Furfunding Week in Review 8-12-14
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 post about it, too.
As an exercise to the reader, how could you actually tell a real Dashcon crowdfunding page from a scam, anyway?
Reviews this week: werewolves and scientists in Bleeding Heart, and a handful of assorted bear-related projects
For a “complete” list of furry/fur-friendly crowdfunding projects, check out the Project Page and Patreon Page!

| What’s Corbeau Backing This Week?
Currently we are funding a car and our mate has taken our wallet from us. But if we were funding something this week, it would probably be Bleeding Heart, because hey, steampunk and werewolves. We would also like to scrounge $75 or so for “Bare Strength” for research purposes but there probably haven’t been that many innovations in the cutting-edge field of “men not wearing pants” so that can probably wait.
