Hi all —
We're off and running! Fartacus has launched into the public's eye with this Kickstarter campaign, and not without its strange hiccups: Of course, as soon as we launched it, my email goes south and my Internet connection followed not far behind. Eesh.
But that's not enough to stop us! :)
Thanks to those who have donated so far, and helped to promote the project on Facebook or whatnot. This is the great challenge of all crowdfunded projects: getting the word out. So I will be reaching out to you here or there and asking for your help in spreading the word — but I promise not to be obnoxious about it! :) Still, the more traffic that lands on our Kickstarter page (link: http://kck.st/14yNBIv ), the more people can enjoy the fun and spirit of it all, and the better we can make this book and its accompanying knick-knacks. All of your support is ALWAYS GREATLY WELCOMED AND APPRECIATED! Let's all try to make Fartacus as big as it can be. The bigger, the more funner! (Yes, I know that's not a word, but roll with it).
I'll post more updates as we go throughout these next few weeks, but I'll start with this fun little snippet, a looping video showing Gibson launching the project — shot through the great Vine app:
And there's this one, too:
