While I was heading to IndieGoGo to donate to a campaign for a Hyena Sanctuary (more on that below), another crowd-funding project caught my eye: A Redtail's Dream . This is a web-comic written and drawn by a Finnish artist named Minna Sundberg.

This web-comic is gorgeous. The artist is experimenting with styles-- mainly a rich water color and acrylic look-- and an entertaining story. Talking animals (Ville-the-sometimes-dog is *wonderful*). Scandinavian folklore and interesting characters.


Beautiful panels... then I am blown away seeing a panel like this:


Amazingly, she updates at least 6 days a week! For those of you (hi, Roz!) who hesitate to start reading a web-comic for fear the artist will lose interest, fear not-- the story is complete (she kept a 100+ page buffer). She is even holding an IndieGoGo
to collect the story into a hard-copy edition (*warning* Only about a day left on this IndieGoGo!). If anyone is ever considering doing a crowd-funding project, look at hers: this is the best-designed campaign I've ever come across. Great perks, good levels and an illustrated, VERY CLEAR explanation of what you get.

A good friend is also trying to crowd-fund the building of a hyena sanctuary to house the former members of a hyena research project (as opposed to the animals being euthanized when the research project ends). I highly encourage people to donate-- any amount would be appreciated!-- to this neat cause.

Wow. That's some seriously impressive work indeed! I do hope those PDFs are made available outside the IGG fundraising, given that's now over. (I've long preferred reading comics electronically, given the number of times I've moved - and the iPad's really rather a good device for such)

User [livejournal.com profile] porsupah referenced to your post from The case of the mistaken identity of potatoes dauphinoise (http://porsupah.livejournal.com/247450.html) saying: [...] pointed out an outstanding, beautiful webcomic, inspired by Finnish mythology: Redtail's Dream [...]
