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 ..
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 ..
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 ..
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 ..
Illustration from Pop Cats on Kickstarter Well, I got to say, this is bold. In a world where refugees simply cannot find a place to escape the horrors of their homeland, a remarkable campaign—and not just one person with a paypal account and a half-baked idea, but a legitimate, multimedia, workshops and encounter groups, five-year-plan ..
A care package from space, and the week’s projects. Illustration from “Fantasy Squish Playing Card Deck,” now on Kickstarter. I am a bit of a ditz. I accept this and embrace it. I also have a bad habit of ordering things on Kickstarter and forgetting about them—and the “surprise, it’s Kickstarter Christmas!” is a part ..
Wherein Kickstarter makes a promise to do more good… Illustration from “Air Dragons and Other Sky Creatures” on Kickstarter With politics, war, and terror in the news 24/7, it’s a rare thing for me to turn up the volume on the car radio, but the sentence “Kickstarter Inc. is no more” kind of stood out. And, ..
How Patreon saved Nerd Rock, and lots of new projects Illustration from “Pixel Monsters” on Kickstarter Nerdcore is one of my favorite musical “genres,” if it can be properly called that. I guess I’m more a fan of Nerd Rock, which steps out of hip-hop and into quirky female voices, chiptunes, video game remixes, but ..
