2019 Calendar cover – more than twice!

Got the 2019 Bob calendar cover finished faster that I anticipated.  Seems funny to pt so much work into something most people will only see twice: once when the put the calendar up and once when they take it down.  But, hey… it keeps me off the streets, right?

Would you like to see this more than twice?  Why not buy a print of it?  You can check it out at Society6 by clicking or tapping here.  20% off + free shipping on this item with code 20PLUSFS ends tonight, October 11th at midnight PT!

Bob Calendar 2019 – cover progress…

It’s that time of year again.  Every year I marvel at how fast calendar time creeps up on me.  It happens every year and yet I still treat it as something unexpected.

In keeping with Bob calendar tradition, the cover pays homage to cartoonist Bill Watterson’s masterpiece of a comic strip Calvin and Hobbes.

Here is the cover as a work-in-progress.  It’s ink on bristol.  Bill Watterson was/is a very traditional cartoonist so I keep the coloring non-digital. I start with markers and do accents with gouache and colored pencil.  I like all the covers that I’ve done… but I think this one is already special.

Here are the covers from previous years…

I’m hoping to complete the inside calendar art soon.  I’ll keep everyone posted when the calendar will be available for purchase.

CANDY CORN MADNESS Winner#1 – Candycorn Sunflower

Thank you to everyone for your CANDY CORN MADNESS entries.  The first winner is… no one.  So many people entered a candy corn sunflower/flower that it wouldn’t be fair to pick just one person.  But, for so many people to submit this the idea HAS to be good, right?
