Support my Art on Patreon

I’m officially launching a Patreon page and I would love it if you could all head over there and check it out.

What is Patreon?

It’s like Kickstarter but instead of raising a bunch of money for one big project, Patreon allows fans to help support the creators they love by throwing in small amounts like $1 or $2 per project or per month. Giving them a chance to work on the Art you love and not worry about where their next paycheck will come from. Ultimately Improving the quantity and quality of the work they create.

What do you get?
My goal is to give you as much "behind the scenes" and New Art as I can Depending on your giving tier.
For your contributions, you get  rewards that include things like:

* that amazing and warm feeling for helping an artist concentrate on the work
* involvement in the creative decisions (what Character you want to see painted next)
*Original Paintings
* behind the scenes, work in progress, patron-only access
* Q&A with the artist
* signed prints
*and Much more... 

What’s it for?
It’s to help continue doing what i love and get back to painting Large pieces. I have a new series in development that i would love to give my full attention to.  This is your way of showing your support and getting rewards in return. 

Unlike Kickstarter, this is an ongoing system so you can join in and opt out at any time. I hope you consider becoming a patron and helping me create my next series of paintings.

Thank you 

Abril Andrade Griffith
