THE COPING CALENDAR 2019 - PREORDER
The Coping Calendar 2019 is in progress and available for preorder throughout September. This year’s calendar feels like a significant shift in energy both visually and in the creative process itself. Feeling some growing pains artistically and personally as I struggle to balance the material world and its many demands with the dream world and its ever-breaking, ever-growing heart. Each year I set an intention to preserve the spirit of the original Coping Calendar - the feelings of care, connection, and gentleness - while asking myself to be courageous and wild with experimentation and play. It’s important to me that this project is always exploring, always changing, always a living thing. The Coping Calendar 2019 is still finding its way, but it already has a kind of humming glow I haven’t seen before, and I’m excited to discover what shape it takes as I continue to work on it.

When possible, I love offering my work on a sliding scale in order to increase access to my art and products, and it gives me particular joy to do so with *The Coping Calendar,* as it was my first big project as an illustrator and it nourishes me to know how meaningful people it is to friends and strangers across the globe.
I hope that you'll find patience with me as I imperfectly navigate the challenges of being an artist amidst capitalism; my intention is to find ways of pricing my work that feel fair and inclusive while also, increasingly, being able to sustain myself so that I can put more love and attention toward my work. During the preorder period, the sliding scale is $10-35. After the the preorder period the lowest price point will be $16. I'm so delighted to be able to offer these at such a wide range. The $10 price is meant for folks who feel they wouldn't otherwise be able to purchase a product like this. Please be conscious about that and refrain from buying a large number of calendars at this price point - it limits my ability to offer this option to folks who need it. Thank you so much for supporting my work and making it possible for me to continue creating and sharing! <3
These are preorders, so the calendar will not be printed until October. You can expect to receive yours in November at the earliest, and mid-December at the latest!
[In dark blues, blacks, and greens, a watery splattery cave-like backdrop fades into darkness. Handwritten text reading "Explore The Shadows" sits toward the bottom of the frame, illuminated in light yellow-beige lettering.]
[Against a pastel blue-green floral backdrop, a grey striped cat snuggles up in ball. On her furry back, handwritten text reads "Soften" in light blue lettering. The animal has a peaceful expression on her face.]
[Against a dark blue watercolor backdrop, a watercolor full moon (with rosey shadows) illuminates the center of the frame. On either side of it is handwritten text, in glowy cream lettering, that reads "Let it come" "let it go."]
[The backdrop is a dreamy, cloudy pastel watercolor with gold dripping upward. Handwritten text in dark green letters reads "Make Your Magic," with the final word hovering over a tendrilling philodendron plant emerging from the bottom of the frame in many shades of green.]
[Against a pinky-orange watercolor tile backdrop, a bucket of water is viewed from above, with a cluster of bubbles glimmering on the surface. In dark-brown, handwritten text the word "Refresh" floats on the surface of the water.]
[Against a misty starry-night watercolor backdrop, two yellow moths hover in the air next to a dark grey circle outlined in white dots. Inside the circle is handwritten text that reads "Find Your Light."]
