2014 Calendar Reveal #12: Christopher Paolini

PRE-ORDER THE CALENDAR HERE!  It’s here, finally! Photo 12, the month of December, the Ending: Christopher Paolini as Death! There are a few reasons why I saved Christopher’s photo for last. He’s Death. He’s December. He’s the last photo I shot, ironically. He was also the first author I asked to be a part of

PRE-ORDER THE CALENDAR HERE!  Today I’m bringing you the photo that was the most fun to shoot: Tad Williams as the Weather Mage!

Reflections on the Calendar Project

To go with the release of the pre-order I was asked to talk about this project from my point of view, and reflect on it now that I’m finished. There are a million things to say, and a million ways to start this post. But overall I think the perfect one is this: This has

2014 Calendar Reveal #3: Gregory Maguire

PRE-ORDER THE CALENDAR HERE!  Photo number three is my steampunk one, a la Gregory Maguire of Wicked fame: This photo evolved a lot. The initial idea was a clockwork librarian, sitting dusty and disused in the corner of some books somewhere. But to make it authentic I needed old books. I contacted the Boston Library, but

PRE-ORDER THE CALENDAR HERE!  Hey peeps, time for photo number 2: Brandon Mull in ‘Dragons for Sale’: I was so excited to have Brandon for this project, as his Fablehaven series is one of my all-time favorites.
