I've set up this area for Lifetime Members,businesses, and anyone who would like to go beyond a simple membership and make a substantial contribution towards the long-term future of Digital Blasphemy. Artists have relied on Patrons throughout history and now the Internet makes this easier than ever. Think of it as Crowdfunding without the Kickstarter...

I first got hooked on digital artwork back in '99. A friend showed me some desktop backgrounds done by another artist that had quite an obsession with spheres. I found these pastel landscapes captivating, and always wanted more.
Some time later, I found Digital Blasphemy and for years have enjoyed the free designs available here. I immediately downloaded all of them that were available, and continued to do so from time to time as the free gallery changed.
I have had several years of enjoyment, gazing into these unreal worlds.... and I finally decided that it was high time I actually paid for the enjoyment I was getting.
I purchased a lifetime membership because I feel that I've already had plenty more than a hundred bucks' worth of pleasure from this art - that's only, what, ten visits to a movie theater? And I NEVER have to renew? Sold.
I can say with all honesty, if Ryan stopped putting out new backgrounds right this very moment and never shared another one, I still feel like I'm getting a good deal.
So, with "Cloud Canyon" now on my dual screens at work, I have another world to look at in my spare time, and lazily wonder what's beyond the horizon....
