AN's Year, Giving Back

Postby Greg B » Tue Mar 19, 2013 6:53 pm

I'm working my ass off to catch up on lost things the past year. It was one evil year but the fact I survived is nothing less than a miracle.

I'm lining my projects up for more art and even some animation and will be using crowdfunding. I expect more ANers will be using crowdfunding and I'll share what I know about it with the upcoming ebook I'm working on.

However that's not all I'm sharing, I'm giving back. Yes, I for one will be forking over money to AN in donations because it's the right thing to do. It's about time us old skool ANers set more of an example and thank Charles and his crew for what they've done. In the past I've sent some money, stuck my neck out real far, got attacked and more but I knew a day would come when struggling artists would see the value of taking responsibility and getting into the fight not sitting on the sidelines.

Maybe we need a crowdfunding section of AN?

Greg, thanks! I'm planning a crowdfunding campaign. It will initially be for the Academy and will likely include AN under the campaign's umbrella. maybe a separate one for AN would be in order. We'll see.
