The 2015 Fantastical Beasts
& Beings Calendar
printed, with hole for hanging, 8.5"x11" wide.
Artist Commentary: This is the first ever "Fantastical Beasts & Beings" calendar. Within, you'll find full colour painting images from my Middle-earth, Narnia, and Fairy Tale-inspired galleries, as well as sketches of the beasts and beings depicted each month. Ranging from dragons, to mermaids, to naiads, to dryads to demons, unicorns, wizards, elves, and halflings, each month depicts a different magical clan or creature.
This calendar marks moon phases, solstices and equinoxes, and international holidays. It also includes, for each month, a quote about the peoples or creatures so depicted, from authors including Shakespeare, T.S. Eliot, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Gerard Manley Hopkins, and many more. The back cover of the calendar also includes a previously unpublished short story "teaser" for a series of tales to come. This vignette is unnamed, but the series will be called "The Framerunners", and more details will soon become available regarding this series at www.TheFramerunners.com.
All calendars are signed by the artist. Please include text with your order if you'd like your calendar to be personalized (e.g., "To Arwen").
