First off I want to say thank you to everyone who helped me out with the medication situation. I'm still in limbo on that, waiting to see if I can get a cheaper inhaler first, if not then with my paycheck I get this weekend once Rent is paid I'll be picking up the $190 one.
I feel a little fluster about it since I had to spend some of the money I raised to get Dan some anxiety meds today, so I have less than what I need for my things. So with that said...
I have set up a Patreon
to help raise money per month to hep Dan and I pay our bills and to help support my move to full-time freelance. I would love to get out of House of Pizza and my endless cycle of feeling like I'm over working myself for next to nothing pay. I rather be doing something I love and producing more artwork for you all to enjoy verses feeling exhausted and stressed 24/7.
With the money I'd raise on Patreon I would make more products for both my Shops and Youtube Channel. I could create personal projects and actually start producing my comic "The Rotted Root". I would love to push to that and actually get to do what I've dreamed of doing. All the information is on the Patreon page and each tier of donations has rewards!
Next, I have an online shop over on RedBubble
. I have a bunch of things posted over there, a mix of Fandom related things, Youtube related arts, and a few personal. I am looking to do a Dragon piece to be made into a blanket and pants, it'll be a pattered piece but I need to work out time to make this piece.
Along with this I hope to be able to post some of my "Gentle Bear" and "Killer Rabbit" designs, two clothing companies that are part of my comic "The Rotted Root".
This shop helps me out here and there, I gets sales every once and a while and they do add up in the end, but as of late it's been a little quiet and I hope to put more up on it and to keep getting nice things out to you all.
Lastly I'd like to plug my YouTube channel RottingRootsArts
. I currently just do Speed Paint videos, I'd love to be able to do more such as tutorial videos. I am debating on doing my "Wreck this Journal" and "AntiJournal" videos on this channel, along with "Artist Opinions" where I talk about supplies I use and if I would recommend them or not. I just, again with my day job and very limited to what I can do and have only been able to get a video per month.
I would love to make it two a month, hence the Patreon being opened.
I post updates here mostly, such as WIP sketches of projects, when a new video will be uploaded, even if I'm going to livestream. I feel once I have enough followers and the extra ability to do so I can do Q&A for youtube videos and just have a lot more fun with my friends.
Thank you all for taking the time to look at this journal, I hope you spread the word about my pages and maybe consider helping and supporting me outside of DA as well.
