Hey hey, calendar for sale!

*gasp*

Could it be? I know it's Friday night, but this thing is DONE and I am ready to get it into your lovely homes. So it gives me great pleasure to direct you toward an actual Etsy listing for my 2010 calendar. Click it!

Here are the final month images that I sent to the printer last week. I went to a press check on Monday, and it is looking so good. Beyond excited over here.







Also in the shop are prints I made for Zinefest back in August. Better late than never?

The Final Countdown (dada daa daaaa)



It's nearly there, everyone. Wednesday I sent le calendar to the printer, Thursday we tinkered with color profiles, and later this morning I'm going on a press check. It's looking really good for this calendar to be in my hands by -- now don't quote me on this -- Wednesday night. I can hardly believe it. Stay tuned! Aw, I was way wrong. Middle of next week, they're telling me. But I'll be listing them for sale in my shop on Friday, I think.

and finally, March and December

These two were the ones giving me the most trouble. But I think I'm finally happy with them!

March:


December:



Next up: just a few more tweaks on the cover typography, then I send this baby to the printer. I can't wait.

January, May, August

A little update: I do believe I've found the printing company who'll lovingly craft these calendars for me. This is definitely something to dance about, which is what I've been doing all day, in my desk chair, Wacom pen in hand. This is a pretty big step forward. One step closer to getting this thing into my shop, and onto your walls.

Now, where were we? Allow me to show you the three months I finished over the weekend.

May:



August:



Only March and December left to go. And they're very close.
