Support for an artist can take on many forms. Give them a hug. Buy them a drink. Send them a nice email, give them a steady paycheck, buy a print or a book. In the past I have successfully funded two projects with crowdfund support via Emphas.is  in order to engage a wider audience in my projects and have helped (in my own small way) to support a number of artistic projects on Kickstarter, Emphas.is and other platforms. Here are some of the recent projects I have backed.
