Highlight: Illustrator Marlowe Lune

Illustrator Marlow Lune likes to build a world around each piece they create. Each of their work features new characters, imagined backstories and a rich, inviting illustrations. After building up a considerable following on their Patreon project the Merry Blackbird Postcard Society–600+ members and counting–Marlowe was looking for a way to keep the postcards personal, while avoiding a handwritten not note on each one.

After building up a considerable following on their Patreon project the Merry Blackbird Postcard Society–600+ members and counting–Marlowe was looking for a way to keep the postcards personal, while avoiding a handwritten not note on each one.

They turned to Plynth to link each card to a bundle of content, just for Patreon subscribers. A monthly note, a special playlist and a timelapse video of the piece being made.

"Plynth has been a fantastic way for me to add an intimate connection with my patrons when they receive their postcard deliveries," said Lune.

"I had begun with handwritten notes, but when I outgrew the ability to keep up with this, Plynth enabled me to not only bring back the joy of discovering what’s in the envelope, but I can add all kinds of media like process videos and playlists that I couldn’t before. I’ve really been enjoying using it and I think my patrons have too."
