Welcome supporters, friends, and casual readers to the Graphic Art Quest Logbook!
This is my first entry, so I wanted to take a moment to explain what this site is and why I’m doing it.
What Is Graphic Art Quest?
This site is my hub to share my journeys, adventures, and art with you. I have three goals here:
- Explore interesting places and events
- Share that with the world with visual arts
- Help others do the same
I’ve been to a lot of places throughout the years, and I’ve seen things I probably wouldn’t have believed if I hadn’t been there myself.
What I Plan to Address in the Learning Section
Here I go over tools, techniques, and procedures to create digital art and animation. This includes more than just tutorials, though. I also analyze different tips and tricks, and I highlight examples in other work to help you learn and recognize them better.
By no means am I an art expert on tools like Blender. I’m on a learning journey, too. My background was in engineering and the Navy. But I’m a huge fan of education and I have a teaching spirit.
More importantly, though, I know how to learn, I know how to ask questions, and I know how to find the right people to ask.
I wouldn’t be satisfied just keeping all my learning adventures to myself.
What I Plan to Address in the Logbook
The articles in the learning section will always be free. But, every Logbook entry after this one will be private and individually unlockable.
Within the Logbook, you’ll get insider looks into
- Where I’m going
- What I’m planning
- What I’m working on right now
This is the premium behind-the-scenes look, and you can be part of the community. As time goes on, I’ll use this space to ask for your feedback, poll you for information, and let you help direct some of my future adventures.
How You Can Support
There are a few ways you can show your support. In order from the least investment of time and money to the most:
1) Share With Friends
If you watch one of my videos, read an article you found interesting, or learned something you think can help one of your friends, share it with them!
My biggest goal right now is to get people to see the content. I have many adventures to share and entertaining stories to tell.
You wouldn’t really keep all that joy to yourself, would you?
2) Subscribe to the YouTube Channel
Subscribing to the Graphic Art Quest YouTube Channel costs you nothing, and you get notified as soon as I come out with more content.
Also, when you subscribe you help other people find the channel and learn as well.
3) Create a Free Account
If you haven’t already, creating a basic account is free!
Doing so allows you to post comments and ask questions on all the articles without having to reenter your name and email every time.
Eventually, I will have a store set up. Your account will keep all your information secure while also conveniently tracking and providing access again (not that you would ever lose a digital file, right?) to previously purchased digital assets.
4) Buy Logbook Unlocks
If you like the content you see and you want to read more of the posts I make in the Logbook, consider buying some Logbook Unlocks.
This is a low-risk and low-barrier entry to reading these premium access posts. Dip your toes in the water a bit. No long-term commitment.
You get to keep your access to the Logbook entry forever.
If you really like everything I’m doing and want to show your support to keep financing the operations, consider becoming a subscribing patron.
This will give you unlimited access to the Logbook. As I expand my operations, I intend to offer physical and digital products for sale. When I do, rest assured that loyal supporters will get a discount.
Why not use Patreon? Because I have my own site, and I didn’t want to. Besides, becoming a patron directly cuts out a middleman and puts more of your subscription money back into the art and adventures.
The Graphic Art Quest Logbook is just one of my first steps.
Follow along with me as I go create adventure and discover art!
