Daily Tear-off Calendar, the Animation

One of the rewards for my Kickstarter campaign is a daily tear-off calendar, with a lie from Definitely True: Year One on each page of the calendar. It’s actually at the printer being made right now (woohoo!). One of the fun things about a tear-off calendar is that it’s built exactly like a simple flipbook. So I couldn’t resist adding a little animation to the bottom of each page. The problem, though, is that I’m a bit impatient. I kind of want to see what the calendar is going to look like now. I don’t want to wait for the printer to finish it and ship it to me.

So, like any rational person, I took the pages that I laid out and made a 3D model of the calendar. Then I rigged it and animated it. Have a look-see:

Of course, this means I also need to step up and get the website finished. (always something to get done!)

But, I’m only having 10 of these calendars printed for the Kickstarter campaign. Two of them have already been claimed. We’re still trying hard to reach the 100 ISBN stretch goal of $575, so if you know anyone who’d like one of these calendars (or you want one yourself), you know what to do!

And again, I definitely need to express my gratitude to everyone who’s supported this project so far. I can’t express how much it means to me. Thank you.
