Wananeko Fundraiser Meow !

JJ_project

Javier Jimenez has just started his IndieGoGo campaign to make his original character, Wananeko, into a Japanese made Sofubi ! It’s only been 24hrs and it’s 78% funded !

Javier, is a super talented artist from Spain whose love of Toys & Japanese culture really comes thru in this project. On a more personal note, Javier is a hard worker and good guy. He’s one of a handful of new Kaiju artists on the scene now that represent the future of indie Kaiju.

He still needs your help so follow this link:
