I am initially opening my Patreon in hopes of purchasing a better drawing tablet or laptop to create my art. What kind I have yet to decide. Then, I am hoping to secure a more steady income living my full time dream of peddling my wares.
I graduated with a bachelor degree in advertising and graphic design in 2001 from The Columbus College of Art & Design. I took a huge chunk of time off after graduation and worked at a book store. In 2012 I quit my job, at said bookstore of 10 years and started my own business. It was the scariest thing I have done so far in my life. I've been a full time artist for four years now selling my creations at conventions around the US and also through my Etsy shop. Working conventions is extremely fun, but can be expensive. I also do freelance graphic design and other projects for a few clients, but it isn't as full time as I would like.
This is one of my many set ups you may see if you come out to a convention I'm at.
My creations are best described as pop culture designs and creations. I tend to create items I want to own for myself and then hope others do too. Everything from art prints to stickers, jewelry, fandom candles. I just can't stop! I am hoping to start with drawings and digital paintings on here and then maybe branch into offering more creations, like jewelry or shirt designs.
I cannot express the joy it brings me to make things that others want to have in their lives. The feeling is hard to explain, but it is why I continue to do it. My hope is this funding will help me create more than I do now and bring you amazing stuff you haven't seen from me yet. I've many plans I hope to develop as this grows. Any and all pledges are greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for stopping by my page and reading my story.
