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!
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.
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?
Because, when you live with a cat, they teach you things.
Such as: Take time for yourself, every day.
It's okay to rest.
don’t be afraid to ask for what you want!
Remember, the best policy is to be yourself.
After all, it’s the heart that counts.
I'd love to share another year of Indigo Kitties, but I can't do it without you.
ABOUT YOUR GOODIES
If you'd like to support this project, we've got some nice options for you!
The 2019 Indigo Kitty Cat Calendar
The 2019 calendar is printed in the USA and features 12 full-color Indigo Kitties. Bound with paper twine and a wooden bead, these calendars are made with 100% natural materials, and fully recyclable! Yay.
Cut to the perfect size for any corner in your house, this calendar is sure to fit right in!
And if you need a little more color in your life, we've got that too!
Bonus Mini Prints!
As a huge Thank You for Your Awesomeness, Calendar Backers receive a FREE bonus print of your choosing! They are all signed as well, and come wrapped as a nifty gift. (But you can keep it for yourself…)
There are many choices to choose from:
Excellent for gifting (or for keeping for yourself), these 4"x4" Watercolor Kitties are printed in the USA and individually signed by the artist (that's me!). They also come packed in a plastic sleeve for safety.
And, just because I like you so so much, I am putting a surprise gift in with every package. So hold on to your socks.
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. :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
