Hi! I'm Mist but you probably know me as xxMisty. I'm a disabled transgender artist from the UK who has spent the last year rebuilding my art skills after a near enough 20 year break from drawing. I love all kinds of art but both my passion and strengths lie with realistic or detailed art such as portraits etc. I love taking part in fandoms and drawing characters from popular media. I do love all forms of tradition art too but right now i'm really into digital drawing and have built up a stash of work to share!

I'm doing my best to make a living from art after being unable to work for the past two years. I have complicated health issues including fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, endometriosis, narcolepsy, cataplexy, migraines, eczema and asthma but I'd always managed to keep working to some degree. However, in December 2015 I had meningitis and my health and life collapsed. It took months to even begin any form of recovery, then 7 months later it reoccurred (I had no idea that was even possible). There have been further reoccurrences since and each time is like hitting a reset button back to 0% health. Very little is understood about recurrent meningitis. I also live with severe anxiety which I've been dealing with since I was a child. I also support my fiancée lucy who is also my carer and literally keeps me alive. She's encouraged me to draw again after almost 20 years and has given me so much support getting back into this.

My health does affect my ability to draw, the fibromyalgia causes severe pain throughout my body but the worst is usually in my hands. My co-ordination is also shot to pieces and the meningitis has affected my vision and hearing too. Some days I simply can't work but I do my best to draw as near to daily as I can. 

If you enjoy seeing my art and would like the chance to influence some of my upcoming pieces whilst supporting me then I'd be grateful if anything you can donate! Every penny is greatly appreciated. Please keep watching because I have lots of projects coming up in the next few months!

i'm grateful for any support you can offer me as I embark upon my new journey. I'll be shuffling some perks as I become more established and have more to offer. If you ever need to cancel or change your pledge, don't worry about it - times change and money is fickle, I completely understand and I am just incredibly thankful for you to support me in any way at all. You'really awesome - thank you for reading!
Tiers
Tip Jar
$1 or more per month

It doesn't cost a fortune to offer encouragement! just a dollar a month will get you my sincere thanks and help me to keep on drawing. Thank you!

Tip Jar Plus
$2 or more per month

It still doesn't cost a fortune to offer encouragement!! Two dollars a month will give me a serious boost of encouragement and in turn I'll send you my thanks and a shout-out on my next patron only post. 

Cheer Squad
$5 or more per month

Five dollars gets you into the starting-to-make-a-real-difference camp! As well as my thanks and a shout-out you'll be able to participate in patron-only polls, contribute suggestions and see previews of my new art before I post them publically anywhere.

Awesomeness Squad
$10 or more per month

Ten dollars would make a big difference and help me start to develop some of my personal projects such as a web comic I want to flesh out and launch. You'll get everything from the five dollar tier plus occasional digital extras such as in-progress sneak previews, wallpapers etc. As soon as I'm more established I'll be fleshing out this tier for patrons who stick with me for a few months.

Dedicated Squad
$20 or more per month

Thanks doesn't even begin to cover my gratitude for anyone jointing this tier! You'll get everything above plus after your first payment has gone through I'll create a doodle of any character, person or creature of your choosing to say a heartfelt thank you!

Absolute Lifesaver Squad
$50 or more per month

If you can support me at this level i will be eternally grateful and hopefully will offer you some rewards to show that! You'll get everything from the 20 dollar tier except that instead of the doodle you can request a full drawing of anyone (or anything) you choose (one character only) after your first payment has gone through, and if you stick with me you can request another every 12 months. Plus I'll offer a discount on any additional commissions you order in the meanwhile.

Swoon Squad
$100 or more per month

You are a hero, you know that? Thank you. Thank you so much. You'll get everything above, plus a more complicated request of your choice after your first payment has cleared. You're amazing, and I'll shout it from the rooftops! (note: the rooftop shouting may not be literal, but I'll certainly make it known you're a fantastic supporter!)
