Comics By Request: People, Projects In Need Of Funding

image* the 2dcloud-related crowd-funder has about six percent pledged with 16 days left. It's been an active item of discussion in my inbox, but I've talked to very few outright supporters of that project.

* it's hard to imagine that the wider comics community can ever argue they don't have enough money to fund things, when something like this goes over $10k. Anyone that wants art created by others to specifically suit themselves, I want to actively root against them.

* finally: here's another effort from Pacific Northwest College Of Art. It sounds like this column mentioned an earlier one.

Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* could anyone with information about an award or awards program named after the late Mark Campos I've seen a whisper here and there but nothing comes back on basic searches. I was fond of Mark, and would like to boost word of it.

* I was never a Blab! guy, although I liked several individual features. Hard to beat this Drew Friedman ad, though.

* finally, festivals extra: we're getting close to the deadline on the Dash grant organized by Short Run. That sounds like a fun and useful program.
