Whether you're a fan of an indie artist or a creator looking to make a bit of dough, it's time to find out more about the sites that can help you support the work you love (or get supported for doing the work you love). Sure, you could buy a band's shirt, or a piece of art from your favourite water-colourist, but if you want to do your part to help your favourite starving artist fill their coffers so they can continue to create more of the stuff they love, you can use these sites to provide a more steady and secure stream of income. Every little bit helps, after all.

Artist funding platform Patreon is making some changes to the way it deals with patron pledges and it's already costing both creators and their supporters more than they'd like.

Unfortunately, that also means patrons will be charged more for their pledges -- and as a result, some patrons are reducing or cancelling their pledges.
