About

    Since as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with the fantastical.  As a child my head was always in the clouds, and I would spend hours a day dreaming up worlds of magic and mystery.  It has always been a core passion of mine, and my main pursuit as an artist has always been to bring  to life those worlds that we create within ourselves.

   The Zodiac Creatures is a series that has allowed me to start developing and fleshing out my world more fully.  Though these creatures are inspired by the traditional Zodiac signs, they are not the classical depictions that we are so used to.  I have taken their core aspects and created all new fantastical creatures to represent the signs that are unique and exciting yet stay true to their fundamental essence.  

An example of what an open spread of the calendar will look like.
An example of what an open spread of the calendar will look like.

 
               Each spread of the Calendar will feature a full color illustration of one of the Zodiac Creatures, as well as large date boxes to allow ample room to write reminders.  Individual pages will be 8.5" x 11", and will measure 17"x 11" when opened.  The calendars will be saddle stitch to remain flush to the wall when hung, and will feature a soft touch cover and gloss coated interior pages which provides a beautiful sheen but does not hinder writing.

COVER VOTE: Every pledge to this campaign will get one vote toward which of the lucky Zodiac Creatures will get to adorn the cover of the Calendar!  The winner of the cover vote will be announced after the campaign ends, and might even be featured on a bonus reward if we hit a certain stretch goal! 

(Frame and Mat not included.)

 Each of the Zodiac Creatures was intricately painted with the utmost attention paid to detail and finish so that these paintings could be available as high quality prints.
 

These prints are Archival Quality on beautiful 100% cotton matte paper.  They measure 11"x14" which includes a 3/4" surrounding border for easy matting and framing.
 

Each design belongs to a limited run of only 50 prints, and once they are sold out they will never be printed in this format again.  These Limited Edition prints are signed and numbered within the lower border of each print by the Artist, and come with a Certificate of Authenticity. 

Though the general pledge tiers are listed on the side of this campaign, we realize that some backers might desire different reward combinations that are not listed here. You can increase your pledge by the above amounts to receive additional rewards, or you will be able to purchase add-ons after the campaign has ended when you are sent your exit survey.  

 If we reach these goals, the following features will be added to all pledges of $20 or more.

$4,000 (UNLOCKED!) - A Thank you page added to the calendar with the names of all the people who pledged toward the Zodiac Creature calendar and brought this project to life.

$4,500 (UNLOCKED!) - A beautiful Postcard of one of the Zodiac Creatures (whichever one wins the cover vote).

$5,000 (LOCKED) - A Wynret sticker (pictured below).

Risks and challenges

There are not a lot of risks involved with this project. All the artwork is done so there will be no delays on my part. We will be using the same printer as the Zodiac Fae calendar and as a result we have experience and confidence in the production times and quality of the manufacturer. The only set back that can really occur is if there is some unforeseen issue with the printing, but we will be getting hard proofs during the process so we should be able to catch and rectify anything off before putting the entire run into production.
