A Special Calendar

Hi Everyone! I think I promised you a special project that I had in the works right? Well, this is indeed very special to me as my sis drew all of these characters! I love her! Asked her to send me some old designs she had done previously so that I could make them into a calendar for an upcoming craft fair. My original request was for some bunnies since next year is Year of the Rabbit. Then it expanded and expanded and she ended up sending me all of the characters so I could make a full calendar. Here's the calendar as a whole... Jan-June on one side and July-Dec on the other side... I made them in their order beginning with Year of the Rabbit since that's 2011. I know you can't see all of the images, so I took individual photos of each month for you to get a better look... Thank you so much sis! You are da best!!! Made this calendar especially for you, so I'll be sending it to our dear old bro's house so you can pick it up on your trip. I'm making more projects using her designs that I'll share soon. I'd appreciate any feedback you can give me on this project and/or my sister's designs, so please leave me a comment with your thoughts. No need to sugar coat your comments- honest feedback is appreciated! Thank you!

OMGoodness Jenny! NO sugar coating here! Your sister's drawings of these characters are so cute and adorable! Luv the reds, blacks, and golds too. These will definitely be a sell out for sure! Luv that you colored all of them too.

Hi Everyone!

I want to post my comments too, because I like a lot what Jenny did! She's really talented – I remember I thought the same thing when her sister showed me what she was doing when I first met her 13 years ago...wow, time flies!

And allow me to thank you for all the great comments on Denise's art. Though I am Denise's number-1 fan, that's not because I am her husband, but because I think she's really good! I am usually quite objective – ask Denise when she's getting my criticism after showing me her stuff... :)

All your comments are encouraging us to think about the possibility of working on Asian/Hawaiian lines to sell...well, let's see what happens.

Thanks to Jenny for using the images: her talent and her work really gave much more value to them! Jenny, you are the best! I am sure your craft fair will be a success!

Ciao, Jenny, ottimo lavoro, continua così!
