About this Artist and Site

This site is intended for legal adults 18+ due to words, nudity, and sexual content in some of the visual art and poetry.
I am Richard B ChauDavis, San Diego artist (born 1956), doing my art professionally since graduating from UCSB College of Creative Studies with a Bachelor of Arts in 1979.  Married (1) with children (2), cisgender, Christian, bisexual, monogamous, he/him/they/them.  Art that's often naked, edgy, ethical, sexual, multimedia, performance, composite, archival...

Everyone who joins this site www.rbcdart.com (free, premium or comped)  receives the biweekly newsletter.  They choose 2 other newsletters (Nearly Daily Historical, and Current Stuff).  All Premium Tiers have the same benefits; full access to the sites posts; 20% discount on art and books; and, recorded Zoom Video Discussing Work (Yours or Richard's).  Free members have the same benefits as Premium except their access is limited to public (all age) posts.

Fred Marinello's daughter suggested Ghost.org to host www.rbcdart.com after I left Patreon.   It has proved a good suggestion.  The premium subscriber (patron) or free subscriber logs in with their email, no password required.  When subscribing to a premium tier, the credit card info is held by Stripe (not myself or Ghost).  Stripe is very solid.  

A member can  sign up or cancel any of the 3 newsletters by logging into their account, clicking on the green button and then manage on the emails button. The three newsletters are:
Baer's Reveal
A biweekly newsletter aimed at all audiences showing what I have been posting in the last 2 weeks. Links in the newsletter lead back to the original post on www.rbcdart.com (which may or may not be for all audiences). Baer's Reveal is the default newsletter automatically sent to all members.
Nearly Daily Historical Posts
Daily posts from work done sometime in the past. Wide range of work. Premium members (comped or paid) get all, free members get the public posts.
Public Posts
Some people do not want human nudes and sexual content, I don't understand...  The thing is that I can accommodate without depriving everybody.  I am committed to providing filters for those that want them!  This newsletter is for everything but nudes, and sexual content.

I also create tags on the site which allow me to share in depth and link things together.  The tag #Projects (bodies of work) and a couple others are visible in the header along with #Home.  #Home lists posts in order of age, newest first.  All the other tags are accessible from the site search feature (looking glass in the upper right corner of each page).  Type a year into search (ex: #zzz-1990) to see what I was doing that year.  This site is filling out with information and images as the daily posts capture my history as an artist.  Current list (as of 1-19-2023) of Tags at www.rbcdart.com/tag-index/ or just use the sites search feature.

To cancel any email newsletter, use your account controls or email me.  To cancel your account and pledge contact me by email (rbchaudavis@gmail.com) or phone/text (619-337-5489).   If you have any other questions use the same number and that email to contact me.  You can also just reply to any newsletter I send you and I will get the message.
