So the other day, I joined Patreon.
For those of you who don’t know, Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy to support creators. I have known about Patreon for a few years and even supported a Youtube channel I love to watch, but was always on the fence about joining it as a creator myself.
Lately, however, I realized the importance of having as many different options as possible.
The COVID-19 crisis has affected us all in different ways. For me, the anxiety it has caused me has made me return to my watercolor practice, which helps me cope with stress.
If you follow me on social media, you know I have been creating a tarot-based affirmations deck with watercolor illustrations. This has always been a dream of mine, and I am using quarantine in my advantage to dedicate more time to this project.
I set up a Patreon to make the logistic aspects of this project a little easier, in order to bring it to fruition sooner. The support gathered will help offset the costs of material and tools necessary for the creation of this deck, as well as printing and other various expenses that may occur.
There are three different tiers of monthly support at the moment: $3.33, $11.11, and $22.22. All come with different perks, including exclusive content, behind-the-scene access, acknowledgments and free copies of my published and upcoming books, and more!
So if you are able to, do consider joining my Patreon. I hope to see you all there!
Many thanks and much love,
PS: If you would rather make a one-time contribution, I have set up a GoFundMe page as well!
