With your help, Seven Deadly Sins of a Cat 2013 WALL CALENDAR will be the first print publication for my creative group Twyst Design . The debut of The Feline Comedy series features PET PHOTOGRAPHY  dedicated to all loving pets (and their owners) out there.

This project features photographs of my cat Tabby Hitchhike, a very social and friendly orange tabby, along with a cast of cute cats & kitties all over the world!

Since Dante Alighieri wrote his novel The Divine Comedy introducing us to the seven deadly sins, many literary pieces and movies has reinvented this concept (a popular example is Se7en movie starring Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman).  This time - in a very-lighthearted twist - 2013 Seven Deadly Sins of a Cat reinvents Dante's seven deadly sins as seen through the eyes of the cute lovable feline creatures.

I LUV cats - LUV designing - LUV to laugh! 

Your pledges will fund the printing of this project that I am very passionate about.

Ok, ok, ok.  Is this another traditional boring calendar?  Hell, NO!

Aside from the laughter-n-smile-filled photos, this calendar/monthly planner includes the following: 

  • 13-months planner printed in high-quality cardstock paper
  • moon phases (symbolized with 4-paws icons)
  • Chinese astrological year each month. 
  • features major holidays and notable events for USA & Canada
  • also includes Christian/Jewish events
  • an amusing array of cat and pet holidays throughout 2013

Do you know when is National Cat Day?  Do you know when is Hug-your-Cat Day, or National Pet Day, or Pet Owners Independence Day?  How about Hug-Your-Cat day?  This calendar is  a monthly reminder of the special events you and your pet can do together. 

Month of June 2013

2-page spread for each month - each page is 11" x 8.5".  Images will be printed on high-quality glossy cardstock paper suitable for writing.

Your pledges will fund the short digitally-run printing of the calendars (costing ~$2K).  This price does not include the creative labor of the project nor any incidental expenses incurred during the publication process. (I just would like the calendar printed and give the backers smiles and laughter by rewarding you with actual product).

This is my first time in Kickstarter and what I essentially would like to happen to get this dream project come into fruition.   Depending on your pledge, find out what kind of feline lover you are ...

Risks and challenges

The calendar has been designed and already compiled in a digital file. Making this monthly calendar/planner to be comedic, creative and UNIQUE from existing cat calendars are very important.

Printing is expensive and getting the 100% of the Kickstarter funding is essential to completing this project.

The toughest part of this project will be distribution. I hope that we reach a whole lot of audience after the initial printing.
