My name is Tom Taggart. I make things.

Back when I was a kid, Kellogg's had this contest every year where you send in drawings of your favorite Kellogg's character eating breakfast and selected entries would win prizes. I drew Toucan Sam and Tony the Tiger eating in a row boat surrounded by sharks and I won a 10 speed bike. I guess you can say that was the official beginning of my glorious art career. Since then, I have worked as an illustrator, doing 3-D covers for Marvel, DC Comics, Dark Horse, Topps and even LucasFilm Arts. My work has graced the covers of such titles as Batman, Swamp Thing, Doom Patrol and Animal Man just to name a few. I've worked in the toy industry, fabricating prototypes for such companies as McFarlane Toys. I've built mini-golf courses, worked on movie sets, painted murals, and now ... well, now I try as much as I can to just do my own thing, whatever that thing is at the moment. I live off my own work, much of which you can find in my ETSY shop. https://www.etsy.com/shop/tomtaggart

As of 2019, I have moved into a new, spacious studio in North Carolina and I am hoping to use this space to its' fullest potential. I'd like to get back into doing LARGE scale sculptures and perhaps even some movie making, at the very least, some full scale set construction. And as patrons, not only will you be helping make all that happen, but you'll have a front row seat to how it all happens. You'll get step-by-step tutorials, pictures and in-depth descriptions of my entire process, from concept to creation. 

I am hoping that with this PATREON page that I can have more time to work on pieces of art that matter to me, that come from my heart rather than just always chasing that buck, trying to pay bills. I'd like to get back into illustration, but for my own books. I have a couple in the works, and as patrons, you will be the first to know all about them.

I am still very new to all this and figuring things out, but as I go along, I hope to start adding videos and other special things that I feel you may all enjoy. I'd like to get to the point of support where I can give ALL of you at least something in the way of art as a reward. 

So, hopefully, if you are still reading this, you are intrigued enough to at least pitch in a buck a month. I mean, everyone can afford a buck, right? Hopefully this venture will open doors to new and exciting opportunities and be a lot of fun for all of us. Thank you in advance for all your support, both financially and spiritually. I honestly could not do any of this without my fans. You are the ones who make all this crazy stuff possible. 

THANKS !!!!

Goals
$373 of $600 per month
If I can reach this goal, then I will be in a position to get some new equipment, such as cameras and such and should be able to start posting tutorial videos, or even video tours of the studio and peeks at what is going on.
