Urgh - Self promotion is hard but I have been encouraged to be bold and shout out:
Five extra reasons to become a Patron (or even just follow me) over at Patreon.com/papertigress:
1/5 Because you deserve to have your day brightened by quirky, colourful and highly detailed illustrations pinging up every few days in your email or Patreon feed.
(Also you really want one of these gorgeous steampunk duck stickers (I hope)).
2/5 Scads of Colouring in Pages - there is a stock of over 25 existing colouring-in pages with enough small details to challenge an adult and engross a meticulous child. You can use them yourself or gift them to any friends who enjoy the colouring.
3/4 For tips and tricks on art. I love to share knowledge. I have started livestreaming. Once its running smoothly I’ll be offering patrons a regular window into my workspace where they can ask questions about technique, process and my subject matter.
4/5 For The Ninth Muse, Sappho - an artfolio childrensbook I have in progress. Starting October am going to finish a page a month to get this beauty completed, collated and available. Patrons get front row seats (the only seats really) on the creative process.
5/5 For the art already created! There are masses of past drawings as well as colouring pages and works in progress instantly available to new patrons upon subscription.
If you've liked my drawings in the past please do give a signal boost on social media. I'm Fabricmagpie on twitter and melanippos on instagram
