First off, let me tell you who I am and what I do.
My name is Steve and I am a Freelance Illustrator and Animator. I graduated from the Academy of Art University San Francisco back in 2009 with a BFA in Character Animation. I had a brief stint with a small independent animation studio, but left once the project was scrapped. Now I work out of my home doing illustrations and such.
Having said this, while I have good equipment to work from, its old and my Intel based Mac broke on me for the third time (EVEN THIS ONE IS OLD AND WAS UNDERPERFORMING!!!
) I'm tired of having to stop production because of a broken computer.
The issue is, that's where I animate! my PowerMac G5 is way too old to do any animation and Autodesk is sticklers for licensing so I cannot run Maya on two computers at once...nor do I really want to.
So I need new equipment to continue to grow as an artist but as like everything, new stuff costs money!!!!
This is where IndieGoGo comes along. I need your help! There's 19 days left in the campaign and I am no where near my goal. Granted if I can reach at least $4000 or $5000, I can get started without all that I've requested.

to watch the video and if you go into my gallery, you'll find another video featuring my portfolio (it has some animations on there)
I really need your help here to make this happen! Thank you.
