Patreon: -- (get crazy mail and arty letters delivered right to your mailbox)
Greetings Friends and Fiends!

I have a few anouncements I'd like to make about Patreon and Etsy! :woohoo:

First of all, I have uploaded the remaining works of art I did for the Monster Drawing Rally to my Etsy Page.

The Monster Drawing Rally was hosted by The Sun King Brewery in  Indianapolis, in collaboration with Newfields, the Indianapolis Museum of Art! 

They were all created with speed, to see how many could get done in an hour. (Although we could bring 5 works in - I created these the same way, so I technically made 11 works in 2 hours!) 5 sold at the event, and there are 6 left!


I have simplified my patreon to currently include a limited offering of Crazymail mystery letters and Crazypostcard rewards!
What is patreon?
Patreon is a way to support your favorite creators by pledging a monthly payment as either an exchange for an offered reward tier or as a donation. I currently offer physical rewards such as Crazymail and Postcards, but I also offer non-physical rewards in the form of sneak peeks, a first look at special offers when possible, as well as a first look at some new work and videos. I also offer a permament 10% discount code for my Etsy Shop, no matter how much you pledge. My charges happen on the first of the month and you are free to cancel anytime. If you are interested in becoming a patreon patron, click on the link below!

thanx for watching me:devilish:
im an art student in the university of the philippines, been there for 4 beautiful years...currently doin works for a show on june, i work with pure emotions, accidents and automatism that are based from my fondness of surrealism,mainly dali and miro. i work with the unconscious and sublime. i dwell on individualism and personality, thats why i love painting faces. and a big part of my aesthetics is bringing out something beautiful from things that are ugly. its good to get a intellectual comment from time to time, some people here just comment to get attention...too sad. ope to hear more from you...:devilish:

Yes, thank you for responding! I am also interested in individualism and personality. Faces and bodies have always been a large interest. When I have the time, I plan on undertaking a project of doing odd portraits - bringing out odd traits and personality, their soul, and perhaps a bit of fantasy. Dali and Miro are great artists. Dali was terrified of grasshoppers. ;) (I love art history tid-bits.)
My favorite artists (at least currently) Are Gustave Moreau and Richard Dadd. Of course, I have a whole giant LIST of artists I like, but hey there's only so much room in the reply.
It is a lot harder to be motivated outside of school, which is why I am going to get my masters soon. Hopefully after that, I will have enough personal drive to work on larger pieces more completely.
I have a link somewhere to my website that has my other work, just for fun, but incase it isnt on deviant somewhere, Ill just put it here for reference, since I have chosen to put only new things on deviant. [link]
there is a link to a 'gallery' there too - which has the most up to date stuff.

I look foreward to seeing more of your art!
