I've started a Patreon make a few things more self-sustaining, there is absolutely no obligation to join. :)
Hello you can call me Squirmydad and I am the current steward of the Cardboard Warriors kingdom. Many artists start Patreons to raise funds to support their work and to directly engage with their fans, this is not one of those Patreons. This is a Patreon that I am starting so that I can continue to support the work of paper miniature and paper model artists. I run a forum called Cardboard Warriors;
and a website;
The website is chock full of all sorts of free downloads and tutorials and has been added to on a monthly basis since 2008. Most of what is on the site comes from the Forum and all of the great artists who share their work there. Every month there is a different theme that artists can submit their works to called the Forum Hoards, you may have seen them on Instagram. :) Additionally there is an annual competition called the Papercuts Showcase with a variety of categories whose winners are chosen by the community and receive actual cash prizes.
Many community members have approached me and offered to assist with funds for the Forum, the site, and the Showcase, which is why I've started this Patreon. If you would like to support these endeavors and potentially help them grow then do sign up for this Patreon.
How much does all of this cost;
Cardboard Warriors Forum storage= $72.00/year
One Monk site= $354.00/year
Papercuts prizes= $310.00/annual
Total expenses = $736.00/year
What do you get for supporting this Patreon? Satisfaction that you are assisting a community of artists. :) Maybe I can make some Patreon exclusive downloads, but no promises, I'd rather continue contibruting to the publicly available Forum Hoards.
