 Today, we toasted to the last big group of calendars going out the door! We have one or two more individual packages to ship tomorrow, and there are aprox. 50 people who haven't answered their surveys. If you are one of those people, we can't ship your calendar to you until you do!

Thank you so much to everyone who supported this Kickstarter! I am so excited that YOU are excited about this new character. I have been working on writing a children's book about Celara as a little girl, I will hopefully be ready to share it with you soon. I am thinking about Kickstarting that in the future, and/or a "Art of Karen Hallion" book. I will keep you posted. ;)

      I bought this for my 8-year-old daughter for Christmas, and she absolutely loves it. "She made a calendar?!" She couldn't believe it was real. Thanks again for putting this together. I'll buy one every year if you make one. :)

      I am in awe of this marvelous work. I have always loved Karen's style and her twisted inter-connective brain. Celara is a magnificent creation to bring the love of books, adventure, culture, thought, aspiration, curiosity, and dreaming into a single character. I will give the calendar to my 20-year-old. And maybe some day I will get to give all the Celara books to her daughter or son.

      My calendar arrived & is hanging in my Librarian office where I spend the day ordering lots of books for a public library. It is a perfect addition!

      Congrats for a job well done! I can hardly wait for January so I can put mine up (actually, I like the anticipation of waiting). Would love to see an "Art of Karen Hallion" book. Would you be able to include examples of your licensed character work, or does copyright exclude that possibility?

      Congrats! The calendar and poster are just divine, and it arrived in Australia really quickly! This has honestly been one of the most painless campaigns I've funded.
