The Patreon Trend - Why it doesnt sit well with meLonger discussion journal time.The Patreon Trend - Why it doesnt sit well with me by DanSyron
Bet alot of you have seen it somewhere: your favorite artists have Patreon Pages up, accepting donations, the like? I certainly have. To be frank, it doesnt sit well with me, and while this journal shows my opinions ONLY, it might cause you to think about the reasons behind Patreon and where it might and might not be the most acceptable thing in the universe.
First off: What is Patreon in the first place?
Patreon is an online kickstarter-esque site where people can donate to you and essentially back you and your work for various rewards. It can be used to fund projects that an artist might not be able to tackle on their own dime, such as comic publishing, music production and CD printing cost, you name it. The tool itself is quite powerful and has been able to help a few friends I have, such as :iconimagni: being able to work on publishing a comic and actually giving a quality product to people willing to back
War Zone againWeeelllll if you haven't followed the news, shit is going DOWN in Gaza again between us and the Hamas and only some minutes ago they announced on the TV that the Ground Offensive went into Gaza.War Zone again by vaporotem
In the past two weeks we have had endless alarms and rockets falling around (or getting destroyed thanks to the Iron Dome) and things just went awful in Gaza...
Ain't gonna get too political in here like last time (you can just follow my Tumblr and see how it goes) but lets just say:
Fuck the Hamas and their fucked up brains~
Other than that and DURING that, I'm getting ready for our wedding~ Got me the dress and rings and next Thursday we are going to Cyprus to get married (since we are not doing religious wedding) :'D
Hope things will go well there...
All commissions are still open and are in process, no worries! Just sorry for being slow than usual and not commenting much ;-;
I'm just a guy who likes to draw stuff from time to time.|
My fursona is Marwan, that little green critter seen prominently in my gallery. By the way, please don't ask what species he is... Too many people asked him that question, and he hates that. He's just... a critter, an original species of mine.
Giftarts are always appreciated.
Go ahead and thank me for favs and watches. Seriously, I don't care. You're welcome. After all, some people just want to show their appreciation for being loved at all.
