1. Small wonders.

    Four new projects with clever ideas and modest goals caught our attention over the weekend. Standing out as great examples of Kickstarter ideas on a tight budget, these creators are all seeking less than $1,250. 

    Created by 24-year-old artist and writer Sam Maiden, Reboot is the first issue of a new comic-book collaboration. Maiden describes his true love as writing and producing comics, and his Kickstarter project is his first attempt to realize his dream in print.

    Dalek v Enterprise is a highly ambitious lark: A race to the stratosphere between the spacecrafts of Doctor Who and Star Trek. Creator Karlos Fandango’s previous Kickstarter project successfully sent a TARDIS to space and back — despite an unexpected detour up a tree — and he says that this new sci-fi adventure will be his last in the series. 

    Sling piping-hot dim sum as fast as you can — it’s Dim Sum Robot #1: Mecha Food Cart Action! This delicious little game puts you in charge of a robot food cart as you prowl the city, fly across buildings, and launch dumplings to happy patrons from across the street.

    Repeat creator Ray Sumser is an artist obsessed with cartoons. His ongoing project to catalog the “cartoon universe” has been entirely inspired and funded by his Kickstarter backers.

    It’s always exciting to see so many creators realizing little dreams in a big way. Discover more small projects on Kickstarter right here.

  2. Taking the plunge.
Sometimes the most meaningful Kickstarter projects come in the most modest packages.
Zach Alan Ginsberg is a young writer who finally decided to take the plunge and commit his poems to print. “They’ve been edited, torn apart, sewn together, and written out time and time again,” says Zach. “After writing out one of these poems into yet another journal I thought, ‘Hmm. Why don’t I try and just make this published?’ And then decided to embark on this quest…”
His goal is $400, which should help offset printing and shipping costs for an initial run.

Hey guys, my friend Zach (http://kodiakbrodiak.tumblr.com/) made a whole book of poetry called “Notes From The Bored Walk” and he’s trying to get it published! It happens to have my artwork slapped on the cover, so it would be really cool if it actually got published.
A collection of awesome poems and some of my printed work, win-win, right?
Go support it on kickstarter if you’re interested! :]

  3. BDR is a black-and-white mini-comic about a phoenix killing rooster, a man in a pit bull mask, and a legion of anthropomorphic cats. (Let’s reiterate here: a legion of anthropomorphic cats.) Creator Timothy O’Briant promises his work will “befuddle and delight” our visual senses, and judging by the art print he’s making available to backers, above — he speaks the truth. Check out the rest of his project here. It’s cute!
