Every. Single. Dollar. Helps. This tier is for people I know who want to be a part of my journey but can’t quite get a piece of art. This is how you help me. It’s like Netflix and chill...sort of. 


I cannot guarantee this tier will receive anything on a regular basis, but as I get more into design-work on my drawing end there will be stickers I put out and I will send one to you as they come out. If there’s several designs I put out in a month and make into stickers, you get to pick your favorite.


With this tier you will also gain access to behind-the-scenes posts, be able to ask me questions about what I’m up in art and why, and receive a 10% discount code in my Merch store. When I hit my earnings goals there are also some cool perks you’ll receive.

Fan of the Arts
Limited (9 of 10 remaining)
$100
per month

For those of you who are looking to collect my art on a regular basis as I evolve and grow this is a great way to get a taste of everything. Not too big, not too little, great to keep, great to give, and hopefully one day be worth some big money. Think of it like a date night with an artist, but you get to keep the art forever.


Your $100 per/month contribution will get you your choice of a 16x20 painting from a private gallery of work I do throughout the month. You can either trust me to do whatever happens to come to mind as I experiment my way though paint and canvas, or you can request that a couple specific color make their way into at least several selections.


The gallery will be opened to all people in this level at the same time and it will be on a first-come-first served basis but, do not worry about missing. I will make sure there is at least one you like that will make you happy you spent the money, or, well, your money back.


With this tier you will also gain access to behind-the-scenes posts, be able to ask me questions about what I’m up in art and why, and receive a 25% discount code in my Merch store. When I hit my earnings goals there are also some cool perks you’ll receive.

About I am Wessel


Two years ago I
decided to dive into the deep and jump from commercial photography into art. I was angry, frustrated, and tired. Something was missing. 10 years of shooting everything from fashion to food to product across the country and around the world... but no matter how much I tried it never felt like I was able to say anything. The noise of an industry all shouting the same thing, deafening. So, one dark night in a room with no windows I picked up a sketchbook and from there tumbled down into the rabbit hole that has become the journey of my life, art.

My name is Wessel and I’d like you to be a part of my story.

The whole shebang of how I got here, what I’m thinking, what I’m doing, planning, everything, is spread across the last 11 years of my life on blogs, in magazine articles, in photos, paintings, drawings, podcasts, and I can’t even remember what else. Basically I’ve been creating non-stop in a search for my voice, corny as it may sound. Think millions of words, thousands of photos, hundreds of videos. That search has become the driving force behind everything I create. Day-in and day-out, between all my business rumblings I paint, draw, sculpt, whatever comes to mind with whatever supplies I have around. Every. Day. Iteration and experimentation is the only way to learn, and I want to get good at the voice I am slowly discovering.

My Patreon is simple.

Think of it as an art subscription service with some behind-the-scenes work-in-progress details. My friends actually thought this up and brought it to me after buying a series of paintings month after month after month. I realized I have a number of people investing in my work on a regular basis so this seemed the next step to find more who might be interested in the same. I’m painting all the time anyways and centralizing will help people to see all that I’m up to so they can pick their favorites and not miss anything.

The tiers are basically based on canvas size, with the highest probably being the most interesting, not because of size but because it lets me play however I want. Being a part of my private group will allow you to have some input on what goes into what you’ll be receiving. Many people, I’ve found, find it hard to trust an artist, wanting to control the output through micromanagement, but, trust me, you wanna let me create however my mind happens to be flowing.

Over the last 2 years I’ve done close to 300 paintings (recent abstract phase of 4 months was 250 of 300) and rocked through countless sketchbooks, with my monthly average slowing as the work gets more and more detailed. A lot of my time is currently taken by doing daily LIVE sketches on Facebook and Instagram as I skill up for client commissions, which is something I will keep members aware of because it’s great to have people who like my work come through and chat.

I’m sure there’s like a thousand things I didn’t write about that I should have but the gist of me is, 100% committed artist for 12 years and counting, you subscribe and get paintings, my current blog is at www.iamwessel.com. If you have any questions, please ask. My schedule is all mine all day as a freelancer so responses should be quick.

Thank you and hope you have a great day!

Wessel

REGARDING COMMISSIONS

I am open for commissions outside of Patreon. Cost is on a case-by-case basis, but to give an idea, my 16x20 size is $150 and goes up from there depending on the size. If you’re interested I can send a message with the details of the process. I like to keep it simple and make sure everyone is happy at the end of the day. Several people have already asked so I wanted to put this in the main bio.
Goals
$92 of $500 per month
Everything for me is so day to day that when I reach an earnings goal of $500 I’ll be able to spend some more time creating content to help y’all see into the process versus hunting for a dolla. I will create at least 1 start to finish time-lapse of a painting per month and be able to start creating some more quick videos to show you what’s going on.
