Zombies. Superflu epidemic. Solar radiation. Alien invasion. Nuclear war. Robot rebellion. Giant meteor. Bieber Fever...

We don't know exactly how the world will end, but we do know when: December 21, 2012. We know this because the Mayans told us so 5,000 years ago. To pre-commemorate this historic occasion, we asked 12 different artists to imagine it for us. Then we put those 12 images together and made it into a calendar.

These artists include Jay Ryan, Zander Cannon, Jenny Frison, Steve Seeley, Maris Wicks, Chandler O'Leary, Ryan Browne, Thomas Quinn, Dan Hertzberg, Sean Dove, Matt Moore, and Nick Pitarra. Some images are cute. Others, not so much. But all are done with skill and wit that should brighten your final days. 

The date portion of the calendar features a daily list of significant events and accomplishments that happened during the human era of earth, as well as the date of birth of some of the greatest humans ever to roam the planet (and maybe even you, see rewards to the right).

The calendar is large at 11 x 17 so that you can appreciate the detail of each image and have plenty of room to write yourself reminder notes to get more cases of bottled water for your secret bunker. 

The funds raised will go toward paying for the printing/manufacturing of the calendar as well as the shipping costs.

Below are some of the images you can look forward to throughout the year.
