I haven't been around on the blog much lately! Between youtube deadlines, I've been nervously working on my new Patreon page!
If you don't know what Patreon is, it's a reliable website where people can pledge a little money toward their favourite creative people. Creative people do a lot of unpaid labour, especially in the beginning, and sometimes you want to appreciate them in a monetary way, but can't shell out enough for a piece of art, or an online class, or a music album. Patreon lets you commit as little as $1 a month, for as many (or few) months as you want.
In exchange, you receive small rewards for your patronage, so it is very much like a subscription!
On my page, I am motivating myself to do more sketching! My hope is that we can get together as a little private art club - sharing each others' sketches, interacting more... I love posting videos on youtube, but the real rewarding part is the part where I get to meet like-minded people. It's hard to find close, artistic friends!
It's also hard to carve out good time for all of this extra stuff. I would love to be able to do this full-time someday.
Please consider joining us! There will be slow videos, mailings, art prompts and scavenger hunts in the mix!
Hello! I'm Melissa, and here you'll find some behind-the-scenes footage of an artful life. Won't you join me?
