What I do...
I paint live at events around Oxford City and whatever town, village or field (festivals!) I happen to be in, you will see me sketching everything as it happens with paint and ink furiously being applied. I sometimes get hired to paint events yet I also I love to paint live at interesting places documenting the moment in my own personal way and recording things about the event that perhaps cameras and devices don't always get ( I can edit in the moment and bend space time at will with my paintbrush!). It does help being in Oxford city where there are some fabulous cultural things happening all the time, I am an artist though so I also love to venture out to forgotten places in our world and celebrate the overlooked with my painting.
What I will share...
I will be sharing all the artwork I produce out in the world live in the moment and giving supporters a peek into my process with videos/ google hangouts/ downloadable pdf ebooks and uploading posts. You will also get Patreon supporter only videos about my art story and how not knowing my artistic father has been a real interesting and motivating factor in my art life. Plus interviews with some of the key figures in forming my artistic identity.

Access to my patron only news feed. There will be posts of art in the making and completed pieces. You will also be seeing some documentaries about my art story and the inspirational people whom have nurtured me on my art path. Please contribute to my art making and practice if you want to or just enjoy the creations as they go up. Your input is valuable and I want this to be a interactive experience. Cheers..Merlin
Goals
$1 of $1,000 per Live event paintings, studio paintings, short films
With a tablet and projector I will be able to film and project my art live at events and in public spaces. The benefit of having the tablet is that I will also be able to manipulate my traditional paintings with digital processes adding animations and sounds to the experience to up the breathtaking level another notch! I have done a similar thing at concerts before and the feedback I received was really enthusiastic and a field that I feel I could be on the cutting edge of. I am pulling an EXCITED FACE ::-0  Wooo!
