Patreon Project Kit for Artists

I've been on Patreon now for about a year since the site went live. I've tried a lot of different experiments in that time and have built a small, but dedicated following via this community-driven site.  I'm a firm believer that crowd-funding is the wave of the future and the core building block of a growing breed of artist-entrepreneurs.
I thought I'd share that spirit of giving by sharing the structure, templates, and other resources that keep my Patreon ticking!  I hope it helps other artists out there considering promoting their projects via this site.  Let's make a Patreon!

PROS and CONS: Etsy vs. Storenvy

A few years back, I wrote a comparison of eBay vs Etsy and the pros and cons of both (plus a review of eBay's shop format).  Now, the marketplace has another contender that's definitely worth noting for independent artists - Storenvy.  Time to re-evaluate! 
Note: I've left eBay off this list because I don't use it actively anymore and never found it very effective for me as an artist beyond occasionally auctioning off originals using the free monthly auction style listings.  It also hasn't changed much since my last review, except for allowing a higher amount of free auction style listings per month for sellers.

It's been so quiet around this account, but I promise I am still alive!  My life has been completely absorbed in the art side of things while I've been wrapping up my birthstone art project.  For those who missed my prior posts about it, this project is a combination of all of my passions, folklore, fashion, and the fantastical.


Just this past month, I've finally finished them all!  I'm excited to move forward into the self-publication phase to get this art out into the world, beginning with a coloring book I'm funding this month via Kickstarter!



But I couldn't have done it without the hard work of many of my favorite stock artists here!  Many of the paintings from this series drew on part or all of a pose from dA stock artists for inspiration.  Enjoy a feature collecting some of the paintings from the Ladies of the Months series and their stock inspiration!
