"Finally got my garage/studio back and now I can finally get to working more!
Trying to paint at my desk in a nook in my living room, has been limiting my production which kind of spun into a work lull and a new kind of depression and anxiety.
Seems strange and might seem kind of whiney but it really put a claustrophobic feeling over me and I guess more specifically my creativity. There's been other major factors that have played into this depression also that I cannot talk about due to other people's request of anonymity so I'm having to hold all of that in, which adds to the claustrophobic and smallness feelings. I will just say cancer, heroin and alcohol SUCK.
I need to get back at it. And considering I just spent a decent chunk of money on some new equipment (printer, materials, etc.) I need your help more than ever to continue pursuing this passion. Thank you to all my patrons and hopefully new patrons to come."
I would love more patrons to help me reach my goals. My patrons win cool free art and stickers and soon will have to opportunity to receive free shirts and other cool stuff. It's easy and we both get something out of it all.

If you are unfamiliar with patreon here's a little bit from their website:
What Is Patreon?
"Patreon is the best way for creators to earn ongoing revenue directly from their fans.
For creators, Patreon is a way to get paid for creating the things you’re alreadycreating (webcomics, videos, songs, whatevs). Fans pay a few bucks per month OR per post you release, and then you get paid every month, or every time you release something new. Learn more about becoming a creator on Patreon HERE.
For patrons, Patreon is a way to join your favorite 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."
