He was drawing aged 5 and took it from a hobby to a profession. Australian Patrick Brown’s Deviant Art page says “Fan art is my thing”. Goodness, is he right! His illustrations are impressive. Patrick notes how he takes inspiration from many things and by being a fan he has a reason to draw, improve and work on better things.
Highly encourage popping over to Patrick’s Patreon page too. He’s 141 patrons, at the time of writing, who help enable Patrick to draw and share his work. There’s a teaser gallery below.
