I was hoping to make people interested in the idea by making these calendars as pretty and interesting as I could. Writing my own stories, illustrating them all.
Don't get me wrong please, I am not complaining or something. I just want to close it somehow by telling the story.
All the calendars will still be available for purchase with future dates.
Also I am not sure if I'll stop doing them, make one year break or maybe even still have something to offer this year even without a bigger project.
But I want to make things meaningful for people, not just for me so unless I'll hear about more interest from people I don't feel like I should continue.
Thank you everyone who bought my calendars in the past and who declared their interest and encouraged me or simply commented on my works. It was a very nice adventure and as I said I didn't decide to fully abandon it yet, just thinking of focusing on something else for the rest of this year and then I'll see.
Here are all the calendars:
Note to all my subscribers: Due to little interest there will be no Dragons, Princesses and Princes calendars this year.
There still might happen other calendars, I'll see.
And I'll finish this dragon for sure :) #moa
@deerbard I would love one, but at the moment I don't have any guarantee whether I could buy one or not. But I'd really love to get one in the future çç
Same as stickers or stuff like that
Thx for your will anyway. That shows me something too. See the last toot in the thread about calendars for the details.
@deerbard I bought some multipurpose paper recently. 3 reams (1500 sheets) cost CA$19.47+shipping and tax at Amazon. Not a horrible price, I guess.
@flutergork Sounds good, but still tells me nothing about the future situation in printing house in Poland :D I have no idea, do you also experience paper crisis in America now?
Would you be interested? I don't know I always wanted these to exist only in the physical world.
@deerbard i personally wouldn't buy a physical calendar for a practical reason - currently i live out of my suitcase most of the time. But a digital solution in form of a wallpaper could be a cool way to support an artist 🤗
Digital art can definitely be a way for some additional income, especially if you already have a fanbase.
It looks I don't really have it :D People are not that much of fans of these calendars ;) I should just probably change direction finally.
@deerbard my friend who's an illustrator does personalized watercolors from photos for different occasions (weddings, birthdays), also does art on walls in ppls homes, book illustrations, postcards, she did calendars too i think 🤔
Maybe these ideas might help with a new direction 🤗
But building a brand and getting clients is tricky i suppose.
@deerbard The mastodon client clipped a drawing in a way which made me think, in the very first second, that this is a picture of tatooed "dragon", if you get my drift. Only after I saw it was drawn by you I went back to the picture and realised the first impression was hilariously wrong illusion.
Hah wasn't it more caused by the color and texture of the background that might look like skin?
@deerbard the Art style you using remembers me a bit of Felix Colgrave. 😏
Thx for your interest. Did you see a toot about potential prices in the thread? Currently I'm considering not doing it but if I get few more hard declarations I'm going to change my mind about it.
@deerbard Thanks for pointing me further up the thread. I am very interested, but I don't know where I will be at in November. I suspect by the time currency is converted + shipping to Australia, that might make it prohibitive for me (not that I don't think it is worth it, it's simply that around November/December I'm going to be super tight for funds). I wonder if you would consider digital files for local print? Or maybe a service like redbubble?
I absolutely understand, if I'd want to buy all the art that is worth buying I'd have to be a millionaire, not a starving artist type :D
Yeah I normally was selling only physical copies but I'd gladly do the exception for you if I was making it this year (still doesn't look like it). I'll let you know if anything changes.
I don't know about Redbubble, never tried setting it up.
