Hello! I'm AJ or Ava -- whichever you prefer -- and welcome to my Patreon page!
I've been hesitant to create a Patreon page for a while, I've never considered my art or cosplay really worthy of being something that people would look forward to. And to be honest, I still think that. But insecurities aside, I've been wanting to support myself through my art for a long time and I'd continued to put it off. But I want to give it a shot! 

Honestly, I would've continued to put it off if times weren't so hard for me. In 2017, Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico. Despite what the news says, the island is still recovering and struggling with basic needs like clean water and electricity. And now, the earthquakes are so frequent, my family's home is damaged. I'm a bit caught between two worlds - my home on the island and my studies and work in the States. But even if I'm not in school, even if I don't have electricity sometimes, or am working some odd job to make ends meet, I want to continue making art and pursuing cosplay. And by supporting me on Patreon, you're doing just that - allowing me to devote time to doing what I love and continue meeting the wonderful people who I've met by sharing my work.  

If you know me, I make silly fanart with dumb themes with the occasional serious piece here and there and I love to joke around a lot, and I still am that person but supporting myself through art is something I really want for my life and I take that goal very seriously. Especially now, that after two and a half years I can finally go back to school! Because once I graduate, I'm a freelancer (which is artist speak for unemployed). Every cent or dollar makes me one step closer to achieving that goal of just living off of my art and making art I enjoy for the sake of making it and that is something I hold very precious to me. 

$9 of $200 per month
This goal is to help me build a solid Patreon foundation. While I'm finishing up school, I really want this page to be a good resource for people to learn a little art themselves while enjoying the content I am creating. While I'm still in school, I don't have to worry about it as much, but once I graduate and officially become a freelance illustrator, I really want Patreon to be the thing that supports me financially so I can make the art that I want and not what someone who hires me demands.
