Hello Human!

I've been painting my cat Petunia for quite a while, and she's had enough. 

So, this year, I wanted to paint YOUR cats.  I've spent twelve months in the studio, painting kitties from around the globe.

Okay, just kidding.  No one actually submitted a tiger.

But people from around the world DID submit some really wonderful kitties!

Thank you, everyone, for the wonderful felines! You kept me busy.

Small kitties, extra-large kitties, shy kitties, extra in-charge kitties.

With everyone's help, this has grown a beautiful and collaborative project, and I want to share these Indigo Kitties you.  I'd love to make another calendar, but I need Your help!  

Professional Printers like big numbers, and that's why I need you.

"I'd love to help, but I really need to nap."
"I'd love to help, but I really need to nap."

Our goal is the printer's minimum of 100 calendars, which would be about $2500, including materials, shipping and packaging.  

With your help, we could get this project off the ground!

Why does the world need more cats? 

An Indigo Watercolor Kitty.

Because, when you live with a cat, they teach you things.   

Such as:  Take time for yourself, every day.

"This foot won't clean itself!"
"This foot won't clean itself!"

And,

It's okay to rest.

"A good nap is very productive."
"A good nap is very productive."

But, 

don’t be afraid to ask for what you want!

"Heyo, a little food in the dish please??"
"Heyo, a little food in the dish please??"

Remember, the best policy is to be yourself.

"Myself is a bit Grumpy today, thanks."
"Myself is a bit Grumpy today, thanks."

After all, it’s the heart that counts.

"Everybody knows that."
"Everybody knows that."

I'd love to share another year of Indigo Kitties, but I can't do it without you.

 About Me

"Hi my name is Alex and I hope you like cats."
"Hi my name is Alex and I hope you like cats."

I love to paint animals, especially ones with a special spirit. About a year ago, wonderful Kickstarter people just like you helped me get back on my feet. You can read about that here.

Your support will keep me painting throughout the year.  So, thanks in advance!
        If you can, please share this project with anyone who might have an interesting and furry friend I’d like to paint. Thanks!  

Wishing you Peace & Kittens,

Risks and challenges

I have worked with my printer for eight previous editions, and so I am confident that the product will be of the highest quality. I have plenty of experience packaging and shipping art from running my online shop, and I hope to ship these lovely calendars and prints to you in December, without a hitch!

Most packages will ship First-Class, and come with a notification email and tracking for those overseas. If for some reason there is an issue with your reward, I will work with you until the problem is solved! Usually there's some funny business around the holidays, but I have buffered in enough time to make sure YOU get your GIFT. Which is the most important thing. :)
