I was sitting at home one night doing some freelance design work when the idea hit me. And I couldn't stop laughing. Dragons having sex. Yes. Dragons having sex. I don’t know where or how or why it crept into my head but it did. And then I thought to myself,
“Self...wouldn't it be hilarious if you could buy a calendar with these beautifully designed pieces of art depicting dragons having sex?”
And the more I thought about it, the answer that I kept coming back to was
That night my idea was born. The Dragon Sex Calendar. The perfect gag gift for the geek, nerd, fantasy-lore enthusiast, and lover of subversive humor in all of us. And that’s what this project is. A ridiculous calendar with 12 pieces of artwork--each piece depicting a pair of dragons in the act of copulation.
I've got to be honest; for the first few months I kept telling myself how stupid this idea was & how it’d never sell. And then one day, a friend recommended I read Steven Pressfield's, "The War of Art." This quote from his book really sparked a fire inside of me:
“Remember the one rule of thumb: the more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.”
So I just went for it. I've spent the last year and a half I've been communicating with artists, designing the catalog and this website. And this is the end result. The culmination of a year and a half of hard work. This is my baby--my strange baby and I truly hope you, the discerning purveyor of all things fantasy and dark-humor-ish, like what you see.
