Creator Q&A: Lennie Hsiao on her Afrobeat Spaghetti Western Comic

  1. New Projects Are Poppin'

    What happened to us this weekend?! Well, for one, the Second Annual Kickstarter Film Festival was a smash success! It was a meeting of the beards, a meeting of the minds, and (best of all), a meeting of some of our favorite-ever-Kickstarter-project-creators. Fantastic! But now we're all back in the way-too-hot office and it's business as usual, except even business around these parts is pretty darn fun, as it always includes numerous, astoundingly exciting, recently launched projects. Get a load of 'em this week, trust us. There's popcorn, games, weird art, ice-cream, more weird art... Click click click!

  2. KSR IRL Alert: FEAST This Saturday, 7/9!

    Kickstarter Projects! In Real Life! Hooray!

    This Saturday, July 9th, former KSR project FEAST is holding court at the Church of the Messiah in Greenpoint, Brooklyn from 5 to 8 pm.

    FEAST = Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics. These large-scale and locally-sourced public dinners supply guests with ballots to vote for their favorite artist project proposal. The winning artist gets to take home the funds collected at the door. Returning to show their progress, this FEAST will feature a preview by former winner Closing the Loop, part of the Gowanus Canal Conservancy’s “Composting Gowanus!” program to produce and distribute healthy soil nutrients for the local community.

    As always, FEAST promises killer food, plenty of Brooklyn Brew, and rad projects.

    Got an awesome event coming up that’s related to your successfully-funded Kickstarter project? We’d love to hear from you! Please send all your event deets to calendar@kickstarter.com.
