I have recently heard of a website for artists called Patreon. It is a site where you can earn money monthly with your art. I’ve searched through it a little, and it looks like people really are making money. I think this is great for artists.

“Patrons” pay monthly donations to their artist of choice. Or per piece of artwork. I think this is a wonderful idea. It gives something to both the artist and the patron.

I’ve sold a few paintings through Ebay in the past. I am thinking of starting a Patreon account for my artwork. I would love to make some money from it. I am not a professional artist by any means. But I love when someone enjoys my work.

Have you heard of Patreon? What do you think?

  1. Thanks for the info as I’ve never heard of it and may check it out! These are valuable posts that we share with each other, it’s nice to explore sites that we’ve never heard of. 🙂

  2. Hi! 🙂
    I heard about parteon, i registered there but i dont really uploaded drawings, because i thought nobody would buy my art, but at the same time i registered to Redbubble, and i did upload some of my artwork there and i was so shooked by seeing that people bought my drawings, prints, phone cases with my drawings on it… And oh god, I was super happy, I made a little money and from that, I was able to buy new art supplies, which was super cool! …But now i dont really draw a lot 🙁 So i dont really make money there.
    But you should try Redbubble, if you haven’t tried it. You’ll wont regret it. 🙂
