Illustration from Animal Superheroes, now on Indiegogo It’s nice to know there are other economies as undervalued as the furry commission scene. I got a “Follow” from a startup company called Backerhack, which offers a really cool product: reviews, feedback, retweets, from Kickstarter “power backers.” Get your campaign reviewed by someone who’s got a lot of ..
Faux Paws On Kickstarter through 02/02/16 Just a little callout for a cute project! Rick Hamilton has run at least one other Kickstarter that was cute and on topic for this blog: his cutiemark socks. “Faux Paws” are his latest project, cute little fursona-styled half-calf stockings. Each one has animal patterns up and down their ..
There She Is! Episode 6 and DVD Indiegogo running through 2/11/16 Meet Cute (N): A scene, typically in film or television, in which a future romantic couple meets for the first time in a way that is considered adorable, entertaining, or amusing. It’s kind of amazing that this sweet, awkward couple—Tokki Doki the rabbit (her name means rabbit, which ..
This week’s illustration is from the art-print project, Octopedestrians, now on Kickstarter I usually call these entries “Furfunding Highlights,” but I think this is going to be the “lowlights” episode. Where do I start… The Beast’s Fury Mess Haven’t really been keeping up with Beast’s Fury, it was a big bucket of excitement back when ..
Untamed Playing Cards Kickstarter ending 2/5/16 Okay, I’m torn. I want to talk about this nice little playing card project, it’s got great lines and amusingly sturdy characters. But I really want to talk about the project creator, Fek, who has had remarkable success with crowdfunding in the last few weeks. What to lead with? ..
Illustration from “Ice Dragons and Arctic Creatures,” now (successfully) funding on Kickstarter Last Ladies of 2015 I’m from Texas. And that means that, while technically it’s winter, what these ladies are wearing, or failing to wear, is perfectly appropriate for our 75-degree days. They might want to put on a little something at night, but ..
Illustration from French animated series “The Crumpets,” now on Kickstarter It’s AMAZING how many new projects there are, even in the December Kickstarter slowdown period, when you only update once a month. Trying to pick up the pace on this, but it’s been a challenging, wow, six months. Anyway… First, check out Indiegogo’s nifty project ..
An online CCG with literally all the cats. Catamancer On Kickstarter through 11/29/15 Catamancer, now on Kickstarter, isn’t specifically a furry product. If anything, it’s an internet culture product. Cats are natural meme-generators, and many of the ideas in this virtual collectible card game draw from the strange synergy between net.geeks and cats. But ..
Illustration from The Octavius Bear series, now on Kickstarter So, it’s always been my intent to keep Furstarter weekly-ish, and over the last few months a combination of work/life balance and somewhat slower trickle of exciting projects has kept me a bit off my posting schedule. So…this one’s really late! I’d like to put in a ..
