It’s 2018! What’s the Plan?

Jan 4, 2018 | Artist Life, Next Project, Patreon

Well, 2017 was AWESOME, and most of that was because of you, so thank you! I added two books to my collection here, and I have been inundated with ideas and requests for more from you. So – How can I say No? But because I am also an independent art jeweler and I consciously try to make books that are fun to color, I’m not going to start pumping them out all machine-like. That’s not cool or fair to you, the colorist. I also listen to your feedback, because it’s just me self-publishing over here, working on art in the early mornings and late nights when everyone else is asleep. As cool as it would be to have a publisher backing me, I know it would really restrict what I can and can’t draw, and I hear the deadlines are brutal.

So, you’ll probably get two more books from me this year, maybe three if I can make the next bit of art-related insanity work. What that? Well, I’m going to set up a Patreon this afternoon! Yep, THIS AFTERNOON.

I’m still trying to navigate the details and work out proper levels and rewards and all that stuff, but I should have it looking presentable by the weekend, at which point I’m going to scream it from the hilltops. I apologize in advance for the screaming. I’m going to cross the streams and combine my 2D art with my jewelry work on there, so if you like my jewelry, awesome! If not, don’t worry – There will be plenty for you, including PDF downloads you can color and even some tutorials if you want to give drawing a try. I’m told that mixing it up could be disasterous, but my jewelry often influences my drawings and vice-versa. I don’t see any reason to split things in half.

This evening, if you want to hunt around Patreon and search for me, you can probably just use my name. I won’t have much up, but I’ll be there. If you want to become a Patron and you have a good idea for it, please let me know in the comments! I have very few ideas at the moment, and more are definitely welcome!

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a great 2018! ^_^
