I've decided to start up a Patreon account as a supplement to my long running blog, where I write about my art process, experiences, and share images and other information regarding art.
Since 2006, I have been writing and sharing on this blog while also working full time. These days I am taking time off from work in order to develop my personal art more fully, work that is a departure from my commercial portfolio. At the same time, I would like to continue to share and expand my art process with time lapses, video demos, materials recommendations, notes, concept development, book recommendations, class recommendations, and sharing of ideas.
Patreon is a place where I can do more, share more, and get a little support while doing so.
Throughout 2019 I will offer two monthly tiers:
- thank you for your support @ $2 per month
- my monthly downloadable e-sketchbook @ $3 per month (beginning first week in July)
The sketchbook will be a PDF each month and will include sketchbook studies and paintings, thoughts about sketching, materials, how-to sketchbook practice, and other material that will only be offered in the e-sketchbook. I will continue to share my sketches on social media, but the e-sketchbook will be for patrons to keep, plus the bonus patreon only material.
