They are all illustrations for ghost stories. The one above is The Treasure of Abbot Thomas by M.R. James.

The originals are all for sale if you click through to my art site.

Patreon raffle

Jan 25, 2015 in My art and illustration

I just added a new reward on Patreon!

Once a month I will hold a raffle where one patron gets to commission a simple sketch of anything they want (within reason). The sketch will be posted exclusively on my Patreon blog and the winning patron will also receive a high res scan for personal use.

All patrons are entered into the raffle. You get one ticket for every dollar pledged, so if you pledge $5 you have five chances to win each month.

Support my art on Patreon

I’ve just joined Patreon, a site where you can pledge money to support all kinds of creators. I’m hoping it will enable me to spend more time and money on my art, make bigger projects, and help me keep doing art as my main occupation for as long as possible.

If you’d like to help me out a bit, and get some rewards in return, check it out! Pledges start at $1 a month and you get access to a special feed, which I’ll try to update at least once a week, with various exclusive material that I won’t post anywhere else. If you have any ideas for other rewards, let me know!
