Polymath is creating Art

What is Patreon? Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators to make a living from their passion and hard work - A crowdfunding site like Kickstarter except you get to support me continually as an artist who creates a multitude of projects, rather than just one big project.

Why support me? I need the freedom to work on my projects full-time. A few dollars a month from a community of people who get what I'm doing makes perfect sense to me - considering my universal, evolutionary and revolutionary themes.

Everything is One. Everything is Connected. Everything is Love.

I am bursting with an uncontrollable urge to make a positive contribution to the world, I just need some funding, some direction and some love...

You can help! Choose a section below to let me know which area you're interested in so I know what kind of rewards to supply you with and which areas to concentrate on. I'm doing this for you (as in humanity in general) so you may as well have some input right?

I'm really after lots of small donations - you will receive Patron-only updates. For larger donations I will operate a karmic rewards structure, the more you give, the more you get! I'm an ultra-generous person and love giving away paintings. Free paintings for first 10 Patrons!

Love and light,
Will Reardon (Polymath) xXx

Vote for: Painting



My paintings are the most immediate and instinctual form of my creative expression. They take on a life of their own through an organic process of gestural addition and subtraction separate from any kind of conscious plan. I like to counteract this by inserting pre-designed geometric graphics or typographic messages but in general the purely textural ones are the most successful. By choosing Paintings you are supporting the main stay of what I want to achieve as an artist and the rewards you get will reflect this choice - think birthday cards which are original artworks, discounts on paintings, VIP invites to exhibitions and general exhibition collateral. Thanks! You made a great choice.

Ah Sculpture! I kind of think in 3D, and I love making things out of wood. My sculptures are like an extension of my paintings in that they tend to exhibit the same Will Reardon patented organic layered and distressed texture. Often geometric, mathematical or typographically inspired, my sculptures are an expression of my philosophical thinkings brought into the real world. By supporting Sculpture you stand in line to receive actual real 3D stuff in the post (depending on how much you pledge). I'll make little things to give away, or if you're a major patron we can chat about a special commission. Either way exciting times are ahead for amazing sculptural works. Your money will help realise a few things I've had in mind for some time - chiefly getting stuff cast in bronze. I plan to make 3D designs on the computer, get them 3D printed and cast, which will result in a marketable product. I'm constantly thinking of ways to monetise my work but need a bit of cash to get things up and running! Thanks for supporting this endeavour. You will not be sorry. I am going to be mega famous, so imagine the rewards down the line for being one of my first Patrons! Yes.

Whats going on here Will?
Well, you need to check out my YouTube. (New 'Machines' video coming soon) The possibilities here are endless, resulting in fully fledged audio / visual products, VJ equipment and midi controllers the like of which the world has never seen. Pledge for this section and be amazed as I produce incredible machines out of bits and bobs with lights, dials, buttons, screens, sliders, huge levers and noise all fully interactive. You'll be the first to be invited to upcoming installations and events, we can start a dialogue and chat about how to move forward. These inventions need loads of investment as they bring together coding and processing, software and hardware as well as design and construction demands. This is a very exciting option to have chosen, thanks!

Vote for: Animation



In real-life I'm a motion graphic designer, so I know my way around After Effects and 3D animation software. My current situation is making it really difficult to freelance as I always have which is why I'm trying to think of ways to generate an income from what I love - making art. But I still love my animation, rather than corporate videos or even the more interesting broadcast design work; my art animations are like psychedelic geometric journeys into the coolest bits of your mind. These projects progress naturally into Audio-Visual artworks and inhabit real world spaces within my Machines as interactive pieces, as well as being seen on screen. Pledge for Animation and you might get a DVD in the post which will make your telly explode. Invites to screening etc. At the very least you can have links to download a bunch of high res awesome stuff. Thanks guys, you the best.

Want to see me embarrass myself on YouTube on a regular basis? Or make proper instructive films about whatever it is I might be thinking about or doing? Then this section is for you! I'm finding my voice in front of the camera, check out my YouTube channel. I want to more, vlog everyday, make really good films, create a decent following and start a dialogue with the outside world inside the internet. I have so little time as none of this stuff is making any money as yet that my videos are few and far between but with your help I could be the next Zoella... right? Thanks for supporting my videos! Don't forget to like, comment and subscribe! xx

What? There's more? Will, how do you expect to, like, do all this stuff? No wonder you ain't making shit - you've spread yourself too thin man. Nah man, its all good. Prints and small cards are a great way of getting my work out there and generate a bit of income. In fact there's way more to it than that. I've got an important message to get out there right? Often the best way to express these things is in black and white. And bold geometric forms and compositions translate well through the medium of print. I've only done screen prints so far but I want to get some digital prints done of stills from my animation work. Also some works I have in the pipeline are paintings with screen-prints on them - so using printing techniques to generate a single outcome. There's more: I want to get prints done of high res close up photos of my paintings - the organic textures work really well close up and these prints create really interesting random (and therefore pleasing to me) compositions. Thanks so much for supporting my prints! Guess what you get as your reward??

Oh god there's even more more... I told you I have a problem. My brain keeps on coming up with ideas unto the point of explosion / collapse. I try to remedy this by writing the ideas down. One day I get my act together and collate it all into a publishable tome. Probably under some sort of impractical heading like "Everything", "The Philosophy of Technology (and the Technology of Philosophy)", or "Quantum Thinking". I properly wrote out a nice proof for God's existence the other day... I did warn you lunacy abounds! You supported it, your bad. Love you.
Goals
$1 of $500 per month
I'll create a series of prints revealing the interesting organic textures within my paintings.
