As a calendar publisher, each December and January we party like it’s 1999…. er… well actually we party like it’s 2014 or 2015. Oh shoot, you know what I mean ☺
We get super excited to share our new calendars and send them all over the world for people to enjoy.

So like at any great party, we have some fun things to share… Continue reading
Featured Artist: Travis Bone is the founder and creative force behind the poster and illustration studio Furturtle Show Prints. As Bone puts it, “the weird state of Utah” is home and a constant inspiration for his iconic imagery. Bold yet economical use of color and line work reminiscent of hand-carvings abound in his sometimes dark, often whimsical illustrations. Although Furturtle Show Prints is known worldwide for hand-printed posters that often feature bands that a few people have heard of, Bone is a prolific creator of logos, snowboard and ski graphics, labels for bottles, drawings for clothing, and all manner of illustrations for myriad purpose.
Featured Artist: Denise Gallagher draws incessantly and loves to make beautiful things. She has been recognized for her talents by such esteemed organizations as Print magazine, Communication Arts magazine, and the Society of Illustrators. Gallagher’s work has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the US. Her images provide glimpses of a mysterious tale that has yet to be written. Seemingly random objects become deeply meaningful and infused with magic. Gallagher’s work is meandering, mysterious, and never mundane. www.denisegallagher.com
Feature Artist: Renée Locks is a painter, calligrapher and poet. She taught Western calligraphy for ten years before devoting herself to the sumi-e brush and shodo – the way of writing beautifully. Locks is inspired by ancient Asian calligraphy, especially by the Japanese Kansai style of writing, which is executed rapidly and without lines. She describes it as “like walking a tightrope between control and freedom, mind focused as a straight arrow, from top of head through the brush, no hesitation.” She paints on 300-year-old rice paper and grinds her own ink with an ink stick and water on a special stone. www.reneelocks.com
