My soul comes from better worlds, and I have an incurable homesickness of the stars.

spring night — one hour worth
a thousand gold coins;
clear scent of flowers,
shadowy moon.
songs and flutes upstairs — threads of sound;
in the garden, a swing,
where night is deep and still.

Philosophy is not the reflection of a pre-existing truth, but, like art, the act of bringing truth into being. […] True philosophy consists in relearning to look at the world, and in this sense a historical account can give meaning to the world quite as ‘deeply’ as a philosophical treatise. We take our fate in our hands, we become responsible for our history through reflection, but equally by a decision on which we stake our life, and in both cases what is involved is a violent act which is validated by being preformed.

I love
to lose myself for a while.

I make code. I make games. I make art. I’m not making much money, yet! But you can change that!

I’m a bit of a starving artist. I’m a lot better off than most, and if you don’t want to help me with this little campaign, that’s totally cool. I can even point you in the direction of other artists and causes that could really use your help. But I am not on steady ground, financially, and you could help me big time.


A few times a month, I’ll release content. This content will probably be artwork like the dragon above, interactive poetry games, twine projects, and zines, both on and offline. I will make sure that what I release to Patreon is of very high quality. 

Every time I release something, my “patrons” send me a paypal donation, anything between 1-100$. In case I’m very prolific one month, you can cancel or modify the donations at any time, and you can also set a limit, so that if you pledge 1$, and you cap the donations at 5$ a month, if I create more than 5 big, high quality projects a month, you don’t have to may more than what you can.


For the moment, I have 5 STEAM keys for the video game Papo Y Yo available that I’m giving to persons pledging more than 1 $. Seriously.

If you pledge more than 3 $, I will send you all new small zines in the mail for free!

If you pledge to my Patreon, you will also get access to a coupon that gives you a discount between 10% and 50% at my Etsy. 

If you pledge more than 2$, you get a New Years card from me! 

Anyways, thanks for paying attention, and thanks for being excellent! Do reblog if you can. Back to your regularly scheduled excellence!
