Greetings Friends and fans,

Today I am embarking on another step in my artistic journey. For some time I have wanted to have a way to share with everyone in a more meaningful and direct way. I believe that venue has presented itself.

I will be posting images on Patreon from here on out.  It is a site that allows artist and musicians to work with the assistance of crowd funded patrons. They will not be exclusive to Patreon forever, but patreon will get high rez images and the pick of the litter. While I will not stop posting content in other areas, there will be exclusives and bonuses that only patrons will enjoy. If you stop by my profile there you will see what that entails.

I always appreciate your ongoing support in my endeavors. This one in particular will allow me to get back to making videos of process, tutorials, and paintings. I am very excited to be launching it.

Thanks for sticking by me personally, and professionally!

Get em while they are hot, I have a limited amount I can do because I do have freelance work to get done other than these.

Send me a note with your requests. Favorite characters, pinups, whatever you dig.

I will vend unto you sketchbooks, prints, and originals. Try to stop by early though, the print runs were smaller this year as budgets have been cut. See you down there my friends.

Today I logged in to be greeted by a ton of messages and favorites. I was honored by my first Daily deviation! Many thanks and much appreciation go out to those who were responsible as well as my new watchers and all those who favorited my work, both the DD and others. I appreciate the attention and will strive to continue to provide something that is enjoyable to look at and hopefully inspirational. Thank you from the bottom of my ink stained heart.

I recently accidentally deleted a number of notifications. Among them were quite a few new watchers who I was going to personally thank for adding me to their watch list. So, now I must tell you all. Thank you for your watch and the encouragement. I greatly appreciate it and I hope I can continue to entertain and maybe inspire with my art.

Thanks for playing along folks. We have a winner. (two actually) :iconnyausi: took home the free art as well as a person from my FB page. www.facebook.com/pages/Autumn-… To be fair and balanced they must both get something, as they both sent in a screenshot.

Thanks again for your support. I am happy to continue sharing what I do if you stick around and watch. :D

Alrighty folks. I am rapidly appproaching 10 thousand page views, and while that is chump change for some of you deviants, I would say thats a nice number for me. So, as a thank you to the people who are watching and the people who happen to stop by I am going to have a little contest.

This is how it will work. The person that sends me a screenshot of the 10k page viewed of my homepage will get a free small commission. A head sketch or something of the like.

If you happen to be the 10001 person I would take a screenshot anyway, because if the 10k person doesn't know, I will just make it the closest possible screenshot that I get. So, keep an eye on my page views if you want some free art.

Thanks for your support friend. I appreciate your continued watching and commenting. :D
