I am a compulsive drawer, I love to have a pencil in my hand and a blank sheet of paper, and watch things appear (on the bus, in my lectures, at 3am when I should be asleep...). I really like to be able to use art to raise awareness of human rights issues, and I love illustrating stories.

Thanks for dropping by!

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 17, 2015, 2:29 PM
I've noticed a lot of people getting a Patreon account lately, and I really like the idea of being able to support someone in their art not just through buying a finished piece or a print, which is often too expensive. I know a lot of people on here are very strapped for cash (a whole website of mostly starving artists in fact!) as am I frequently.

A few lovely people have asked lately how they can best support me with my illustrating and painting, so I've decided to make my own Patreon account: 

www.patreon.com/erinclaireb

Patreon is like an ongoing kickstarter - anyone can support artists they love, and set the amount they are willing to give. The pledges start much lower, and the rewards are ongoing. Every month there will be the opportunity to win prints, sketches or even small paintings from me, and people who pledge in the higher tiers will get their own commissions.

If you can imagine supporting me (for as little as $1 a month) please check out my site and have a look at all the other rewards up for grabs.

Additionally, I would very much like to support other artists on here with their work. I am already supporting Gold-Seven and Katarinea, I heartily suggest you check them out too. If you have a Patreon and I'm watching you (or you think I should be!) please comment below with a link to it. 

ps. if you have any ideas or feedback, eg. other rewards you would like to see available, I would love to hear it as I am very new to all of this!

I don't know if I already told you that when I started watching, but I really love your gallery and your works! :love: Each one makes me wonder about the characters' stories. It looks like they came out of a fairy tale! I love them so much! :deviation:
And, I almost forgot, I really really like your dangerous creatures from folklore: both the paintings and their stories! Your Each Uisge made me want to draw one of my own! I can't wait to see more of them! :aww:

Hi Cecy, thankyou so much for such a lovely message, I was really really touched to get it! I'm so glad that my paintings inspire you (please let me know if you do an Each Uisge, I would love to see your version of it!) and especially glad that they make you wonder about the character's stories (the goal of all illustrators haha). Thankyou so much :hug:

Hi Erin-Claire!
Thank you very much for your kind reply! I was so happy to read it! And a super big "thank you!" for following me on fb too! That was a wonderful surprise for me! :hug:
I promise I'll translate the descriptions of my works at least in English and post them all on DA too, as soon as I have time to do it! ;P For now, thank you again for visiting my little blog and fb page! I'm just so happy! :happybounce:
About the Each Uisge I drew my version some days ago and it's still unfinished. Moreover, as I'm posting all my works on my worpress blog twice a week starting from those made in 2001 and the latest that I publushed today are from 2012, it will take some more time before my Each Uisge is published. But I promise that when it is online, I'll immediately tell you (or, if you want, you can follow the blog too to receive an e-mail when new drawings are online)!
Again, thank you for everything! :aww:

Hi Erin, my apology for getting back to you late, but I really appreciate kind words you gave! You are very generous with your compliments :D.

I'm glad that you found my works on women warriors to be to your liking, but the your works on the other hand, humbled me. If drawing can speak, it would be your works, because the softness of it simply makes it pleasant to see :). Keep doing the awesome job and I hope that my future works wont disappoint!

And yes, it's good to meet fellow deviants from Oz :D

I'm a big fan of this illustrative story-book style. Your colours, compositions and subject matter take one on a journey, and are perfect examples of escapism. Just what the doctor orders on a daily basis, at least for me ;). Keep up the wonderful work! :+devwatch:
