Hi, my name is Alexander Jansson and I´m an illustrator and artist from Gothenburg, Sweden. I mainly work with a digital mixed media combining my own photos with paintings and digital drawings to create the look that I want.

By request I have put together an amazing calendar for 2016 filled with my art and I am trying to work all the good experience that I got from last years campaign into this one.

If you pre-order calendars/prints/cards etc. you will pay for them in advance to be sure to get your hands on a copy of them. As long as I reach my Kickstarter goal of 30 000 Swedish crowns the project will be set in motion otherwise your money will be refunded. 

About the calendar 

The calendar will feature 13 pages of artwork by me, especially chosen for the year 2016. It will be professionally printed, by the same local printing house that I used last year, on a high quality glossy silk paper with a white Wire-O binding at the top.  

Size: A3 (11.69x16.5inches / 297x420mm)

Prints 

 Fine art prints on high quality matte paper with my artwork.  

"Juni/Juno". (To the left) signed. Size: 29x29cm. 

 "Mr Puppethead". (To the right) Signed. Size: 29x29cm.

 Cards  

A package of 6 double sided cards and envelopes with six different pieces of artwork by me. Size 15x15cm

Timeline 2015

  • September - Kickstarter launch
  • October - Survey / Production of calendar and rewards
  • November / December - Packing and shipping to backers

Shipping and packing 

I can ship worldwide. Simply select your favourite pledge option and your location and Kickstarter will calculate the shipping for you!

Shipping outside Sweden will be untracked. If you require a tracked solution for your rewards, please message me an I'll provide a shipping quote that you can add to your reward.

What if my parcel gets lost? In the event of lost orders in the mail (it happens), I will offer to resend the order once for free, or alternatively you will have the option of a refund. Please note that I can only reship an order once if it is lost. If the second parcel is lost, I will not be able to offer a refund. 

The calendars will be printed in October and I’ll be shipping them out no later then early December so that they reach you in good time before the new year.

Since my Art Calendar in size A3 campaign for 2015 on Kickstarter gave me a lot of good experience I aim to make it even better for both you and me this time. I will for example put a "Don´t bend" sticker or stamp on the packages for all the mailmen out there! Even though I had a big sticker saying fragile last year a couple of them thought it was a good idea to fold the package. 

Comments about last years calendar

"Still loving this year's!! My kids love seeing the new month. We talk about it at dinner and make up stories about the pictures. Love the sense of wonder in all your work!! (I have my print from the kickstarter framed and above my bed!)" Judy from USA

"I was just looking lovingly at my 2015 calendar. It brings joy and inspiration to me every day." - Pari from Australia

"I received my calendar today and truly love it. The paintings fill me with joy! The calendar came in perfect condition and the extra print I ordered is going to be framed and hung ASAP as I'm so excited and thrilled with it. Thank you for sharing your art and self with me for 2015. You are brilliant! Much happiness to you and your family over these blessed holidays. Thank you!" Helen from Canada

Risks and challenges

To minimize risks I have already made contact with the printing agency and had a proof printed copy made of the Calendar. This way I know that the quality of the calendars will be just the way I want it to be. I have also worked with the printing house before and know them to be both reliable and very good.

One risk to the project would be if the production of cards and calendars somehow gets delayed during printing.

But, fingers crossed, and if everything goes as scheduled, I'll start shipping rewards out by the end of November or early December.
