Kickstarter: Gary Baseman presents Mythical Creatures

Gary Baseman and filmmaker David Charles travel to the Ukraine to uncover the Holocaust experiences of Baseman's parents, and re-imagine their heroic stories through an inspiring, fantastical, heart-wrenching odyssey.

Baseman has taken to Kickstarter in an attempt to raise enough money to fund the film - Mythical Creatures. Some of the pledge reward options include Baseman art, his Toby plush, shirts, and a copy of the finished film.

This project will only be funded if at least $75,000 is pledged by Monday, August 18th 2014 at 12:04 PM EDT.

Kickstarter: Mayor 4 Crack

Created by artist Beck and Mindzai Labs, Mayor 4 Crack is a designer art toy project that's hit Kickstarter in an attempt to raise funds for production. Lampooning Toronto's "infamous crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford", the 5-inch Ford will include interchangeable signs...featuring some of his colorful quotes. And while there isn't a prototype available, the final 3D render is pictured below.

There are plans for various colorways, including a DIY version. The Early Bird Original Version is limited to 75 backers and is available for a $40.00 pledge (normally $45.00). This project will only be funded if at least $12,500 CAD is pledged by Wednesday, August 20th 2014 at 11:16AM ET.
