Let's be honest, there's very little that I can offer you in terms of rewards that would truly make becoming a Patron "worth your money".
Hopefully I haven't totally missed the mark with this assumption. If you're signing up to become a patron, you're probably doing it because you care about me. You want to see my wildlife drawing adventure continue, and not because of the rewards I'm offering.
With that said, below is an attempt to give you a few extra "perks" for becoming a Patron.
1. By becoming a Patron you'll get more access to me!
I don't always have time to reply to every email, but I do my absolute best to respond to each and every comment/question I receive here on the Patreon page.
2. Sketchbook first look
This tier grants access to exclusive art! I'll share a behind-the-scenes look into my sketchbook, and WIPs posted only here for Patrons. Plus I'll talk about my process of creating each drawing.
4. 25% Discount off anything in my shop
Access to a 25% off discount in my shop, for as long as you are a Patron of this tier. This includes art, prints, courses, and anything else I offer at chriswilsonstudio.com. The secret discount code will be sent to you each month after payment.
Once again, here's what you'll get:
- More access to me
- Sketchbook first look
- Monthly 25% off shop discount code
The fact that anyone would give me money to continue this amazing drawing adventure is a little mind blowing to me. I can't offer you much, but just know that you have my utmost gratitude.
- You'll get ALL of the rewards listed above.
- Plus, I'll send you a limited edition postcard mini print every month!
*must support at least 10 videos per month to receive a mini-print
Quite a few of you suggested this, so here I am :) Welcome to my Patreon page!
In September of 2005 I started drawing wildlife in my sketchbook every day. Pursuing my wildlife art full-time was scary. But I knew I'd never regret it. I wanted to document my creative adventure in some way, so I decided to start sharing this adventure through videos on YouTube.
I had no clue how much that decision would change my life.
This adventure was originally supposed to be something I did every now and then... But here I am with the new found personal goal to draw wildlife, explore this crazy world of ours, and share everything in the wonderful medium of VIDEO.
I've debated for a LONG time about whether or not I should create a page here on Patreon. The personal battle I went through ultimately boiled down to the value I felt like I was creating. I think a lot of creatives undervalue the work they do and the impact it can have on people's lives. I sure did.
I’m here because I really just want to be able to talk to you!
Over the last couple of years, I’ve honestly been living the dream; sharing my art online with the most amazing community of people and shipping my art all around the world! The support has been amazing. Having you all around me has driven me further than I ever thought my drawings would take me.
Any contribution you make, even the littlest, goes towards supporting me as I work to create my best drawing adventures ever, continue to learn, explore, and share the adventure with you along the way.
While I've recently started to share my videos – I didn't realize the impact my videos were having on other people's lives until I started receiving messages. Messages that said I was inspiring people to live a more creative life, and to make being creative everyday a part of their daily lives!
The idea that my fun travel and drawing videos could have such an impact on people's lives still blows my mind! I've never done anything that has had this big of an impact on so many people, and I want to keep it going. This brings me so much joy, and I'm not ready for it to end.
If you've made it this far, thank you! I know not everyone who reads this will have the disposable income to become a patron, and in no way "expect" you to contribute financially. I'm more than grateful for any and all the support I receive.
While I'm offering a few extra "rewards" to those of you who decide to become patrons, I still need everyone's support to continue this journey. If you can't or don't want to become a patron, I'll be just as happy to have your continued support on YouTube by watching, liking, commenting, and sharing my videos :)
How does it all work?
Pledge any amount you like and get access to the rewards that go along with them. Payments are processed at the beginning of the month and I’ll post up the rewards throughout!
The best part is you can cancel or change your pledge whenever you want!
Whatever you choose, even if nothing at all, thanks for just checking this out you silly lovely person!
P.S. – Still have questions about Patreon? Check out this fancy video they made:
20 videos per month x $150 per video = $3,000
If I can hit $150 I'll be SO CLOSE to covering all of my out of pocket travel expenses. This amount will make it possible for me to focus fully on creating drawing videos continue no matter how where I travel to and draw!
