Why? Because someone who knows told me "the money is not at art galleries, the money is at Amazon."
Here is a rough of the general inner page layout. Still messing with it, going to add dates, moon phases, but no holidays, artists don't get holidays.

"no holidays, artists don't get holidays"

Oh, so only artists should buy it?

No, artists don't have money. We are indentured servants....

Will this be available on Amazon UK?

I am probably going through a publisher, so I would guess it would be. Or I could certainly arrange that it was some how available.

Mars moon phases?? ;)

I find the slanted oval date spaces very distracting.
My eye keeps being drawn down to them and away from the art.
No easy task 'cuz the image is very intriguing!

I do like the font choices!!
(well I can't see what's in the blue....)

Oh, I hadn't thought of that!

I don't want to do just a grid, I had a Star Trek calendar in the 1970's that was similar, the oval design is an homage to that.

It's coming together pretty well, I have enough material all ready, just rendering it bigger.
