Patreon is like a kickstarter, but instead of being for a single project, it is for ongoing creativity.  It is a place where artists (all kinds of artists) can create just like they already are, but, also talk to their fans that want to be a patron of the arts. 
Patreon allows you, the fans, to support the artists that create the art you love by making regular donations (You get to choose the amount).  Artists select whether a post is free or paid.  And patrons can select a maximum monthly amount, so they don't have to worry about a creator posting a bazillion paid creations in a week.  You can find my Patreon page at:
