If you are a struggling artist, you might be able to get funding/support for your work, Kickstarter-style at Drip (https://d.rip/discover)
The site is owned by Kickstarter and it just re-launched – it aims to support people (rather than projects ala Kickstarter) with a focus on creatives.
Right now it is in an invite only launch phase, but when this opens up to the public, it will be awesome. I encourage the dedicated writers and creatives out there to try and get support through Drip one day.

I funded an anthology of Sci-Fi stories (Long List Anthology Vol. 2), and for my funding I got a free copy of vol.1 from last year.
The booty comes in around 21 November. I am excited! My first Kickstarter project, and research for some more creative writing in the Sci-Fi genre.
If nay of you have suggestions for other projects to back, please let me know.
I have funded the following kickstarter campaign.

Have a look, it is a cool project with a track record from volume 1:
