This week’s illustration is from surreal Italian graphic novel/novel “La Storia dell Orso” on Indiegogo.  Is this possibly a side effect of the recent deregulation of Kickstarter as an “anything goes” medium, or a result of their strange funding/voting model and price structure? I can’t tell. But it looks like Offbeatr, the crowdfunding site devoted exclusively ..

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 ..

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), ..

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 ..

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 ..

This week’s illustration is from the animation project, Gym Rat Squad. I have been up to my elbows in smutty projects lately. On and off I’ve been bookmarking and skimming adult projects on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, to see how those projects fly, and what the general range of acceptability is. Weirdly, Indiegogo allows porn but ..

This week’s illustration is from Roo’s Chibi Character Sheet.  This is a silly little thing, but today I noticed that you can “feature” a pledge level in Indiegogo. Neat! I first stumbled across this in Mordrude’s Monster Manual. Now, normally, the prices and pledges are organized from, you know, the $1 “because you love us (expect ..

This week’s illustration is from Deer Editor by Ryan K Lindsay, now on Kickstarter I can’t tell you how much my heart broke when I went back to Indiegogo and saw that the crowdfunding project for Dashcon 2015 was taken down, probably because it was a scam. I was going to write a rather long ..
