About Fran Meneses

Hi there! Welcome to my Patreon page! 

(There’s cookies, coffee and tea on the table, make yourself at home)

I’m Fran, but most of the interwebz knows me as Frannerd. I’m a freelance illustrator living in Hastings, UK and I love uploading illustrations and videos to make you feel happy, inspired and motivated so you can keep drawing and pursuing your dreams and goals.

I joined Patreon almost a year ago and I did it because it allows me to fund my art and videos. It also gives me the possibility to interact more with you guys, and updating my social media much more often. Your support allows me to be focused in creating awesome projects like videos, travel journals, book projects, web comics and Instagram illustrations. It also helps me help you to solve your questions about illustration, how to stay motivated and get inspired in life and work. Your pledges help me to buy art supplies, pay my bills, feed my cats, but most importantly, they will give me the mental space to focus on bigger and better projects, while also having the time to hang out with you more often!


How it works

If you like my work, and you want to help me, just choose how much you want to pledge per month (even $1 makes a difference!) and select some cool perks like livedraws, Q&A’s, secret extra drawings or getting to know more about the projects I’m currently working on.

And don’t worry! You can edit or cancel your pledge anytime you want.

 I appreciate so much any support of my art you’re willing to give, so I can keep doodling for you

Can't believe I'm even WRITING THIS, but holy bananas guys, 5-FREAKING-K! D: If we do ever reach 5K I'd love to do an Illustration Club with you guys; when I was 5 or 6 years old my sister and I had clubs all the time and I used to draw my own drawing club's id hahaha, so this would be like a dream come true to me! Some activities I'm thinking on the top of my head: • illustration challenges and activities regularly • every time I visit a new city, I'd love to meet you and organise a coffee + drawing date together!  AND • a lovely and inclusive community where we can all share tips, advice and resources about freelance life and illustration!
