Daniel Lieske & Wormworld

No matter what people say about him (much of it justified), the Wookiee has his plus points. One of them is how, a couple of years ago, he re-introduced me to the joys of graphic novels and comics. I still refuse to read them on the train, and I only possess a few, but they’re damned good ones!

So anyway, what with being a web geek, a sucker for adventure tales, and revelling in beautiful design, I couldn’t help but fall head over heels in love with the Wormworld Saga. I urge you to go and read the first chapter, and lose yourself in Daniel Lieske’s beautiful artwork. It’s OK, I can wait.

Fantastic eh? What’s even better, is that in a bid to make money so he can focus on the saga, he’s done really well with a Kickstarter project for a Wormworld app. And I am delighted. Both that he is now able to fulfil his dream, but also in seeing something like Kickstarter out there: it’s a fantastic idea:

Kickstarter is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. Every month, tens of thousands of amazing people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, film, art, technology, design, food, publishing and other creative fields.

A new form of commerce and patronage. This is not about investment or lending. Project creators keep 100% ownership and control over their work. Instead, they offer products and experiences that are unique to each project.

Now that’s what I call “social business” (if I really must…)
