As many of you might already know, this platform has facilitated the production of my calendar projects for the last two years. The purpose of this Kickstarter is to fund the printing of the calendar through the collection of pre-orders.
Printing can be very expensive so I rely heavily on your support to make these calendar projects become a reality for me (and you!). It has been an absolute pleasure making the last two calendars and would give me such joy to do it again this year.
While the theme feels a bit vague right now, this new project will reflect the kind of work I do most often. I will be creating a narrative by re-imagining some of my more meaningful drawings in watercolour. This narrative will flow throughout the calendar from January to December and will dive deep into the ocean and reach far beyond the stars. The narrative may come across in a subtle way, or it may become more obvious as we move through the year.

Here are some details of what the calendar will look like:
- Printing is done on beautiful linen textured card stock from an environmentally friendly printshop based in Montreal.
- Wire-O binding
- Each calendar will come with a signed limited edition 5x7 print. The image that will printed has not been chosen yet.
- Calendar is approximately 13in x 8.5in
- Available in both French and English (you will be asked which language you prefer in the surveys at the end if this project gets its funding)
If you have any requests for pledges (different combinations or quantities) - please message me! I would be more than happy to add additional pledge option to suit your needs.
Risks and challenges
My goal is that you receive your calendar and print orders in time for the holidays. I will work my hardest to avoid any setbacks and find solutions to anything that may prevent me from hitting this deadline..
I am using a printshop that I have had a great working relationship with for the past 7 years on a number of different projects. However, as is the case when working with third parties, unforeseen challenges can arise. Rest assured that I will keep funders informed of any changes throughout the process.
