Hello friends!
My name is Kris Carter and I am an artist based in the beautiful land of Oregon, with a passion for creating expressive, whimsical and fine art illustrations (I think they are just fine!).

Right now I am currently writing and illustrating a soon-to-be self-published and self-financed children's picture book.  My dream is for this project to become a series of books as I have already laid out the framework for several more stories.

Why Patreon? And what is Patreon?

"Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for creators (like me) to get paid."
With your kind help and support (I can't thank you enough friends) as a Patron and super-amazing fan of my work it will allow me unfettered freedom in creating and sharing with you content that will bring a smile to your face and joy to your day; and eventually picture books to share with your children!  We are on this journey together and I will invest everything back into my projects for you to enjoy!

Please do NOT feel obligated to pay me a cent!
But, if you do, you will be supporting not only me and my craft, but will be providing the solid foundation for me to be creatively free.  To produce great stuff, and to share it with you!

Current Project (Main)
My very first, fully illustrated and self-published children's book.  The story is written and has gone through multiple proofs and edits.  It is now time to start the lengthy process of bringing the story to visual life with beautiful illustrations!  With your help I will be able to accomplish this and we will be able to share this journey together!  I will be posting bits of the story, along with my entire journey in the creation of the artwork via photos and video clips.

What is the title of your book?
Me and My Big Brother - Build The Most Amazing Forts.  

Other Projects and Errata
I will post other non-Patron and Patron-only content of drawings, paintings and future project ideas as often as I can! I will also post things about ME, so you can get to know me better (and have a two-conversation).  I'll post about the music I am currently listening to, the artists that inspire, links and resources I use and come across.  This is a two-way street and I don't expect a hand out for nothing.  I want you to be entertained and feel and SEE a return for your absolutely amazing kindness and support!

Go here to see some of my current work and random postings (as well as some stuff for sale)!

$0 of $250 per month
When I reach $250 per month I will post a full length, time-lapse video of me taking a sketch to final render and painting.  I will of course post other images and videos on my feed but this will be something very special!  Thank you!
