The Kickstarter product gives donors a look into the ongoing creative process of artists

Kickstarter has launched a new version of Drip, a platform for creative artists to gather both support and funding for their work. Drip offers a unique opportunity for artists to receive ongoing support, while allowing donors to follow and enjoy the development of the artists.

To begin with Drip, artists are advised to think in terms of what they can provide to subscribers to make the relationship mutually beneficial. Drip provides the artists with an opportunity to gather funds and support, but the extra draw for the donors is the invitation to witness and thus be a part of the creative process by being given things like behind-the-scenes access, the artists’ latest releases and updates on current projects.

Drip is currently invite only, however, the site plans to open up to more artists by early next year; interested creators are offered the opportunity to submit their emails at the bottom of the Drip homepage.

The platform expressed its intentions of focusing on the artists in a post on the Kickstarter blog. “In building the new Drip, it’s been exciting to have a clean slate to reconsider how to present creators and their work. We wanted to create something that felt light and kept creators—not Drip—as the focus.”

Creators currently using Drip include Debbie Millman, Molly Soda and Shantell Martin, among others.
