11-3-14 Furfunding Highlights

This week’s illustration is from Tara Fly’s 2015 Literary Cats calendar, now on Kickstarter.  Okay, okay, okay. What would happen if Indiegogo decided to take on the sort of ongoing crowdfunding that Patreon does? But–wait for it–only for successful projects? It’s happened. There was a time when I really liked Kickstarter and really hated Indiegogo. Kickstarter ..

In 3038 there are only bears: Anthro Borgs

In 3038 there are only bears: Anthro Borgs

Spinning blades and bionic bears in a danger room dungeon crawl… Anthro Borgs [EDIT: Funding and project cancelled :( ] One of the best things about Nazis–and, yes, it is kind of a short list–is that, year in and year out, they’re a great go-to villain. Like hula hoops and oligarchy, they just keep coming ..

12 Pieces of Pewter: Paw Coins

12 Pieces of Pewter: Paw Coins

Collectable medallions with a broad range of art… Paw Coins Collectible Coins Kickstarter ending 11/24/14 The word for the day is “Exonumia.” One of the things I hope to see in endlessly refreshing Kickstarter is the next big con craze. And I know I won’t see it coming, or I’ll totally get it wrong. I ..

This week’s illustration is from Hiorou’s  webcomic, Eorah, now on Indiegogo.  Good grief, it’s been an interesting week for furry-inspired tabletop RPGs, with two compelling projects–the first, Ultimum, is more interesting for what it threatens to do to the RPG industry (I really don’t know enough about the game’s story to get a read on it), ..

Prelude to War: Rudek & the Bear

Prelude to War: Rudek & the Bear

Historical humor set on the Russia/Poland border, 1929… Rudek and the Bear Kickstarter ending 11/13/2014 I just finished looking over author/illustrator Peter Donahue’s pitch video for “Rudek and the Bear” and it got me thinking of how rich historical allegory as a genre is for fans of anthropomorphics. One of my more recent finds is the ..

This week’s illustration is from the art book and card set, Fire Dragons and Other Rare Ember Creatures,  I’m at a loss on semi-furry celebrity artist Dave Smith’s kickstarter, “Cerebus Archive Number 2.” I am totally unclear on the concept, I do not even have a roadmap to the concept. I know what we are selling here–a ..

Dapper, Troubled, Vulpine: The Unlucky Fox

Dapper, Troubled, Vulpine: The Unlucky Fox

A young fox returns to the continent of his birth to find conspiracy and danger… The Unlucky Fox (Or, The Peculiar Story of a Dapper Young Fox Out to Solve a Family Mystery in India) Kickstarter ending 10/31/14 For me, this book hits all the right notes. Not only is the illustration work sterling–rich backgrounds, ..

Furfunding Week in Review: 9-21-14

Furfunding Week in Review: 9-21-14

This week’s illustration is from the children’s graphic novel, “Fetch: An Odyssey“ It’s been a quiet week in Lake Woebegon, not a lot of projects really “popping” so far as a high anthropomorphic content goes. The only one that really stands out to me, and it’s a bit off topic, is “Fetch,” which hits a ..

This week’s illustration is from the children’s book project, Animal Kingdom Construction Co.  Wow! I have no idea what cosmic spigots got turned on, but this week was a flood of interesting projects, after a comparative dry spell. 15 fun projects! There was also a brief flash in the pan when a revival project of the ..
