Dave Van Etten is creating flights of the fantastically odd

What is Imaginetten?

It’s kind of a webcomic, kind of a portfolio, kind of a repository of thought built upon the therapy of drawing. I’ve owned a professional design and illustrative studio. For many years I was a teacher. Because of a progressive spinal injury, I am about 90% homebound. I now create to balance my sanity. I draw and paint a lot. I mean... crazy amounts. I post my finished works on Imaginetten.com. My Instagram feed (vanettda) covers my various works in progress. Patreon is where I give access to the wizard behind the curtain. 

Why I need your patronage:
Let’s face it. I’m going to draw and paint regardless. It’s not like if you don’t contribute to the effort I’m going to stop. Because I work 100% digital I can do it from bed, or propped up by pillows in a chair. Your patronage provides a means for me to feed my family and provide a roof over my head. I’m not going to win any walking contests, but I can still do this one thing that keeps me engaged everyday. Your patronage makes a significant difference.

How does this work:
I continue to do what I do. (The proof is on my Instagram feed. I post something almost daily. Sometimes a few times a day.) You commit to a small cup of coffee type payment and get access to warm fuzzy feelings.

Oh yeah... and I have rewards for Patreon only people.

Goals
4% complete
I would love to make my wife happy and say, "This webcomic isn't a drain on our resources." Buy reaching this goal, I can justify the effort and time without getting "that look." When I say I'm working on my webcomic, or the groan when the hosting and bandwidth bill comes due.
