VHS Girl is creating YOUR FAVORITE TAPES ONLY FUNNIER (acrylic on wood)

Hey folks, I'm VHS GIRL, a nerd in her early 30s who was apparently born inside a Blockbuster. Since I was old enough to put a tape in a VCR, I've been obsessed with TV and movies. Sure, there's other analog formats, but Beta Girl just doesn't command that kind of power.

Anyway, subscribing to me (even for a $1) helps me from grinding the wheel so hard doing social media to make those sales, and more time to do what I really want to do, paint a VHS tape on wood and add the taglines that should have been on the box in the first place. I like to speak to myself from the 90s, perusing the local video store, trying to figure out what to rent. So far, I think other people are into it too.

My ultimate goals are 1. healthcare (I haven't been to a dentist in years!) 2. merch --- the more merch I have, the more likely I will be able to turn a profit at festivals, booths, art shows, you name it 3. Gettin' that sweet sweet Macbook Pro, so I can finally find/catalog/mix footage I find from rare VHS and show you that I'm more than just a dorky painting cinephile... this last goal is asking a lot, but there are 45 million people in the US who make over $100 k a year, so hey, you can't blame me for tryin!

At the end of each month I will thank you in an instagram post because I love you and you're amazing. You've basically just paid for my hooks, or half of a paint-pen, or mailing tape. All this little stuff really adds up!
You Get To Pick What I Paint!

By being my sponsor for $5, you are basically paying for my lunch for the day. It's awesome. Thank you.


Please post on my message board and pick a tape for me to paint this month! Any tape- I'll paint it, just for your amusement.

You're awesome! People like you help me buy my supplies in advance every month, whether it be my wood blocks, sawtooth hangers, and paint pens, not to mention, fuel my tape addiction at the local thrift store. For this, you can have a print of any painting I've already done, as well as have access to patron-only blog posts and picture updates.

Goals
$26 of $200 per month
Money for dental/health insurance.  I would really love to paint all the time, and as independent artists go, income is different each month so it's hard to have the things that really matter most when you're budgeting for a rainy day. I could always stop painting and get a full-time job in an office, but that honestly sounds like a nightmare now that I've been painting for three years and have been making enough money to get by paying rent with my artwork! So helping with insurance really takes the stress off and allows me to do what I wanna do, everyday (PAINT!!!!)
