I've created a Patreon page
. On it are explanations, a personal video from me, and all my goals and the rewards you can get! Along with my other reasons, the main ones are:"I'd like to make a living from my art.
Or, at least, make some money from it to buy nice things. At the moment, most of the money I have goes towards rent, keeping my family warm by paying for gas and electric, helping out with petrol, and I have emergency savings for any vets bills we encounter (we've got 3 cats and 2 dogs, really anything could happen!) So, I don't get much income that I can spend on art supplies, clothes, nice things. (aka this is why I can't have nice things ahaha)My job is making me depressed.
I work in retail (collective 'ah's),
I've been working in this place two years and after a load of kerfuffle, my anxiety disorder was worsened and I developed depression. I seeked counselling and managed to improve, but the longer I work there the more I can feel it creeping back. I'm looking for another job, obviously, but wouldn't it be amazing if I could focus 98% of my time on making art for you guys?
I think it would be. Imagine the possibilities. Woah, dude.
There are lots of other reasons, but they will be covered in the milestone goals and the reward tiers. Or, the important ones, anyway. (: Stay tuned, folks.But what happens on Patreon??
Well, my friend, a patron can pledge an amount to pay an artist for their content every month. Each creator sets up rewards for said patron to receive upon pledging certain amounts. This way, creators actually get paid to create and patrons get cool little bonuses for being such lovely and amazing people (even more than just a warm feeling in your soul). More information can be found around the site, but that's the long and short of it, I believe."Check it out here!
