Courtesy Citybizlist – When Kevin Kallaugher, a freelance cartoonist for The Economist for all of 35 years and currently at The Baltimore Sun, set out to produce a coffee-table book, he didn’t seek out a literary agent or publisher. Instead, on Jan. 14, he set up a project on the crowdsourcing site Kickstarter, aiming to raise a modest $20,000.
By Jan. 21, Kallaugher had gotten pledges of $73,424, as fans, friends and well-wishers backed his project. With 23 days to go before the crowdsourced project closes, Kallaugher will likely to end up with much more.
