Hi, I am Aaron Bass, illustrator, graphic designer and founder of Third Eye Creative.co.uk. I specialise in detailed hand drawn work, fine lines and intricate designs. I am open for commissions and creative projects.

It has always been my dream to start my own successful business. I have known from a very young age that all I want to do for the rest of my life is draw for a living.

Just over a year ago I decided to create a website and put together whatever products I could afford to create. I started an instagram page https://www.instagram.com/third.eye.creative/ and began to create better and more work than ever before. Since then I have made 0 sales, instagram engagement has been disappointing, and honestly my motivation and sanity are wearing thin.

Much like many other people, I have a mundane day job that causes me a lot of stress and unhappiness, in my case I stretch canvas all day long for a multi-million pound company that prints successful artists' work onto canvas that I then stretch onto a frame. I feel that the only way I will ever be successful in my entrepreneurial endeavours is to spend every waking moment creating more art and trying to mould a business of my own.

Unfortunately for me I have no savings, no family that can help and I'm still in debt from being at university 8 years ago. I have always been in work but never had a job well paying enough to save any money on top of my rent and basic outgoings, not for lack of trying.

On a positive note, I truly believe in my business and believe that if I could gain more exposure and create more products that people want and even maybe have somewhere other than my tiny living room to work, I could be successful.

All the money I receive to help me kickstart Third Eye Creative will be spent on helping me with the difficult transition from full time employment to working for myself and creating exciting things full time.

To be honest, so far it has been quite a lonely road, I don't know any other artists or anyone in the industry and my work doesn't seem to reach many people.

I am inviting you on the Third Eye creative journey, please join me and be a part of something real, interesting and undoubtably cool as fu*k.

Goals
$0 of $650 per month
Being able to earn an extra £500 (roughly $650) a month would allow me to work a couple of days less a week, valuable time to devote to improving my illustration skills and experimenting with different mediums.

I also know for a fact that this money - which may not seem like much to a lot of people - would make the world of difference to my mental health, and allow me to sleep more than a couple of hours a night (which has been my life recently).

I look forward to taking you on this journey, and sharing my experience and ever-growing passion for creating new illustrations that you discover something new in every time you look at them.
