Steampunk Crowdfunding: September Edition
Wow! Is it that time again already? I don’t know if it is because of the “back to school” season or what, but there aren’t as many projects this month. But even with fewer to choose from, I ended up pledging to two campaigns this month. Will you help someone’s dream come true, too?
What’s Going on Right Now
The Steamplush Gang: Prints, Ends Oct 11
The Steamplush Gang is an illustration project of a trio of steampunk themed stuffed toys. The steampunk look and feel has always fascinated me and I had been brainstorming personal projects that would let me explore more of that genre when I hit upon this gem of an idea.
They all started their lives in my sketchbook where I worked out their core look and feel before I began to refine their design and paint them digitally.
They are all finished now and I am hoping that through this Kickstarter my little creations can help spread some of that fascination and wonder to others.
My favorite reward: A $10 pledge gets you a print of your choice
Junx’n Punks Comic Books, Ends Oct 16
Junx’n Punks ( pronounced “Junction”, or if you like “Junks and” — feel free to start an internet war over that ) is an all-ages adventure comic starring a group of young survivors in the distant future who physically bond with an adaptable alien race, giving them special abilities to fight for their freedom.
My favorite reward: For a $5 pledge you get the first 24 pages of the comic series, plus a whole bundle of behind the scenes materials like notes, backstory and more.
