Signers of the Constitution

My friends at Eastern National have started a Kickstarter campaign to redesign and republish an updated edition of The Signers of the Constitution, a 1976 National Park Service biographical publication. They are a nonprofit organization who support many of the National Parks in the Eastern US. So if you are interested in the national parks, or history in general, you should consider contributing! There are some really great backer gifts as well, that history fans are sure to enjoy.

Why am I writing about this here? I don't normally do much advertising. But my friends at this organization have helped me a lot in the past. I did some work for them a while back when they were developing their Passport to Your National Parks app, and it enabled me to have the little bit of pocket money that I did when I took the jump and moved to California. They've supported me a lot so I'd like to do the same for them.

Also, I did some talking-head animation of a few founding fathers for their Kickstarter video. It was fun to caricature known historical figures, especially since I don't do caricature very often. I would have liked to have more fluid expressive animation but for the timeline they were on I think it turned out fairly well.

The video is more an intro to the history behind the project, so head over to the Kickstarter page for more details on the project itself, and to see the list of rewards, including things like poster prints and hand-blown glass objects from the Jamestown Glasshouse in Jamestown, VA.
