"A few more supporters, and maybe I'll set up a Patreon . . ." I can't count the number of times I said that to myself.  The fact is, I'm starting to really push myself now, and that is thinning what little of a safety net I once had . . . I owe over a hundred bucks to close friends as I type these words, and I only made a little over a thousand last year.  But, four whole figures!  I'm doing it!  I'm being an artist for real!  I can't slow down now, just because I can't afford the booth fees and permit fees and- yeah, you get the idea.  I know people who are so much further along in their professional-kickass careers, and they don't have a Patreon yet.  "A few more supporters," they mumble, and blush, and look at the floor.

So, here I am.  And here you all are: friends I've known for years and fans that have just come across me on the wide, wide web and everybody inbetween.  Thank you, thank you so much.  I should let you know here that I have a rather severe flavor of Seasonal Affective Depression which kicks in sometime in May or June and lets up in October or November.  It's quite possible that I won't produce anything, or rather less, in that time.  

Please try to be patient, I promise that I'm not dead, only hibernating.  I am on meds and many other forms of self-care during my yearly depression, but it's hard to make something new when I'm concentrating on just sticking around for another turn of the wheel of seasons, you know?  Those first chill breezes of autumn thrill me like the first warm breezes of spring do for you much more numerous winter-SAD folk.  

I feel like there's so much more to me than I've said or described here on my page, but perhaps that's better covered in an intro video.  Would anyone read a giant wall of text?  I can talk about myself until even I'm bored.

Aw, you're nice.  Anyone at this level or above gets priority during my Q&A sessions.

No more lonely inboxes!  Patreons at this level will get a little somethin' somethin' emailed to them every month, as well as everything below.  It'll probably be an in-progress image of some sort.
Half-growns
$20 or more per creation
Wanna hang out?  Once a month we'll do some sort of a FaceBook Live type of thing, just you guys and me.  Adults are welcome to consume adult beverages.  Of course you get all the low-tier stuff, too!
A Flight of Friends
$30 or more per creation
Actual physical mail for you, every month that I'm producing.  (Which, as a reminder, may only be half the year.)  You'll get a small something mailed to you every month, probably a prototype of something I'm figuring out.  In the months I'm doing digital art or writing only, you'll get a finished image/piece in your inbox.  You'll also get all the lower-tier items.

In addition to all the lower tiers, you'll also be able to appear in my art- you, a friend of yours, a pet, a relative- just send me some images and I will find a way to incorporate them into a piece or image.  You'll be doing me a favor, it's a lot more fun to put familiar people into the backgrounds of paintings, illustrations and comics than strangers!  Please be patient, it may take me a few months to include you in the first piece.

At 20 Patrons, I'll increase the number of local shows I'm doing to at least 4 per year.  Local patrons will get many more chances to see me vending in person!
