About Ally Burke

My name is Ally and I am an artist residing on the Virginia-Tennessee border. I work primarily with acrylic paint and ink. Sometimes I explore my own fears through my art as a way of overcoming them, sometimes I just want to draw monster girls. I also love Halloween, the occult, science fiction, and body horror, so these themes are often present in what I do.  

I'm on Patreon because, as a child during the Y2K era, I grew up in what felt like a weird fog of panic and dread, and as such have always dreamed of starting my own doomsday cult. Unfortunately, I lack charisma, and don't have much to offer in the way of spiritual guidance in these uncertain times. I can, however, offer stickers and other printed goods, so creating something more like a secret club for the people who like what I do seemed like a better option anyway.

Here I will be sharing works in progress, sketches, step-by-step looks at my painting process, and possibly even tutorials and stories about the cave my dad wanted us to move into in 1998 before society collapsed. For anyone interested in pledging a little more than pocket change I'm offering surprise rewards to be mailed out monthly. I understand that you could be using your hard-earned money to buy a couple of frozen burritos instead of supporting art, so I promise to make your support worth it.


Select a membership level
the post club
$1
per month
-You'll get access to the patron-only blog, where I'll post WIPs and probably ramble about the flat earth videos I watch on YouTube while I paint. 


the sticker club
Limited (16 of 20 remaining)
$5
per month
-Every month you'll receive an envelope containing an exclusive sticker, or a set of stickers, that will never be for sale anywhere else. On special occasions the stickers might even be hand drawn. They definitely won't just be a bunch of "CREMATED REMAINS" labels I stole from the post office. I would never do that. 

-You'll also receive access to the patron-only blog posts.


(International patrons, please add an extra $1 to your pledge for postage.)

the postcard club
Limited (8 of 15 remaining)
$5
per month
-Every month you'll receive a postcard from me, not a blank postcard, an actual postcard stamped and mailed as a postcard, or in an envelope to shield it from the eyes of federal employees. Sometimes it will be a postcard with my art printed on it. Sometimes it will be a postcard from my collection of odd ephemera. Sometimes it will have coded messages that will help you uncover who built the moon. And sometimes it will have original drawings scribbled on it. You'll never know until it shows up in your mailbox and you wonder what the hell it is before remembering, "Oh yes, I'm a member of a postcard club, and it seems the moon is hiding a terrible secret." 

-You'll also receive access to the patron-only blog posts.

the ephemera collection club
Limited (6 of 15 remaining)
$13
per month
-Every month you'll receive an envelope containing various paper goods including stickers as described in the previous sticker club tier, and something extra that could be postcards, a small print, even miniature original art or photos I took in the woods trying to prove that Bigfoot steals fruit pies from my local Food City Bakery.   

-You'll also receive access to the patron-only blog posts.


(International patrons, please add an extra $1 to your pledge for postage.)

the mysterious package club
Limited (5 of 5 remaining)
$30
per month
-Every month you'll receive a mysterious package. It could contain exclusive prints, stickers, pins, or even original art and new zines. Maybe even sticks from the wooded lot beside my house, or live spiders. Probably not that last thing, but maybe. It's a surprise, and sometimes surprises are horrible and disappointing, contingent upon how you feel about spiders. 

-You'll also receive access to the patron only blog posts.


(International patrons, please add an extra $10 to your pledge for postage.)

Goals
$171 of $300 per month
I've calculated that this would help me cover enough of my monthly expenses that I would stop stress-fantasizing about starting over as a paralegal or something every time sales at my online shop slow down.
