Support my art on Patreon

Jan 18, 2015 in My art and illustration


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!


Lurex jumpsuit

Some photos of my amazing lurex jumpsuit from The Original Bad Girl.

It’s totally vintage Frederick’s of Hollywood catalogue worthy, so I made a tulle overdress for it inspired by some Frederick’s illustrations. I felt like I should be going to a cocktail party at the Addams family house.

I’m thinking about going on Patreon, but I’m a bit stumped as to what sort of perks to offer my potential patrons. Do you have any suggestions?

What sort of thing would be interesting to you? Discounts, exclusive material, special offers? I’d love to hear any suggestions. If you already support someone on Patreon, what made you want to support them?


Print campaign for Christmas

Dec 9, 2014 in My art and illustration


As a special Christmas treat you can buy prints of pretty much any picture on! The campaign starts today and lasts until December 16.

Orders placed within this time will be shipped on December 18 (which means they probably won’t actually get to you until after Christmas).

All prints are $27 regardless of size. They will be printed very close to their original size, which is listed next to every picture on my site, where you will also find the “buy print” link.

The prints offered on Etsy will continue to be sold there at the same prices as before, and are not part of this offer.

Merry Christmas!
