Bees are coming! I’ve opened a new reward on my Patreon for all you fuzzbutt bee lovers out there. When you sign up to the Fuzzy Bee tier, or tiers with the Patreon-Exclusive bee print added, you’ll get a new 4×6″ Bee print every month! Each month will be a new bee, and the previous ones will be retired. So you can start your own Hive of rainbow goodness! These bee prints will ONLY be available to my Patrons as a special exclusive and thank you for supporting me here on Patreon. You can sign up too! Pledge for a monthly bee or other reward, and Patreon will collect the pledge on the 1st of every month. Then I can send you fun goodies like these little fuzzlers! If you have any questions about Patreon-Exclusive bees or other rewards, email email@example.com
