ART: Songsters

Avian Minstrels. We’ve worked up a little surprise for Christmas, setting the copperplate shopping list from Hemmed in Silver to music. But because I’m shy, it’s a Patreon Exclusive. (More about becoming a patron here >> ). Meanwhile, you can enjoy the companion artwork. Here are Pennythwaite and Thrussel, who are surely more tuneful than Mr. Right and I. (But we had fun with our little ditty.) ::twinkle::

“Songsters” | art by FoxOfTwilight


So … I was linked to Kimiko and the Accidental Proposal fanart earlier today (go see!) which somehow led to my setting up a Patreon account. How else was I supposed to like & comment, y’know? But the upshot is … I now have a Patreon account. Looks to me like most people use it to reward their supporters with exclusive content. Which is a little brain-breaky for someone who’s used to luring in followers with free content.

But lets play around with some ideas here.

  • Do you have a Patreon account? What do you use it for?
  • Are you a patron on Patreon? Why did you become a supporter?
  • Aside from bribing me to finish my fanfics, how might I put Patreon to use?
  • What kind of “exclusive content” would make this worth my time & your money?

I mean … I can just keep doing what I’m doing, and you support me plenty by buying, reading, rating, reviewing, and recommending my original stories. #IfItAintBroke #BeFree

Oh, hey, maybe I should just support artists like Aviva who are kind enough to create art of my characters. #WouldntComplain #BringItOn

What do you think I should do?
