For the third year running, there will be a SamSketches calendar.
It is my hope for this third year that it will be gracing even more homes than its predecessors. The pieces selected, for the most part (not going to lie and say every single one), were done so with a special meaning behind each month assignment.
- July includes an illustration of Gader because it his birth month — his birthday will also be noted on each calendar as well, you’re welcome.
- August’s image and words refer to music, a reference selected for the birth month of the man responsible for my eclectic taste in and knowledge of music.
- October’s words come from the artist I share a birthday with in that month — Picasso.
And the rest — have fun trying to figure out and guess … or don’t and just enjoy the imagery. :)
I am currently awaiting my draft copy of the calendar to make sure it all comes out exactly as I would like it to. After I have held it and am okay with it, it will formally go on sale — $15 (w/ free shipping to your home).
For now, I am keeping a list of those interested in securing a copy from my first shipment of calendars, which has been impressively growing each day. (thanks!)
If you have not yet contacted me about making a calendar yours please do so to be part of the first shipment to go out! — simply email, text, FB comment/message, tweet, stop me in person
It was last year around this time, that I came up with a Christmas gift idea for my older sister, Sylvia. After a fun filled evening (as usual) with her in which we joked about how horrible she is with remembering dates, I decided to create for her a personalized calendar to supply her with many of the important dates she would need to remember. I also filled each month with my art, which she has always been a supporter (and perhaps slightly bias fan) of.
It wasn’t until I started showing a few people the gift, that I realized there were others who would appreciate the opportunity to have a calendar as well. I had a few more printed and debuted the 2014 calendar at some of the fairs and festivals I was glad to be a part of earlier this year.
I was not prepared for it to be one of the items I sold out of so quickly.
This time I decided I would be better prepared :)
And I am happy to say that 2014 has continued to be a year full of surprises, as the 2015 calendar is not yet off the presses and my preorders have already piled up.
I look forward to the first shipment arriving and sending off these little beauties to their new homes!
