More Calendar Illustrations


A few weeks ago, I saw "500 Days of Summer" starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. I thought it was a great movie, and it gave me a lot to think about, regarding life paths, and how each of our choices effect each individual outcome. Anyway, the main character (Tom) wears sweater-vests throughout the film. I'd always associated the sweater-vest with things I think are lame (like Fred from "Scooby Doo"), and this was the first time I'd thought it was cool. So I made myself one out of an old sweater that the sleeves were falling apart on... Amy hates it.

In other news, I'm working this weekend on small buildings and figures similar to the one I made for Abby for Christmas. I'm working with my wife on our portfolio for the craft shows, and specifically for an artist co-op in the city. We're building our sales plan around items for the family, mostly toy's and games for the kids, as well as blankets and comfort items. Also, as I posted about yesterday, I've finished the Calendar, and it's up for sale both in my shop at lulu.com, as well as on bigcartel.com. Here's the rest of the illustrations from the calendar, and you can also get a preview of the whole calendar by clicking the preview link under the cover image on lulu.

I love it, Jeffrey!

I am so sorry to be slow to get to this post or to order my calendars. My friend was shot in Tucson and I have been either frantic or a zombie for over a week.

I'll place my order today! Also, I'll link to it from my blog in a few days when a more cheerful post is appropriate.

Hi Nance!

I saw that, and did an OMG, as well, so I totally understand. My brother and his wife also live in Tuscon, so the whole thing takes on a bit of a personal thing for me too as thoughts immediately turn to "What if". Thanks for stopping in.
