Hey! My name is Sean Starwars. I've been making woodcuts for over 20 years. I've been teaching high school for the last 10 years, but I've just recently taken the plunge and am now a FULL TIME artist. It's been the most exhilarating experience of my life, and the most terrifying!!! I thought I would have more time than ever to spend with my wife and five kids, but instead I spend about 16 hours in the studio each day!  I'm always working! I love it , but I'm also afraid of coming up short  when it's time to pay the bills.I love having the total freedom to travel the country  and conduct workshops, and give lectures at colleges  and art schools.  I love having the time to devote  to searching for new opportunities  and  executing new projects. Every day brings new encouragement  that tells me I'm doing the right thing  by making art full time! I wish I'd been brave enough to go for it sooner. I could go on and on telling you about myself, but I'm just gonna say this : I love making woodcuts! I make more of them than just about anybody on the planet. Most of them are pretty good, and a few are Great! I take this very seriously , but I have a blast  while I'm doing it. Your support will mean  that I can keep the lights on in the studio, when times get tight, or that I have plenty of bright colorful ink and lots of paper. It will mean that I can bite off some more ambitious projects, Like making Woodcut Murals, and take some chances  to do the things that cost money but that might not bring in money. Money is tight!  Every choice I make effects not just me but my whole family. I wake up at three in the morning worried about what will happen if I don't sell a print that day. Money worries take me off my Mission. your support will make a major difference !It will allow me to hit my creative stride , to take my art to the next level,  and to not look back! I'm gonna do it one way or the other, but your support will allow me to get their faster . Any support you might choose to offer me , will be money well spent, and you will see the fruits of your investment in me pay off  in terms of more and better work.There will be lots of fun things for me to reward to support  with over the coming months. I look forward to giving back to my supporters every bit as much as I look forward to receiving their support!!!

Goals
$0 of $2,000 per month
I know it's gonna take a little while to hit this goal but when I finally do, I'll give the Patron who made the largest donation the actual woodblock I used to make  my editioned print.Since I make a lot of woodcuts, You'll have your choice of any block  that was created with support from Patreon. I have nearly every block I have made in the last 16 years since I left grad school.so giving one away if a pretty big deal to me! They look beautiful, and have a completely different spirit to them  than the prints  they produce.
