Support me on Patreon to to help me continue putting out the reviews. Patreon is a monthly crowd-funding campaign. You can support me by pledging a certain dollar amount per month. I appreciate any amount.
What do I do with the money? They are used to pay guest artists who wrote many of the art product reviews. It's better to get experts in their field to write those reviews than me who's going to take eons.
Another way to support me is to get my 139-page Hanoi Travelogue e-book.
I'm currently working, slowly, on my next PDF e-book for my Hong Kong trip three weeks ago.
