I am using Kickstarter (for the 3rd time!) to raise funds for my 2017 Literary Cats Calendar, a collection of my recent paintings available for gift-giving and keeping! Calendars are practical throughout the year, and I’ve designed the images to be easily frameable after each month has passed. :)
You can view the project here on Kickstarter… and make a pledge!
I have funded two previous calendars through the generous support of pre-orders on Kickstarter. This year, I am trying something a bit new:
I have two current versions of the calendar available: a US/Canadian version, with weeks beginning on Sunday, and featuring major North American holidays …. and a new European version, with weeks beginning on Monday, and including all major holidays for the European Union and UK.
**There is also an Australian/New Zealand calendar in the works!**
I am designing this calendar myself, and it will be printed here in the United States, by the same company which fulfilled my first two orders.
This will be a Limited Edition printing of calendars, individually signed & numbered by me.
My plan is to order 200 N.American and 50 European calendars, and the remaining calendars will be available for purchase ($20) here on my website, in my Etsy shop, and from me personally at shows.
Of course, I need to reach my initial funding goal to be able to afford to place this large order. I have several exclusive Kickstarter Reward packages to offer, which include a brand new product! Coloring Pages!
There are still Early Bird deals available. People are using this opportunity to shop for early holiday gifts! :)
The Custom Portrait Reward especially makes a great gift idea for a cat lover! This pledge tier is for a commission in my line of Flower Fairy Cats, where you get to decide the breed of cat & details!
I will be completing two new paintings specifically for this calendar. One will be a winter themed portrait, based on the classic tale “Little Women”, for the month of December. I will also be painting a Roaring Twenties/Great Gatsby inspired lavish party scene to celebrate New Year/January.
Campaign backers will get a backstage pass to watch my time-lapse videos, and see the creation of these two portraits.
I hope you will consider backing this project, and sharing it with your friends! Your support is greatly appreciated!

Still several hours' worth of painting ahead, but "Beauty & the Beast" is beginning to come to life. http://ift.tt/2q8tPQx
