Welcome and Hello!


I'm Wicked West (aka Brenda West/WkdWest), a sculptor and small business owner from the Oregon Coast. You may already know me as the artist who makes Funguise Figurines. These collectible mushroom-inspired sculptures are the heart of my business, but have inspired a wide range of merchandise.

This Patreon provides a behind-the-scenes look into my journey as a small handmade business owner as well as a peek into the unique universe I am creating with my art.



In addition to managing an online storefront for my art through Etsy, I will be making occasional appearances at various craft shows and conventions throughout the year. I LOVE meeting my customers and building relationships with other creators!

. . . . . . .

What can you expect as a Patron?


For as little as $1 a month you can unlock my weekly page updates that contain a detailed summary of what I am working on! I take exclusive Patreon-only photos as well as go into detail about my process, talk about business behind-the-scenes, and describe any hiccups that occur along the way. Anything that isn't covered in my post I am happy to answer in the comments! I generally post 4 updates per month, but sometimes I will share additional BONUS content.



In addition to this digital content, for $5 a month you can receive a special postcard-sized PHOTOGRAPH PRINT of my work! These prints are normally released to my Etsy each Quarter, but as Patrons you will get privileged early-access to collect them as soon as they’re produced!



But, for only $10 a month you can join my EXCLUSIVE MONSTER OF THE MONTH club!! This reward is limited to only 5 lucky patrons who will receive an ORIGINAL DRAWING in the mail EACH MONTH! The subject of these illustrations are a surprise to the Patron and come with an official stamp certifying it as a piece from this exclusive club. Although Patrons at this level do not receive the postcard-sized print, but they do have access to my weekly digital content.



HOWEVER, if that’s not enough you can sign up for my limited QUARTERLY GOODIE BOX! Patrons who pledge at this special tier receive a box in the mail once every three months with the following:
  • 3 New Photograph Prints (5x7 Size)
  • A New Sticker Pack (4 stickers, approx 1.5”x 2” ea)
  • A 2.25” Button featuring a New Illustration
  • AND … 1 PATREON EXCLUSIVE COLORWAY of a Resin Artwork!


Although this tier doesn’t provide the instant-gratification of a reward each month, the wait is worth it: Patrons of my QUARTERLY BOX tier are the ONLY people in the world to receive this exclusive colorway, giving them incredible collector’s value. This tier will be strictly limited to 10 per quarter, and the price per month is TBA.
