San Franthropomorphism 2012 Calendar

San Franthropomorphism calendar front cover

In 2011, I decided to do a personified take on the classic pretty-pictures-of-San-Francisco-landmarks calendar. This meant twelve drawings of famous vistas, with my personified landmark characters in place of the actual structure. The actual calendar pages also included important dates in San Francisco history. A successful Kickstarter campaign meant I was able to get nice printed copies, which were sold through this page, and in several stores around San Francisco, in late 2011.

In retrospect, I should’ve tried to print something that would last more than a year. I may try to do something a little more long-lasting in hard copy with these characters in the future. But this was still a fun project, and now that I’m not trying to actually sell any copies anymore, I can actually put all of the artwork online.

These were all drawn between August and October of 2011. They’re colored predominantly in marker, though I filled in the sky in Photoshop in many of them.

    Sorry I wasn’t able to hook up with the group this past weekend… from your twitter it sounds like you had a blast.

    I’m looking for a BUY IT RIGHT FREAKING NOW button for the calendar… Should I use the orders email above?

    Thanks!

      Sorry you missed the meetup! It was a lot of fun! I’m hoping we can pull something like that together again when I’m next in town in a few weeks.
      I hope to get the BUY NOW ZOMG! button up tonight! Still trying to decide whether to set up fancy shopping cart software, or the good old PayPal route. I should probably do the latter while debating the former!
      At any rate, emailing the listed address is a good thing to do! I will email back as soon as I get something set up.

      If you actually did go order it right then, though, the order didn’t come through on my end.
