Hey everyone, I'm fangled melon, or Shilo if you want to get technical. I currently work in the video game industry as a 3D generalist (the swiss army knife of 3d artist). I love what I do for a living and I'm very lucky to be where I'm at...seriously! Before that I worked for a research department at a school dedicated to game development, where I got to develop behind the scenes tech but also help students learn the inside ropes of programs like Maya, Zbrush and a few others. 

But as much as I love the 3D world and everything that comes with it, I love to draw, always have. Started as a kid, haven't stopped and it turns out not even all the coolest tech and computer programs in the world can get me to stop doodling. It's crazy and I fail to understand it.

Last year I started a little series on Instagram called #daddoodles that I absolutely love doing. They chronical the daily escapades of my almost two year old son and help me cope having to spend so much time away from him for work. It's been great so far!

But why, Patreon?

Patreon is an amazing community, and with your support, you would help me turn my dad doodles into a daily comic strips encompassing all aspects of being a dad in the late 2010's.
I'll also be working on an eventual romantic/comedic graphic novel about my life growing up as a twin, in a three bedroom/one bathroom house with 8 people and how my wife and I's friendship blossomed after she kicked me in the balls...Instant connection.
To top if all off I'll be turning my illustrations into posters and prints! 

What's in it for me?
With your pledge (no matter what) you'll get my undying thanks and a huge supply of fun, lighthearted happy drawings (with the occasional disturbing flesh eating zombie fangly watermelon thrown in every once in a while). 
If this really takes off I will take a dive into the 3d world, but with a focus on you, my patron. That means tutorials, break down vids and files for you to pour over.
