I would first like to say thank you to all of you who follow my artistic adventures. I appreciate your comments and encouragement. I also enjoy our conversations as we share our common enthusiasm for aviation, space, railroad and military subjects.
Making the kind of art that I do is a time-consuming process. On average it takes me 40-50 hours of dedicated work to complete a digital painting. If I include research and gathering of reference material the time can easily be double that on one piece. Besides actually creating the art there is time spent marketing and also time spent packaging and shipping artwork. It is definitely a full-time job.
I am grateful for the clients whom have purchased artwork from me over the years and for the loyalty and support of those patrons who continue to buy work on a regular basis. As a way of showing my appreciation I will often discount their purchase or offer some other reward such as a free print.
Now there is a new way which makes it possible for me to provide the rewards of appreciation which I do to all my patrons. I would like to extend to you the invitation to become my patron. In doing so you can help support the art I make and get some nice bonuses. Please visit my Patreon page for more information: patreon.com/markkarvon
Thank you for your support.
