PATREON

What is Patreon?

Some of you may already be familiar with this amazing platform that helps support artists and creators while giving you, the Patron, something in return. I’ve recently revamped my reward tiers and thought that it deserved a special breakdown and I that I’d share the description right from the source for you:

On Patreon, you can let your fans become active participants in the work they love by offering them a monthly membership. You give them access to exclusive content, community, and insight into your creative process. In exchange, you get the freedom to do your best work, and the stability you need to build an independent creative career.

Why become a Patron?

I’m incredibly fortunate to be a full-time graphic designer currently, but my true passion is in creating art. I want to be able to share with other artists tips and tricks to improve their own art. I also want to teach others how to use basic graphic design principles to improve their personal branding or as tools for creating better artwork.

By becoming one of my Patrons, you are contributing to my goal of being able to transition to being a full-time artist and continue to share the things I’ve learned with others on a grander scale.

What will I learn?

In my past experiences writing a monthly Q&A column for COLORED PENCIL Magazine and my guest appearances on the Sharpened Artist Colored Pencil Podcast, I’ve learned there are a lot of topics not being covered by other artists. While I will show you tips and techniques for working with colored pencil and mixed media, my goal is also to provide something different than some of my fellow artists on Patreon.

I’ll be giving you an inside look at creating artwork from a graphic designer’s perspective. This will include the programs I use to create the concept for my artwork, how I approach balance in my layouts using a designer’s eye, and any other related tips or information that will help you start creating your own creative compositions and improve your personal branding.
