Hi there friends! Mel Paradise here! I've been doing shows for a few years now and I think it's time that I set up a Patreon. This year I became a full-time artist. Alas, I'm still just barely getting by. Everyday I'm spending 10-12 hours crafting, making, marketing, reaching out to potential customers, organizing events, and so much more. It's a lot for one person to take on at once! Please help this local Portland artist thrive. Every donation goes right back into the business, allowing me to design and create more wonderful and fun things to share with the world.

Goals
$28 of $250 per month
I sell my art and crafts at conventions and expos, and I want to show you how you can make some of my most popular items. I've been taking requests, paying attention, and planning out a new geek craft tutorial channel on youtube. I currently have footage for 6 new art and craft tutorials, but can't afford the time to edit them between other gigs, shows, and projects. My channel will include other content too  including vids about conventions and nerd culture, gaming culture, portland art, street art, craft tutorials, gameplay, and more! Stay tuned to see what Mel Paradise will come up with next!
