I am happy now because the test copy of my calendar has finally arrived!
Here's about three quarters of the amazing front cover. Leave me alone, I'm not a photographist.
The company I went through charged $23 to have it printed, but now I see why, because it's quite big and of really insane quality. Each page is like, really thick and the colours came out super great.
I got to choose the dates that I wanted on it but I went a bit crazy so it has lots of dates for lots of countries.
Now I can always have an inspirational Rowan picture to look at if I ever feel my vital manliness waning. And by 'always' I guess I mean 'during September 2014.' Before or after that, my manliness is a lost cause.
I was kinda forced to add a themed border, but it works pretty well, even for the very light toned pages.
But yeah anyway, I was really happy with how it came out and making this was a fun excuse to draw all the characters interacting. It was interesting thinking up all the themes, especially since I wanted to feature as many characters as possible and not use any single poke' more than three times. Multipass seemed to find his way onto all three of the 'tough guys' 'smart guys' and 'internet guys' pages with the exact same expression each time of course.
I'll upload all the pages to Deviantart eventually, when there is a lull in other stuff and I need to fill a void, but if you want to see them, there is a preview at: www.lulu.com/spotlight/kitfox
While you're there, you could always pick one up if you wanted! As mentioned before, I did this for myself, but I've made it available for anyone to get one. Worldwide shipping is around $5 and the $23 price is just what Lulu.com charges to print it. I wouldn't really want to make a profit out of someone else's IP of course, but I like the idea of people having the calendar in their own homes ^__^
Anyway, I should get back to commissions and comic pages.
