I have a couple questions: have you ever looked at my work and said “I’m not an archer, but I love what you make” or, do you love history, research and someone that cares about making things the right way?
If so, then this post is for you.
I like to think I make pretty stuff, or at the least try to. But what a lot of folks don’t know, is that I quit a terrible corporate recruiting job to do the thing I love. I’ve had moments where I look back and question what I’m doing. I think I should go do it again, to afford a different kind of life – but I always come back to the art. I love creating, building things that people want to show off and love forever.
True factoid: this is my sole source of income; I have my shop online, and I vend at various faires – and that’s it. It’s not easy, I rely on commissions, good seasons and a lot of crazy factors that are outside of my control.
It’s not a cheap pursuit. I got lucky with my recent trips, but came away with a lot of great inspiration and information. I’m already building new products based on those – it’s an exciting time.
But I need your help.
If you love art, or want to support your favorite artists – Patreon is a great platform; everything you give goes directly into new projects, materials and helping me keep this crazy dream going a little longer.
Many thanks, and I couldn’t have gotten here without you!
