I don't know why he hasn't asked to have this posted on Pixel Joint (or maybe he has?), and while he's already crushed his original goal, I think the project deserves more attention.
To sum it up simply: he wants to make some really in-depth pixel art tutorials. The video on the Indiegogo page is worth watching for the animations alone, but it also does a great job of outlining what he hopes to accomplish with his guide.
I think a lot of people on Pixel Joint know him as the guy who makes some really cool and detailed animations. And the guy who does the show cards for JonTron's Youtube Videos. Aside from that though, I think his work speaks for itself, and I'd love to see the kind of knowledge that he'd be able to share if his project got a little more funding. :)
