NOW ON PATREON! by herms85
NOW ON PATREON!
www.patreon.com/user?u=3537523

Hey guys! I'm really excited to say that I have jumped aboard the Patreon train. I've been thinking about starting one for awhile as a means of building up some additional funds for some eventually necessary work-related expenses - PLUS, it's an awesome way of delivering content on a more regular basis! I'm also offering an original art commission tier - I haven't offered drawing commissions online in years, so if you've ever wanted something this is the best way to get it! Here's the pitch:

Howdy! My name is Matt Herms and I’m a professional artist and comic book colorist. I’ve been a freelance artist for just over a decade now – coloring, penciling, T-Shirt design, video game graphics, and more! You may have seen my stuff before, coloring comic books like Sonic the Hedgehog, Mega Man, or the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! Or you might have seen me around on DeviantARTTwitter, or may even know me from way, WAY back in my webcomic days!

These days I work pretty exclusively as a comic book colorist. It’s a lot of work and a pretty rigorous schedule, but the books are awesome and I’m fortunate to work with some incredibly talented writers and artists to produce kick-ass comics month after month!

But I’d love to be able to do a bit more. And hopefully I can with your help!

Why I’m on Patreon…
So, as a freelancer with a family to support, investing in my business tends to be on an “as needed” basis. For example, I work with some old equipment – my Wacom Intuos would be going into Junior High now, it’s THAT old! And while I strongly profess that you don’t need the shiniest or newest tools to create quality work, my aging rig definitely cannot support more strenuous endeavors like streaming or recording my coloring process.

My goal here on Patreon – what you guys will be generously helping me accomplish – is to put a bit more money back into my business on a more regular basis: to upgrade some equipment, to fund making it out to a couple more conventions per year, and free up a bit more time in my schedule to work on some of my own projects.

With your help, I can do more. Draw more. Color more. You guys will be helping me continue to do what I do, and do a little more on top of that!

By supporting me on Patreon for just $1 (Or more!) per month, you get:
  • Access to the Patreon feed: a guaranteed minimum of weekly content like sneak peeks at upcoming projects or prints, sketches, tutorials, and behind-the-scenes blog posts.
  • Free digital versions of ALL my sketchbooks!
  • Early access to some content, like new videos of my coloring.
  • Exclusive Patron-Only streams!
  • Giveaways! Like books, prints, or original art!


Patreon also allows us to interact directly! We can chat about comics and games, you can suggest drawings or ask questions, and more! This is a really awesome platform - you can donate as much as you want! If you feel the content here is worth more than $1 and you want to pledge more, that's awesome and I sincerely appreciate it!

I also have an Original Art Commission tier! I don't take many commissions outside of conventions, so if you'd like to get some original art by me - this is your chance! Pieces are full Copic Marker color, illustrated on 6x9 Bristol board - just like the commissions I do at cons! Shipping within the US is included, and shipping is available internationally for just $5 more. 

Thank you guys so much! Your support has made a world of difference these last ten years, and I am so grateful that I get to do what I do in large part because of you!

Thanks again to the guys at Find the Computer Room for having me on!

I am also slowly but surely typing out answers to whatever questions were asked that we didn't get to on the show. So no worries!
