Steampunk Raccoon by Steamy Chums

On October 13, Steamy Chums is going to release the next character in the Steamy Chums world, Raccoon. After a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign, Steamy Chums has been working full steam ahead, creating rewards and continuing to create and expand the world of Steamy Chums. Created using 3D modeling and a 3D printer, Raccoon features the same steampunk design aesthetic as the initial characters Sloth and Fox.

From Steamy Chums:
It is created by the survivors living in Camp Prema, who specialized in recreating woodland creatures, after everything was lost in the apocalyptic disaster that wiped away almost all Life.

This little creature has a mischievous character, smart, and with lots of energy. In order to render such a character, we designed him alcohol powered. You can see the tiny barrel full of its fuel in the maze of gears and pipes.

With this third figure, Steamy Chums brings on its message of love for all living beings and faith in humanity. Our provocative story is meant to raise awareness towards the risks of losing wildlife.

Standing at 12cm (or just under 4 3/4 inches), Raccoon will be priced at 58 Euros (~$74). Limited to just 50 pieces, these resin Raccoons will become available on Monday October 13th at 11am PST. After this initial release, Raccoon will also be released in other series called pop, quartz and DIY. For all those interested, be sure to sign up for the Steamy Chums' newsletter to stay up to date with this and all future releases.

Last Gasp Books Fall Publishing Kickstarter

For 45 years, San Francisco based Last Gasp Publishing has been publishing books, as well as distributing books from small and independent publishers to a network of booksellers worldwide. With book publishing changing dramatically with the increase of technology and online resources, it has become difficult to publish books. In order to continue with the fall publishing season, Last Gasp has launched a Kickstarter to take care of the up front costs. Last Gasp has produced books for some amazing people over the last four decades.
From the Last Gasp Kickstarter page:

In more than four decades we have published books with artists such as Robert Crumb, Mark Ryden,Camille Rose Garcia,Gary Baseman, Robert Williams, Junko Mizuno,Trina Robbins, S. Clay Wilson, Justin Green, Spain Rodriguez, Keiji Nakazawa, Suehiro Maruo, Elizabeth McGrath, Timothy Leary, Todd Schorr, Ron English, Laurie Lipton, Diane DiPrima, and countless others.
With about a week left to go and over 50% more funding to be pledged, Last Gasp needs everyone's support to reach the $75K funding goal. Posting, tweeting, Instagramming, and all other forms of social media can help spread the word. Choosing an awesome reward and pledging any amount to the Last Gasp Kickstarter will help keep publishing alive, even if just for a little while longer.
