Calendar Rejects
posted: November 11, 2008
For the past 26 years I have been looking over my past year's sketchbooks to pick 12 images with which to make a calendar. It's a thankless job. I would much rather be drawing than self editing and whipping a bunch of extremely rough sketches into a promo piece that must attain a certain degree of professionalism. I just finished the process and I feel good about it and anxious to get back into the business of making images. Here are a bunch of images that didn't make it onto this year's calendar which I thought had some degree of merit.

The dog with the ipod headphones has to make the calendar. I'm still laughing!

I like the sub-atomic relationship traces! There's only one Hal Mayforth, that's for sure.
