Who all out there has a Patreon?
Hey all! I thought it would be cool to see who all on here have Patreons going! To gather them all here for people to see who they can support if the want. Put your link and a short description!
I'll start off. Mine is Patreon.com/ransomcomic
I just started a small illustration club there. A place for tips, challenges, and artists resources. All working on my comic there!
Look forward to seeing what y'all got!

@RajSolankiArt I don't have one yet but had started to look into it since I have a larger Instagram following. What is your experience like? Would you mind saying how many patrons do you have? Do you struggle to find interesting content every month?
@carlianne would love to share! Right now I have 15 patrons. I’ve had it for about 4 months now.
I’ve struggled growing the Patreon after those initial 15 people joined. Patreon isn’t meant to be a place where people discover you, it’s a place where you bring your existing audience. So in that regards I’m not surprised I haven’t grown much.
I’m terms of content, initially I had it so that it would solely be content related to a webcomic I am working on. That made it more difficult to consistently have content. This week I decided to change the tiers a little to make it about my art in general. So I’m hoping that helps me be consistent on it.
Overall I’m a fan of Patreon, I started because I got laid off as the pandemic hit, so any money was fine by me. I say it’s worth getting started even if you don’t have a huge fan base because you can always get friends and family to hop on board first!
Let me know if you have any other questions!

I have a Patreon too, for some years now. I use it to share wips, sneak peeks, exclusive news and behind the scenes pics. It has grown steadily over the years, but I should really invest more time into marketing my page though!

I have a patreon for my YouTube channel where I make a bunch of animated or just insanely edited comedy videos.
Heres my channel: https://www.youtube.com/FrostDrive
Do patrons just for illustrators actually work? I've just never seen a big one before.
@Frost-Drive I've seen a few work, Ty Carter has one that does really well (but he's really well known). However, I think it works well to center it around a project. Brad Guigar and Dave Kellett are two good examples of this. Most of it for me will still be around a comic.
