Once upon a time..

"Once upon a time there was a girl and one day she picked up a pen and a pot of ink..."




A huge, smiley inky fingered hello from me! My name is Zoe Sadler and I am a freelance illustrator and children's book author living in the UK. I actually live on a small island at the very bottom of England. I spend most of my time in my garden studio, mostly wiping up spilled ink which does occasionally makes it onto the page and turn into something beautiful and hopefully magical!





If you love the sea, island life with a little bit of fairytale magic thrown in for good measure then you are in the right place. I love drawing fairytales, fantasy and anything magical and fantastical. You can find out more about me and my illustration work and books at www.zoesadler.com.


You can also sign up to my monthly newsletter here where you will find some more fun free stuff!

So what is Patreon?

Patreon is a way for you to join your favourite creators communities and support them on their creative journeys- in my case to beautify and entertain the world with my children's books and of course a good excuse for me to splash some ink around.

As a patron you can pledge any amount you like each month and in return I will reward you with items from the corresponding reward tier. You can change or cancel your pledge amount at anytime.

You can find out more about Patreon here.


Why am I here?

After illustrating professionally for just over a decade I have found it has become increasingly difficult to get my work published and make my own mark in a crowded industry. After working with agents and publishers over the last couple of years I found I was losing my own personal illustration style and my artistic identity. I was illustrating subjects that just didn't come naturally, that I wasn't enjoying or just being asked to change all the things that I used to love about my work.

This all lead to me to taking a step back and re-evaluating my work. I fell upon the realisation that I really wanted to create my own artistic projects and write and illustrate my own stories. So, I have ventured onto Patreon in the hope that you can help me carry on creating my independent work and putting my stories out into the world.


Most importantly, what's in it for you?

I really don't believe in you giving me something for nothing so in return for your pledges and support I will reward you with lots of exciting exclusive online content, colouring-in and activity sheets to download. A first look at new stories, ideas and artwork as well as physical artwork in the form of postcards, greetings cards, limited edition prints and original art for the higher tier rewards. I like to think of it as a subscription to my 'Ink Spiller' Membership Club where in return for your support you will receive really cool exclusive inky things and an inside look into my inky process.

Tier Examples


The more support I have from you all, the more exciting my rewards can become and I can offer you more and more exclusive and limited edition goodies. This will also allow me to start creating more content and videos just for you where I can give you an inside look into my illustration process with timelapse videos and perhaps even in the future some mini 'Ink Spiller' tutorials. The potential of it all is very exciting and I really want to create some magical and wonderful things for you!

Note on tiers & rewards

Please note my page is constantly evolving so for this reason tiers, just like magic, may appear or disappear or be adjusted. I will however let you know of any changes so you can adjust your pledges accordingly, if you feel the need.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and a huge inky thank you for all those who are willing to support me and help me on my creative journey.

P.S  I will create a proper intro video for you to enjoy as soon as I have cleaned the ink from my fingers.

Goals
$37 of $50 per month
My first milestone!

I am keeping my goals small and achievable to start with but I am a 'planner' and list maker so I am also looking ahead. So please do check out all my goals and plans.

It's so very hard to start a new page like this and have faith you have supporters and real fans out there. I really have no idea how successful my Patreon will be at this stage and it is all a little scary! Scary if it flops and even scarier if it actually takes off! Your support means the world to me!

So for now your initial support and encouragement lets me know I am in the right place and that you all appreciate what I am trying to achieve as an independent illustrator and author and that you want me to keep going.

A real confidence boost to an Inky Illustrator!
