A Leap of Faith


I have a brief but exciting update: On Friday 15th April I handed in my resignation at my place of work.  This means that from September I will be able to dedicate myself fully to the production of the best painting tutorials I can.

We’ve not yet hit the required milestone in Patreon but I’m confident we’ll be near enough by September for me to make this transition.  Also, notifying my workplace now causes the least disruption and gives them a better chance at recruiting a strong replacement for my position.

Thank you to all of my supporters! Thanks to you I will soon be living a new and creative life and I will be spreading a lot more painting joy for everyone 🙂

Happy Painting!

    I really hope that your leap of faith has landed on firm ground!
    Admiring your decision to dedicate your life to what you like to do while taking a huge risk made me become a Patreon backer and i am really excited to help you producing these amazing tutorials.

    Keep it up!

    You have an amazing talent which I find fun just trying to emulate. Very few bealive in them selves enough to put it all out there and take a chance. Keep doing what your doing!

    Hello Sorastro – jumping on to this thread six years later. Your work is fantastic and I’m glad that you made the leap. Is the Patreon still active? Would love to support you.
