ANNOUNCEMENT: A Girl of Many Fandoms is now on Patreon
Updated: Jun 1
I am proud to announce that I have launched my own Patreon page.
Which I—of course!—encourage you to check it out at your leisure. :)
While this is the start of something new and exciting, unfortunately it also means that there will be changes to what is currently my primary social media outlet: my Facebook page.
Though I will continue to post announcements (convention dates, new projects, etc.), holiday themed posts and—of course!—newly completed art (albeit watermarked and one week after completion.), I will NO LONGER...
...post the coupons for flash sales at my Redbubble store.
...post NEW web graphics (and other non-art related goodies like personal recs, fandom “reviews”, fan fiction etc.).
As this is a significant and complex change, for both myself and for you, I humbly ask for your patience and understanding as I work out the kinks during a ONE MONTH adjustment period. I would really appreciate it. <3
"What is Patreon?"
Patreon (/ˈpeɪtriɒn/) is a membership platform that provides business tools for creators to run a subscription content service, as well as ways for artists to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or "patrons.
Firstly, I am here for FUNDING ( Why does anyone come here? ). I have problems supporting myself, much less my laborious quest to find carve myself a place in the art industry ( and this world in general ) so any and all help would be deeply appreciated.
All proceeds I raise via this Patreon account will go towards...
the maintenance of my art supplies, such as my computer, my drawing tablet, digital file storage, web hosting and domain name for my website, etc.
compensation for the many MANY hours I spend on other duties required to share my creative works with the world such as administration ( ie. correspondence in person/e-mail/phone/etc, organizing the sale of custom artwork, etc. ), curating ( ie. uploading my works and organizing them to make them accessible ), marketing ( ie. formatting every individual work of writing five times—or more—over in order to cross post the material on different social media sites ), merchandising ( ie. custom formatting each illustration for each product made available via Redbubble ), etc.
Secondly, I'm here for FEEDBACK. I want to get to meet every one of you. What do you like about my art, what do you think I can do to improve? What themes do you like? What Fandoms do you like? Would you be interested in original work? What does my work say to you (am I getting my message across)?Ideally, I hope to create a community here. A safe space where so everyone can enjoy fiction in all of its forms: film, television, comic books, video games, anime and much much more!

Allow me to thoroughly introduce myself: I am A GIRL OF MANY FANDOMS! ( but you can call me Mistina. )
I DRAW digital art featuring fictional characters or Pop culture icons and I often stylize characters in the 'chibi' art style ( but I try not to limit myself to it ).
I WRITE a variety of works ranging from random and silly personal thoughts, to ( fairly in depth, if I do say so myself ) personal observations of media, to detailed accounts of my adventures at geek conventions, to carefully crafted fan fiction.
I GIF but I also I make other assorted web graphics such as web icons, sequential screen captures, silly edits, transformative music videos, and more.
I SHARE my wealth of geek knowledge and I do my best to do so through positivity ( by recommending media content I enjoy, by writing my ongoing geek dictionary, by writing 'articles' regarding positive events to spread awareness, etc. ).
I SHARE—when I build up the courage—intimate insights to issues witch which I struggle. Both for myself and in the hopes that perhaps my own experiences could help others, maybe even help others avoid making the mistakes I've made.
ALL OF THIS is a ONE woman show!
That's right! I am but a single person with a wide range of interests and creative mediums.
But I can't keep doing this alone.
"Could you please help me continue to entertain you?"
I know that bad joke is bad ( and SUPER dated ) but I would truly appreciate any and all support in my endeavors. <3
