Obsolete World Is Now On Patreon!


Hello! I am pleased to announce that I now have a page on Patreon! Patreon is a crowdfunding platform that enables fans (or patrons) to pay and support artists for their work. For producers of videos, art, music, podcasts and more, Patreon is a way for creators to earn extra money and allows fans to contribute to their favorite artist’s platform. Patreon allows creators to set up monthly, subscription-style payment tiers, with different pledges for different levels of content or for various perks. For example, a patron could subscribe at various levels from $1-$100 per month and receive early access to the creator’s content, exclusive art prints, t-shirts, original artwork and more. In return, with financial assistance from kind people such as yourself, I would be able to cover the cost of my art supplies and potentially health care too. I would have more time to create a larger body of work, publish books and hopefully revisit animation, which has always been of great interest to me. With social media algorithms making it increasingly more challenging for emerging artists to share their work with the world, Patreon seems like a really great option. 


You can check out some of my art as well as a few snippets from my life and creative space in the video above. If you enjoy viewing my work on the internet or if you just simply like what I do and would like to see more of it in the world, please consider subscribing here: https://www.patreon.com/obsoleteworld
Thanks for taking a look! I really appreciate your support of my art.

Fistfuls of Sky

Feeling the weight of the world recently, I set out to create a piece that would clear my mind of the constant howl and clatter that worms its way into my everyday activities. There is a slight, silly awkwardness to this monster of generous proportions standing alongside the small silhouette of a human figure. I find a calm, comfortable sadness in the pairing as well. Two unlikely travelers pausing to look skyward as a beautiful world of gold, rust and green unfolds before them in the warm glow of a late afternoon. A peaceful breeze gently pushing the world aside. 
Even if only for a moment.

This original piece is now available to purchase through WOWxWOW Gallery. It is a part of the Fistfuls Of Sky group exhibition which opens this evening and will be on view
through the 28th of June at the following link:
