Howdy Partner! The name's Copes. Marc Copes. I'm the Mayor 'round these parts.

Finally, a photo of my good side.

Since 2009, I've been drawing a humble little webcomic called Cow Texas

Maybe you've seen it on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. Maybe you look forward to my weekly dispatches in your inbox. Or maybe you're realising all of the subtle ways I'm trying to get you to subscribe to my comic. Guilty as charged!

I grew up reading Garfield, The Farside and Pearls Before Swine and I can now see how these strips were huge inspirations for my own comic, with their unique humour and gag-a-day format. Cow Texas is very much a love letter to my childhood heroes.

For the last 4 years I’ve been coming to Kickstarter to crowdfund Cow Texas Calendars featuring 12 exclusively drawn, full-page cartoons by yours truly, to help fund the next year of free webcomic creation. And backers from around the world seem to really enjoy them! 

These calendars are special to me. They're a time capsule of my proudest cartoons from the last 12 months. I have them printed on high quality paper stock, and hand pack the envelopes myself. From my kitchen table in Australia to your favourite wall.

This year I'm trying something new. I really want to thank the people that choose to support me and my crazy creative life path, and so I'm selling them cheaper than ever before. 

There is a limited EARLY BIRD tier for the first lucky 13 backers. Ordering more than one calendar also unlocks early bird pricing AND discounted combined shipping!

Want to order more than 4 calendars? Send me an email and I'll explain how you can do that too.

Without further ado, here's next year's calendar images, in no particular order.

That's the hope. And Kickstarter here is the perfect platform for the job.

By backing this campaign you'll get a unique, funny calendar by an aspiring cartoonist (or your friends and family do if you get extras as presents!) whilst enabling me to continue to draw Cow Texas and focus on the funny rather than the money.

2020 will be the year for getting stuff done. And this calendar is going to be your partner in crime. Let's do this.

Risks and challenges

- Printing -

I’ve been working alongside my printing partner for the last 4 crowdfunding campaigns, and I’m confident they'll be able to help me with any unforeseen issues that may arise in this campaign.

- Postage -

Postage fees are somewhat unpredictable, and quite frankly, annoying. I've quoted all iterations and tried to make postage fees as low as possible. Any costs outside of the ones charged I will personally cover. I want you to receive a quality calendar at a reasonable price in time for Christmas and the New Year, and will do everything within my means to make that happen.

- Love -

Thanks for reading all the way to the bottom of this page. I think I'm in love with you. This is both a risk AND a challenge.
