You probably know this deviantARTist writing to you through one of his projects. I have started 2014 with a big challenge, making 365 doodle/drawings, one every single day. And I've managed it
! You can have access to all of them at my Deviantart gallery
or Instagram account
And right now I'm on another challenge. The Palette Project
, a seven-month long color challenge, is a series where I create new illustrations each month based around a central color.
Hello therrre, this is Picolo and his cat, whose name is unknown.
All this you already know about me. What some of you don't know is that I'm a Graphic Designer student who recently quit his job at a hostel to start a Freelance Illustrator career. As far as it goes, the big commissioned works eat the time dedicated to create the artworks you enjoy to see.
In light of this, I've decided to create a Patreon account. It was supposed to be launched months ago but I confess I was too scared to ask for this kind of support from you. My head was full of stuff like:
- " but Picolo you aren't half as good as [insert amazing artist that has a patreon]"
I won't say I simply got over all of this but an honest talk with a friend (who's an Amanda Palmer's fan btw) made me change my mind about Patreon.
What Patreon means?
– Tip me I'm an artsy cat
Patreon is a website where you can fund your favorite artists or musicians. In other words Patreon will be my tip jar. You can visit me there
and choose which amount you want to tip. For each different amount I'll have a different reward for you.
What Patreon doesn't mean...
If you're broke or simply don't/can't donate that's totally fine!
I'll still create the same sort of content, I'll still be the same Picolo as ever. I always uploaded my doodles for free and I always will.
That's why I'm asking for support, not demanding it in any way.
However, if you're able to support me I'll share with you extra content that I wouldn't have the time to create if it wasn't for you.
What's coming after Patreon?
With Patreon I will be able to do stuff you always ask me to do. I plan to publish tutorials of how to draw/paint, anatomy and composition tips, create challenges and of course book compilations of my work (365 Days of Doodles book for example, that would be a dream even for me)
The more support I receive from you the more content I will be able to create (for you) in return. That's my way to say "thank you". ♥
