A savage world of pantherine warriors and reptile foes… Tribes of Kai Kickstarter ending 4/10/15 A picture is worth a thousand words. Really. I’m trying to find a way to talk about this project that isn’t just pointing at the kickstarter page and shouting “LOOK! LOOK AT THE CATS!!” It’s challenging. In a world that ..
Half the artists go on a creative quest to Botswana…a multimedia journey and collaborative story Expanding Horizons Kickstarter ending 3/7/15 Before I get much further, I’m going to say what we must all be thinking: I would love to be on that boat.
