You want to see some messy idea-finding scribbles and contribute to my pot of inspiration*? Then this is the tier for you! Well, it's also the only tier.

* read the about section to learn more about how this works. Of course you don't have to throw in prompts if you're not in the mood for that. I'm grateful about silent observers as well.

About Stella Bialek

Hello there, nice to meet you! My name is Stella and I love drawing cute, weird and silly creatures in my tiny sketchbook. Here on Patreon you can get a look behind the scenes to see how I come up with my creatures - and with a little bit of luck you can even influence what I am creating.

Inspiration
Have you ever stared at a blank page with no idea where to even start? I certainly have. To overcome this first step, my favourite technique is to draw inspiration from a random word. I started doing this with randomly generated adjectives (as it turns out, there is a bunch of websites that will pick random words for you) but I want to involve you in this process: as a supporter on Patreon you get to pick a word which I will add to my pot of inspiration. Each week I will pick four of these words at random and use them as a source of inspiration for the next sketchbook page.
  • when you sign up for the Seedling tier you automaticially get access to the Patreon exclusive section on my website, where you can enter your suggestions
  • my sketchbook is usually two or three weeks ahead of posting schedule, so there is a delay between providing a suggestion and the first chance for it to show up on a sketchbook page
  • you can throw in a bunch of suggestions at once but only one of them will be "active" at the time - this means everybody has the same chance of their suggestion being picked, regardless of how many you threw in
  • I might tweak the "randomness" a little to avoid one person having their suggestion picked multiple times in a row while somebody else never gets theirs (I won't pick favourites though!)


Goals
$61 of $291.96 per month
I would love to make my own prints at home. When we reach this goal I will buy a nice printer and add a new tier that gets you a monthly print of your choice.
