I’m on Patreon

support artgyrl on patreon

I’ve started an account on the site Patreon. It’s a lot like Kickstarter, but instead of obtaining funding for one big project, an artist can get support for smaller projects on a monthly basis. You can set a limit to how much you donate, but there are various rewards I’ve set up depending on how much you give. (The CEO of Patreon is Jack Conte, one half of the musical duo Pomplamoose, which makes it even more awesome.)

I have quite a few projects in the works, so it would be great to get financial support to help with the expenses. And you’re not getting something for nothing. I have a variety of rewards depending on how much you donate. So…win/win. :)

This time of year is the slow season at my job, so I think it’s an ideal time to get all these projects in the works. I will be sharing more info (sketches mostly) regarding my comic project. I’m planning on posting it free for you guys to read, eventually compiling it into book form, if all goes well.

Thanks you for the support. I hope you find something you’d like to contribute toward.

In other news, I’m taking my photography more seriously. I’m available for bookings this fall. [Sharon Samples Photography]

Two posts in a month, y’all. Progress.

I began following this blog a few months back to get ideas on fashion for characters, since I’m utterly uninspired in that regard. (via The Satorialist)

so this is what all the kids are raving about: iPhone 4

photo captured by Instagram. Late last month I finally purchase a new phone. I chose to get the iPhone 4 16GB, since it seemed like a pretty good bargain, and I had been due to upgrade my phone plan for … Continue reading
