If you have any self-respect as a designer, get on this. That is all.

Why do I have to pay for someone else’s dream.
you have a dream save for it and do it.

Hi Jonathan, thanks for your comment. Speaking for myself, I can sympathise with those that feel that the Kickstarter economy deserves some criticism. But I think you’re missing the point here. Sonnenzimmer – Hi Nick! – work as hard as anyone, and we here at TSA are in full support of them extending their hard work with a publication that aims to be more than just a coffee table book. And further, we think that using Kickstart as an administrative tool (in Nadine’s words) to allow people to prepay for a copy or support out of sheer goodwill, is brilliant. If you’re interested in process and concept in poster making, why not support this? Don’t you think the markup included in the majority of stuff we buy already has some kind of percentage dedicated to supporting or sustaining someone else’s “dream”?

We used kickstarter as a direct barometer for feedback, a direct maile and an administrative tool. If it didn’t happen, then tough love, there’s no need for it. We understand that as commercial artists. We are happy you felt no need for supporting it, Jonathan. What’s great about thestrangeattractor, is that there are real people behind this that actively support the image makers that they are blogging about. They don’t just rip inspiration without giving back. They don’t just post pictures without commentary. We think kickstarter is multi-faceted depending on how you use it. The best part of kickstarter is taking action in building your own audience.
