2009 in Belkis

When talking about Next year, I like to start with the fact that I was able to assist in assembling a very cool calendar of fantasy art. Yep, I’m no artist (even though I do play one on TV), but I did help handle the editorial chores on one that is out now, and should be on display all of next year.

Earlier this year I had the unique pleasure to work with Fellow CAGer James Rodriguez. James, in addition to his stellar work on Quantum: Rock of ages with Philip Clark, James has begun publishing his own comic The Chronicles Of Sara. Still, as much as I want to to talk about those comics (and, trust me, I will), I’m more interested, right now, in discussing the NovaStar Studios Fantasy Illustrated Calendar, featuring Belkis. (Wow, that’s a mouthful!)

James, gathered together a bunch of other top-flight NY illustrators to produce a dynamite calendar for 2009. Each artist got to illustrate the always-lovely Belkis. As for my part, I not only wrote the bios for the various illustrators, but I provided James with moral support and a bit of production help early on in the process.

I was grateful to James for allowing me to assist him in this wonderful endeavor. So I want to take this opportunity to let you know that if you are in the market for a 2009 calendar (and right about now, who isn’t?) I strongly suggest that you contact James and purchase one for yourself. The calendar cost a mere $20.00 (which includes Shipping and Handling). So head over to James’ site and get a better look at the imagery on the calendar.

Dude, I totally assure you that, yes, Belkis is very much a real person, and if you think that she looks good in these illustrations, you should see her up close and in personal in the (ahem) flesh.
