Long Time ago (around 8 years) I planned to start a project called: PINUPOLOGY.
In its essence the project was designed to bring the Pinup Theme into a "different" level, such as showing that Pinup is much more than just sexy girls showing her nudity in a vulgar way.
Pinup is suppose to bring joy to whoever looks at it.
Some items of the project were:
Tutorials and videos about the theme, especially the way I do my pinups: conception, inspiration, references, sketches, drawings, paintings, etc.
A digital magazine, featuring some cosplays, pinup style, models and also with interesting articles about pinup on some areas: advertising, comics, entertainment, games, education, etc
Exclusive set of themed pinups => pinup's collection
A live stream channel where, regularly, members could have an online meeting to discuss pinup related subjects while, one of the artist would do a painting/drawing session (the sketch, would be suggested to be auctioned and the raised money donate to some institution)
Many things happened and it was not possible to me to dedicate time to this project.
Years went by (in my frustration) without seeing a "light at the end of the tunnel" , but fortunately the chance of getting support from fans, friends, anyone who share the same "passion" and appreciate the pinup's joy, can make this project happens.
And with any donation, any amount of money as low as $0.50 / per week (Fifty Cents per week); it is possible to start it.
For instance, this group has more than 400 members. If everybody could help with $2.00/month, I would be capable of refusing some jobs I have to work in (to increase my income) and I would dedicate more time on producing the contents I want for the project.
As I wrote some time ago in one of my articles:
If you do not have a God Fairy Mother, you can put your faith on God Fairy Friends and Patrons
Anyways....., it is important, not to give up.
I will see some of you as my Patrons and..... let's spread the Joy.
