I never thought it would come to this.
Not that there's anything wrong with Patreon, but I feel as though the way I work doesn't fit the usual practices of "internet artists." In other words, within the context of most other artists operating online, my work is commercially impractical.
I thought simply sharing my work to the free and open internet would be the end all be all of my work, and I was happy to just share my work. Then, as time went on and life started to hit, the simple chase became a naive practice. One where I do something I love, and I don't receive anything in return, anything good for the long haul. As much as I wish money didn't matter, as much as I would want to just make and share things for the hell of it, it's unrealistic to ignore it as a necessity to operate in the type of world we live in.
Having only focused on this skill set for the majority of my life I have hit a certain apex in which I struggle financially, existentially and creatively. However, I want to draw, and maybe this will help me love it again. I want to keep going, and honestly, I have no idea what to do. Regardless, I'm trying things that are at my disposal, and this is one of those things. Out of desperation? Perhaps. But I'm hopeful of opportunities to come, even if I'm just shooting in the dark.
I think I make alright work, maybe I just haven't nailed the audience yet.
If you believe that what I do is worth space on this earth, your time, and a dollar, feel free to support me. Cheers, and thank you for you.
What I'll be doing on this joint:
I'll be posting artwork, and product updates here ahead of time, as well as works in progress, and unreleased drawings exclusively. Sharing the things I fuck with, and giving private access to my discord.
