I feel a bit self-conscious posting this here, because I've let this account "slip" a bit. I'm not nearly as active on DA as I used to be, mostly because other things have chewed up a lot of time.
Even so, I do have this latent desire to carve out some more "visual art" space in my life.
When it all comes down to it, whenever I've done something that I felt was worthwhile, what it all came down to was helping other people create their own art. The whole "commercial success" thing - prints, commissions, etc - has never gone my way. So, instead of pursuing that route some more, I figured I'd take a stab at the "patronage" model. It's only fair to say that I've lumped everything that I do into one campaign, so supporting me means supporting material that's about the musical arts as well as the visual ones. Maybe the tolerating of that is a lot to ask for, or maybe it isn't.
I don't know.
In any case, if you have any interest in supporting my quest to "make it economically viable to create free resources for people," then my campaign is here: www.patreon.com/danielmaland
