Hi! I'm Elaine Ramirez, but you can call me Lainey. You may know me from DeviantArt, Etsy, Instagram, Facebook (MySpace?) or "in real life." I work at a comic shop and on the side I cultivate my illustration career selling artwork and products I create from those pieces. Juggling work, school, and The Dream of being an artiste is pretty taxing... especially when I'm only earning minimum wage. But I do have some free time and in that free time I focus on The Dream and YOU can help.

Plainly put, my first goal is to maintain membership at my local maker space. I've got a pretty sweet deal being an original member but should I have to cancel I lose that discount should I want to rejoin. And it's PRICEY. Instead of having unlimited access as I do now, I would have to pay dues AND usage time by the minute. Since my financial situation has changed a bit your help means I can have access to a computer design lab, laser cutters, 3D printers, UV printers, a work space, and a face to face creative community. I would really hate to cut this out.

After that? Basically, the more contributions I get will directly go towards me living The Dream (that's me creating things for everyone to enjoy instead of working for someone else and not creating on the clock) $480 each month means I can give up a day comfortably. $480x2=$960=2 days off work=2 days working on The Dream. And so on towards $3K/month. $3000 will cover my living expenses, the maker space, and ultimately give me all the time in the world to LiveStream digital sessions, make things to sell (or add to the Patreon Rewards). The Dream will have been obtained!

The BUTTON OF THE MONTH CLUB is a fun way for you to get cool limited designs! Each month I'll create and make a lil' sumthin for you to cherish forever (or if you hate it, gift it, sell it on the black market, opportunities are endless!) Buttons are easily my most popular sellers so I figured this may be the best way to reach my immediate goals!

I'm really glad you found me, and if you become a Patron, I won't be able to thank you enough.

13 Lucky art loving Patrons a month can get illustrated Art Cards (domestic shipping is included)! Slots are currently limited as I work full time....should we reach more goals I can offer more original art minis! Leave me to my own devices or suggest an idea. I won't judge you if it's not PG (....but if you are under 18, please keep requests legal!!)

I will send you one of 5 postcard sized pieces of art that I poured my heart into each month. This also includes domestic shipping. The slots are currently limited due to my full time work schedule but providing greater goals are met, more slots will open! THANKS for being a true supporter of the arts!
Goals
$32 of $120 per month
$120 are my monthly dues at a maker space which I'd love to continue having access to. It's just out of my reach, but I'd appreciate the help!
