2013 calendar again

After some e-mail discussion, the boss and I hashed out some ideas for my 2013 calendar, and they are below.

The boss is working on ideas for art for the different months of the year, and perhaps a centerfold pin-up. Roughly, here's the ideas for each month (Note: This may change!):

January: New Year
February: Valentine's Day
March: St Patrick's Day
Special art, perhaps of a character and his/her bio not yet presented anywhere else.
April: Easter/spring related (Easter is March 31)
May: Mother's Day, with image of Lucky with her son
June: Summer/beach theme
Centerfold - large full body art, perhaps in flight or other dramatic superhero pose
July: 4th of July patriotic theme
August: vacation theme
September: Labor Day/cookout theme
Special art, perhaps of a character and his/her bio not yet presented anywhere else.
October: Halloween
November: Thanksgiving/harvest theme
December: Christmas

We also toyed with the idea of sponsors, perhaps some comic companies or Facebook groups who might be interested in being in my calendar.

There is also the matter of how to get the calendar printed. One place the boss checked gave a price close to $20 per calendar, which is more than what most people might be willing to pay for a little-known superhero character. Plus, that company also used a spiral center, and we want a stapled center for the centerfold. Finding a printer for the calendar is the most important part, and if that can't be managed for a decent price, then this calendar project may not get off the ground.

As for artists, I'm going to ask artists that we've used before, but I would also like new artists, so if any of you artists out there are willing to do some art for this, let me know and we can see what we can work out. Oh, along with sponsors, we will also give credit to all the artists and provide Internet addresses to whatever site they wished to link with other samples of their work.

That's all for now, but feel free to add your comments or observations as well.
