It's about that time again for the fourth annual Baby Bestiary Calendar!
And this year our calendar will be illustrated by Travis Hanson!!


The Baby Bestiary

Created by Andreas Walters, the Baby Bestiary is a celebration of the adorable, featuring your favorite RPG monsters. 
We have so far launched 2 books, 3 calendars and have made shirts, a coloring book, magnets and even stickers! 

 

 

The Artist: Who's Travis

My names Trav- and I am an artist, gamer and dreamer. I have been creating books and illustrations for 20 years. Past books and current series that I am working on are Life of the Party: Realities of an RPG'er, Tanner Jones and the Quest for the Monkey Stone, The Bean (an Eisner nominated webcomic series), Adventures for a Lazy Afternoon and many more. I love Kickstarter and how it has been able to help me and other illustrators create some fantastic projects. 

 This Years Calendar

Due to a busy con schedule that Travis has had, we've nailed down most of the calendar in design so that he could get cranking on all the pieces without delay. We left a few gaps that we can fill in, and we would love to have your input on those final two pieces!

The list is not in any particular order

  • 1. Griffons in a nest 
  • 2. Owlbears playing in the armor of adventurers 
  • 3. Rust Monster & Dwarf 
  • 4. Kirin & Kitsune, Hayao Miyazaki tribute piece 
  • 5. Hydra & Lizardfolk  running in the woods
  • 6. Balrog & Warlock for tea
  • 7. Cthulu & Cultist 
  • 8. Couatl & Paladin 
  • 9. Dragon Turtle & Hippocampus
  • 10. Phoenix and snowfall
  • 11. Fairy ring with a young fairy, fairy dragon and young myconid and baby treant
  • 12.TBD
  • Cover.  TBD

Stretch Goals

We'll let you decide! In the past, we have done desk calendars, refrigerator magnets, and stickers.

Risks and challenges

We've done 4 of these calendars so far so we've got the beat and rhythm down. That said, we can't always outside disasters (last year an entire order never made it to Australia, to which we just had to refund all affected backers).
