Post subject:  AI Community Calendar 2008 -- FINISHED

Update: eos and I have decided to open this project back up. Mainly, because we just want a sweet calendar for the new year. This time around, you can submit a design or a sweet photo that you took. So it's a design/photography calendar. We have agreed if we get no more interest besides are selves that we will just come up with the designs/photography but hopefully we can get a few people interested.

We need 13 users to reserve a month to make a design for. The month that you chose doesn't need to be the month of your birthday, but if you want, that's fine too. We need 13 designs/photography for this years calendar, one for each month plus the cover. We will be doing it through Cafepress again so we don't have to worry about inventory. The final calendar will be the same price as last year, $17.99.

RULES

- DON'T sign up if you can't make the deadline. (Dec 31st)
- Cover: 11 x 8.5 in.
- Months: 11 x 8.5 in.
- Full Bleed: 11.5 x 9 in. (trimmed on calendar to 11 x 8.5 in.)
- Do not put the name of the month anywhere on the design.
- Other text may be used throughout the design
- Save the psd in case of any small changes (REQUIRED!!)
- You must sign up in this thread before you make the design. FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE
- Make your design at AT LEAST 200 dpi
- Your design does not have to correlate to the month, however, it can.

Hopefully everyone that was, will, then we'll only need to come up with a few....Mullinix for October. I'll email Caroline incase she doesn't see this right away. I think her design is pretty much done anyways except if she adds to it.

i'll still do february then . . and if needed i'll do another but would rather just do one - lots of end of semester homework to do! ahh

Post subject: 

nice... we'll need these asap... so whenever you get a chance maybe inbetween your homework... if you need to take a little break or something... that'd be great...


and also a reminder to everyone participating:
let's try to keep these up scale... and high end designs... not too much filter usage please... thanks :)

deadline is the 31st.. but it'd be nice to have it complete before xmas... cuz people tend to 'forget' (myself included) after the holidays have passed.

I like it - something w/the X's on the left - wasn't so sure, but then I keep getting drawn back over there and then I think it does kind of work for me. - overall, pretty cool IMO

I really like that drawing, Mullinix. Pretty detailed and very abstract. Two things that I like seeing in drawings.
