I'm a disabled artist and writer living below poverty and trying to do something about. I can really use your help.
I have a fundraiser for art supplies, clothes, household items, and so on, and there's only five days left. This is about helping me become self-sufficient, helping me live a better life, and helping me to be able to provide more or my family. This is, bluntly, about changing my world and helping me get out of poverty on my own skills and talents.
I have a successful Kickstarter campaign for a comic book I'm trying to make, but those funds are strictly for paying the production costs and shipping of rewards. This is a general plea to improve my life and my art.
Here's some info about the fundraiser and about me:
Larime Taylor is a disabled mouth artist living in California. Life on $750 a month from Social Security isn’t easy, so he supplements his income with his art. All proceeds from his art help to support Larime and his disabled artist wife, Danielle.Please consider making a pledge - great things are starting to happen in my life, and I'm so close to seeing daylight again after a long time in a very dark place.
Larime draws with his mouth on a Wacom Cintiq tablet generously provided by Wacom. All artwork is digital – there are no ‘original’ or ‘hardcopy’ versions – and finished art is provided in hi-res, print-ready .TIF format.
All pledges will go towards the purchase of things Larime needs to better his life and improve his art. Stylus pens for his Wacom tablet, more RAM for his computer, a better video card, stock photos for referencing - it's all related to helping him be a successful artist and get off of Social Security.
Anything over his art needs will go to towards buying clothing and household items Larime desperately needs for his family as they live below the poverty line.
Perks will be art, all drawn by Larime.
