Next Phase

Alright people I have set up a fundraiser to replace this one. The funding ceiling is set at $500 and it's flexible funding so you will receive your artwork no matter what.

Update 3

Thanks everyone who has pledged and shared my work. It's been interesting seeing the McDonald's mummy get noticed outside of Texas. Anyways we now have 4 days and a little over $2100 to go. My fingers are crossed, but unless something magical happens like Charles Saatchi, or some other large collector pledging I doubt this first fundraiser will go through. 

On the bright side, if you're willing to stick with me and help support my work I'd appreciate it and will make sure you have access to these initial fundraising deals. Just keep up with www.beneverywhere.comwww.twitter.com/IsBenEverywhere, or my profile here on kickstarter.

Let me know what you think, I look forward to your feedback.

Thanks,

-Ben

New Fast Food Mummy Ideas

Updated the Kickstarter page to say that I would like to include mummies from different cultures and fast food chains such as Taco Bell Aztecs, Pizza Hut Pompeii, and scurvy Pirates made from Long John Silver's. Also included long term goals.

Status Report

Alright people we have $331 pledged so far, %13 funded, with 13 days to go and 13 backers. I figured you numerology oriented folks might enjoy that. 

Other than that It's been pretty surreal seeing this McMummy go viral. Thanks for your support and keep spreading the word to friends and family if you are doing so. I'd like to make your investment worth loads of money some day, so let's keep pushing this until the last second and we'll figure out what happens after that. After all, none of this would have happened if I gave up.

Have a most excellent day,

-Ben
