Furfunding Week in Review: 8-3-14

This week’s illustration is from the embarrassingly-named “Steamy Chums,” now on Kickstarter Lots of conversations about Patreon this week–it’s kind of an artist’s dream, to be paid for the kind of work they want to do rather than the kind of work they feel they have to do. I’m not an artist, so if “feel” is ..

This week’s illustration is from the cute mythological card deck “Mythic Chibi Playing Cards,” now on Kickstarter The endless stream of “potato salad” projects seems to be abating on Kickstarter, which is a good thing, although now Indiegogo is being infected with them. In the final analysis, the only strength Kickstarter has–which is major–is that ..

Today’s illustration is from the Kickstarter campaign “Water Dragons and Other Aquatic Creatures” by Jessica Feinberg Back from Anthrocon! What a treat! One of the highlights for me was an excellent panel on business for furry artists by the artist of the biz/art webcomic, “Three Jaguars.” Her website is totally worth a review, with loads of ..

Today’s illustration is from the Indiegogo campaign “Doberfrau” by Claudia Bacco I had a friendly email from Claudia Bacco, one of the photographers of the “Doberfrau” photography campaign, asking for a little callout. Happy to oblige, I really like her retro-pop aesthetic, the colors of the 80s and the dobermans of today. Thanks for sharing these ..

This week’s illustration is from the Kickstarter for the tabletop role-playing game, Ponyfinder: Griffins of Everglow Oh boy, I skipped a week and the skies opened up and projects just spilled out. Lots of good stuff this week–I particularly liked the 30s-retro version of Rocket Racoon from “Guardians of the Galaxy,” check him here–but my enigmatic ..

This week’s illustration is from the Kickstarter for the surreal photo project, “Horace and Agnes: A Love Story“ Ahem. I think that just perhaps my coffee was a little too strong this week, or maybe all the twerps finally discovered Kickstarter, this week’s blog is rich with irritation and put-upon sighs. My apologies. There are some ..

This week’s illustration is from the Kickstarter campaign for the Sherlock-inspired anthro card deck, The Game Is On. I have a theory that any project coming back for a second round of crowdfunding is just doomed to failure. In the year that I’ve been looking at kickstarters, all the “try-agains!” seem to tank. Even if the ..

This week’s illustration is from the Kickstarter project, “Poochinality/Purrsonality” by LeahTribal. Little milestone this week for Furstarter, according to Twitter, Tumblr, and a few other ‘rs, it’s been a year since our first post. So a belated happy birthday to this silly project. Things I’ve learned over the year: Werewolf projects are a dime a dozen ..

This week’s illustration is from the indiegogo campaign for Goldenwolf’s new sketch book! I wish I could talk more about this, as I get more pieces together I’ll have an official announcement probably a week or two from now, but I’m working with a few artists on a new Kickstarter launching in July. More as ..
