The sketch calendar
Fast away the old year passes! Hail the new, ye lads and lasses!
Also hail my first calendar!
I love calendars and planners as I have surely written about before. I keep a bullet journal. And I thought it would be fun to fit some of my sketches onto calendar month cards.
Hilarious experience putting it together. When I thought everything was in the bag I realized that in three different months, the days were off. Then I kept going back and forth about type faces. There are all these details you never think of.
Luckily having worked for years as a newspaper writer I have all kinds of safeguards in place. You learn to check everything out of necessity.
Here are some of the months lined up like the Rockettes.

Flush with success I added the calendar to the products at BuffaloDonut.com. I also put it in our Etsy store, Buffalo Donut.
May I take this opportunity to say I cannot believe how the year has flown. I cannot believe we are looking at 2020.
Here we are back in Eastern Standard Time, plunged into darkness! And we have already passed All Saints Day and All Souls Day. I heard a priest at church say once that at this time of year, the readings at Mass all turn to matters pertaining to the end of the world. It is a time of year that I confess, I love.
But it all goes so fast!
I will be using my new calendar before I know it!
