Illustration from Fearsome Creatures of the Night, now on Indiegogo A sincere apology for the recent unplanned hiatus. I went from a period of unemployment to getting a new job—with the first, it’s hard to concentrate on writing and creativity. With the second, there just isn’t time for it!  So it’s been almost a month ..

Illustration from Cats Royale and Dogs Royale card decks, now on Kickstarter. One of my private retreats from the bad projects and crude jokes that periodically flood Indiegogo and Kickstarter is the tumblr feed, Your Kickstarter Sucks. It is sadly not possible to do anything about Bad Kickstarters, except point on them and laugh. Or maybe ..

All-ages Comic: A child and her canine companion journeys north in a hellish land to find her brother and a better tomorrow… The Road North Kickstarter ending 7/25/15 (past goal!) Okay, this one’s not that furry, it’s more the “desert wasteland with a trusty canine” trope, well established in films like A Boy and His Dog and Mad ..

Instead of Hugging You, They Try to Kill You: Dawn of the Furries #2

This week’s illustration is from”Child of the Daystar,” fantasy/action novel now on Kickstarter It’s another lazy summer day, and you know, I haven’t seen that much from furry crowdfundingland that really amazes me. I’m a little curious about “Furries: The Movie,” because it’s a surreal love story and I’m not sure it has anything to do ..

Silence of the Llamas: Faces of the Wild

Silence of the Llamas: Faces of the Wild

Photomanipulated portraits and digital make-up effects to discuss the challenges of imprisoned animals… Faces of the Wild Kickstarter ending 8/3/2015 So…in terms of recommending this project, I don’t think I can. It doesn’t look like the artist himself is promoting it, and there’s little or nothing a page on Kickstarter can do to salvage a project that ..

This week’s illustration is from “Fell,” tabletop players-vs-board game now on Kickstarter I’m curious about how to approach the game, “Fursuit Frenzy.” There’s a lot about it that I can agree on—the creator wants to make a nice, streamlined little game for conventions that isn’t based on Furotica’s weird harem-building dynamic and that isn’t fundamentally pornographic. ..

Illustration from Floral Frolic on Kickstarter. You know, I think the “charm” project is our version of the minimalist wallet. I’ve mentioned this before, but there’s a recurring project idea on Kickstarter (besides endless versions of the Werewolf card game and crowdfunded salad), and that’s the wallet–usually “minimalist wallet,” which is a sort of up-scale version ..
