Furfunding Week in Review 3-23-14
This week’s illustration is from the IGG campaign for the “Wuffle the Big Nice Wolf” graphic novel.
Once again, I seem to have forgotten what happens when I skip a week, so there’s LOTS of new projects!
One minor apology for my artist friends, I’m having problems wrapping my head around how to handle Patreon pages. The way I’m doing it is work-intensive and not really very useful. In a few weeks I’m picking up a new WordPress theme and redoing those pages, but in the meantime, I won’t be updating the Patreon materials. Sorry about that! It’s just super-slow the way I was coding them. The website may be down, or fugly, for a few days while I convert the posts over to the new theme.
Reviews this…weeks…for the Battle Badges badgeable con game, a pair of graphic novels (The Oswald Chronicles and Hounds of Love), the latest Ironclaw project, and the epic “Anthrology” art collection.
For a “complete” list of furry/fur-friendly crowdfunding projects, check out the Project Page and Patreon Page!

Snark–but loving snark–from The Bad Furry. Not quite ready for prime time patreon page, but fun stuff.

Disturbingly cute little kittens and their animated short videos. They’re like gummi kittens with stars in them, really.
