Okay so in July I launched a Patreon page and I have already received some questions so I thought I would answer these here.
What is Patreon?
For you, "Patreon is a way to join your favourite creator's community and pay them for making the stuff you love. Instead of literally throwing money at your screen (trust us, that doesn’t work), you can now pay a few bucks per month or per post that a creator makes. For example, if you pay $2 per video, and the creator releases 3 videos in February, then your card gets charged a total of $6 that month. This means the creator gets paid regularly (every time she releases something new), and you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts. That’s right--Imagine you, in a long frilly white wig, painted on a 10-foot canvas on the wall of a Victorian mansion. And imagine your favorite creators making a living doing what they do best… because of you".
Why did you join?
Basically the main motivation was a simple way to deliver online tutorials for those that asked but I also wanted to create a way to connect with my community. Maybe it will only be online, maybe I will hit my goals and be able to offer workshops near you, not to mention bigger and better artwork.
So I'm just giving you money?
No. I want this to be a mutually beneficial deal. I have been getting a few emails every week for over a year now asking for online tutorials. Many of you don't have the ability for one reason or another to travel to a workshop. So by subscribing to Patreon you can access content every single month.
How long do I have to sign up for?
There's no rules here. One month, or forever. It's up to you but I hope the content is so great you stick around.
Okay so what do I get exactly?
That depends on the subscription level you sign up for. There are levels from $1 to $1000. It just depends on what you want to get out of it. You can check out my goals on the page to see where I want to take this.
I want to take part but I can't afford it or Im not interested in learning how to do what you do.
No worries! Subscription starts from just $1 and I appreciate every little gesture. You are not required to take part in the tutorials. Maybe you just want to take advantage of a one on one conversation. Maybe you don't want anything. Thats okay!
