Procedural art is fun

This helps me make stuff with code! You'll get updated whenever I post something new, and when I make a plotter postcard (once per week minimum) there is a chance it will go to you!

All postcard-sized plots will be mailed in an envelope to keep them safer in transit.

You will also receive invites to try any early games and works-in-progress.

You will also get access to my patreon feed, updated multiple times per week with all of the small and large projects I create. (You can see 'em elsewhere but, nice to get them in one place, right?)

(If you don't want physical mail for whatever reason, you can opt out of those rewards.)
  • At least once a week I'll draw a postcard on the plotter that will be mailed to a random patron
  • Invites to try early games and works-in-progress
  • Access to everything I post (you can see 'em elsewhere but, nice to get them in one place, right?)

OK now we're talking

At this tier, you get everything from the previous tier, but with more plotter treats and games!

You're still in the pool to receive random post cards, but you also get 3 postcards a year mailed to you (in addition to any random ones!). These postcards are all drawn with my plotter and completely unique.

You also get a copy of any paid game I release. Typically this will be an Itch.io download link.
  • A copy of any digital games I release
  • Three times a year you'll get a unique plotter-drawn postcard (you can still be selected at random to receive one of my weekly postcards on top of this!)
  • At least once a week I'll draw a postcard on the plotter that will be mailed to a random patron
  • Invites to try early games and works-in-progress
  • Access to everything I post (you can see 'em elsewhere but, nice to get them in one place, right?)

Let's mail you some big art!

$10
per month
This is where it starts to make sense for me to mail you big things! At this tier you get a large plotter drawing once a year, along with a little care package of plotter goodies.

The drawing and the care package are both selected by me, but please be in touch about which of my work you like!
(You must be on this tier for 5 months to claim this reward)

At this level, once per month you can also request a fully commented version of any tweetcart I post. The breakdown will be posted publicly. 

You also get everything in the previous tiers.
  • One large plotter drawing per year (9" x 12")
  • Once per month you can request a tweetcart for me to fully comment and release
  • Goodie package of plotter odds and ends once per year
  • A copy of any digital games I release
  • Three times a year you'll get a unique plotter-drawn postcard (you can still be selected at random to receive one of my weekly postcards on top of this!)
  • At least once a week I'll draw a postcard on the plotter that will be mailed to a random patron
  • Invites to try early games and works-in-progress
  • Access to everything I post (you can see 'em elsewhere but, nice to get them in one place, right?)

About Andy Wallace

Hi there! I'm Andy Wallace! I make art with computers: pen plotter art, creative code & experimental video games. Backing this patreon helps to keep my small digital content & writing free and available to all, and gets you some unique, original pen plotter art in the mail!

There are a lot of ways you might have been introduced to my work.



💫 Maybe you know me from my arcade game PARTICLE MACE.

👾 Maybe you know me from my work with Death By Audio Arcade to create new one-of-a-kind game installations, like the 5-foot long Salmon Roll controller, or the Place To Bury Strangers pinball machine that shoots strobes and smoke into your face while you play, or the no-screen/all-LED game Circumnavigators created with Juno Morrow.

🛠 Maybe you've used some of my free tools, like my openFrameworks plotter library ofxGCode, or my TCG Booster Pack Generator.

📖 Maybe you've read some of my technical guides and breakdowns, like this design and process notebook for creating Salmon Roll, this detailed breakdown of my 557 byte Pico-8 game Hand Cram, or this process for creating neural net art for machine-generated Magic: The Gathering cards.

🧨 Or maybe you know some of my actively antagonistic hell-product tools like Rev-Ind (reverse indents your code), or this guide for how to make a functional mouse suspended in honey.

🖼 Maybe you just like looking at my #tweetcarts and plotter art on twitter! (I've got great news for you about my reward tiers if that's the case!)



I make a lot of things. Things that I think are beautiful or magical or challenging or useful. And generally these are things that I don't want to charge for; I want to put them out into the world and let people enjoy them for free. Backing this patreon will let me keep doing that!



Backing this patreon means you're helping to fund these larger projects, as well as a steady drip of smaller analog and digital projects several times per week. You can expect at least one new thing in your inbox every week, and typically it's more like 3 or 4. Those smaller projects might include:

  • Tweet length Processing sketches (like this)
  • Tweet length Pico-8 carts (like this)
  • Pen plotter experiments (like this)
Becoming a patron helps to justify the time spent on them and lets me know that folks enjoy them, which is a big encouragement! 

In return for supporting all this free digital content, patrons get super-cool plotter art rewards.



I don't have much exclusive digital content in my reward tiers not only because plotter art is fun and gorgeous, but because I want my digital content to remain freely available. Outside of larger games, I do not put my digital art or writing behind a paywall. I want to keep it that way! Becoming a patron will get you some unique physical art, but it will also help ensure that my digital art stays accessible.
