something new, lets say an instructional video or exercise, or just a drawing, you will receive an email about it, and click on the link in the email will bring you straight to the post. You can also just come to the site and view recent post and see my posts in chronological order. There is also a community section where you can post your artwork or thoughts and get feedback etc. (all my patrons can see this community page and tease you)

They are also constantly improving the site. If you have questions or having difficulties, just message me here. I usually respond pretty fast! unless I'm asleep, then the response might be sleep-walking gibberish.
