Hello guys,

Long time not being here. Anyway, I was woundering if anyone is going to be putting together a calander for 2009? No, I'm not asking because I'm interested in doing it. I have a pretty good collection going on, and I'd like to continue adding to it. And they just keep getting better and better. I know it's a big job, but I really hope you guys can make this happen again.

Thanks,

Rich

I'm sure there will be an '09 issue. (How's that for speaking on someone else's behalf?)

I get the feeling there will start to be a trickle of other club stuff now. We've got to finance our bid for the Nats.

Good to hear from you Rich.

Maybe we should have a calendar of drawings by Rich and some of the other artists in the club, along with a photo one.

LVJJ, exactly what I was thinking.

Yes we will be doing another calendar this year.
I was going to start a thread about the 09 calendar.
I have been thinking about doing some changes this year.

First and for most I need to know if Carl will help again this year.

I am also thinking about doing away with the voting system this year.I really believe we have more than 12 very good pictures to consider for our calendar.

I still want members to submit good pictures of there vans.I just want to do a little different format.I also need to talk to Carl about this format.

All in all its really up to the members here.

Sales where down for what ever reason last year.I have these calendars priced at the rock bottom for what I can get them for.

Maybe a different format will stimulate sales.

Wookee, I think that is a great idea. Naybe 3 or 4 people to select the pics. You probably have enough pics to get through to year 2012.

Rich Van Linkel
07-29-2008, 10:35 AM
Great, I'm glad to hear there is going to be another calander. as for the art thing, I just don't know if that can happen this year. Not enough time to get organized and get art work done. Maybe next year. Thanks guys.

I think it would be cool to see a junkyard scene of a bunch of old crusty 1st and 2nd gen vans "rusting in peace"... just for one of the months... or maybe on the back, or the very last page. I'm not sure where there is a stash of several vans like this.. but I think that would make a cool picture, maybe even a black & white photo for the emotion

It would be a nice touch for the 09' calender if each month fit, like xmas has a lighted tree in the background or january a photo of a van thats buried under snow or a spring month that has a nice shot of a van parked in a field of flowers, ect...
just a thought, my mind wanders alot, LOL

How about a half-month calendar..?
Two weeks one pic..SWITCH

Two pics each month = 24 chances to get your girl in this year.

Where can I send mine??

Wookee
07-30-2008, 06:31 AM
Rich, Carl has done work on some of your outstanding art work already.

We can include other artisit's work in the 09 calendar.All work submitted will need to be camera ready.Please try to keep lines and detaiuls as clean as possible.

Start getting you pictures together.Size matters as far as pictures go.The bigger the better.

We will Be letting every body know where to submitt pictures.

Hey Ken! I had my van up here at school a few weeks ago and was going to run it over and show you but it ended up raining the day I was going to shoot over and I ended up bringing it home and getting my car. But ANYTIME you want some help wrenching on juicy, or just someone to hand you tools or a beer let me know haha. I'd be more than happy to! http://www.vcvc.org/ubb/biggrin.gif

Ok I guess it's time to let the cat out of the bag.
As some of you might know, we have a couple of members on this site that have some great artistic ability.
These members along with Carl aka 69G20,the Viewmaster.Have come up with enough art work to cover all 12 pages of the 2009 calendar.
Here is a sneak peak of one page of the 2009 calendar!!!!!

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m199/wookeesvan/VCVC%20%20photos/High_road_20096.jpg

The last year our sales where way down.
This year I hope our nasty economy does not kill this annual project off.

We are trying hard to keep the price down.
It looks like this years calendar will cost $20.00.This will include shipping to the US and Canada.We will also accept Pay Pal this year.

I am trying to see how many members will be interested in a calendar this year.
We will also be sending out E Mails to announce this years calendar.....

reply here or send me an E Mail to.......

wookee10358@yahoo.com

Thanks in advance......

Hey guys,

This is a great responce, and I'm just as excited as you are to see the finished product. I think it is only fair to let you guys know who all is involved in this project. There are 4 artists, Rich Sjoberg (VANagain), Kent Talley (KLTcustoms),James McGrory (xjamesx), and myself. Each artist took 3 months and did their own thing, with one common element.(and I'm not talking about just the vans). Carl Giustozzi (69G20)is like the editor. He is doing some color and all the other computer stuff to get the renderings ready for print. And Joe Russin (Wookee) is the guy doing all the printing, distribution, and sales. Thanks for making this all worthwhile.
Rich L.

11-28-2008, 09:18 PM
I was just loggin on to post that Rich Van Linkel got this whole project started and i appreciate the other 3 artists hard work and of course, Carl and Wookee, for their work on gettin these out to everyone. (Rich beat me to the post) and I apologize if my accident/injuries held the production up at all. but i definitely put everything i had left into my 3 drawings. Thanks for everyones patience. I, for one, cant wait to hang mine up at my shop when i can return to work.

This is just another thing that makes this cyber club so COOL.
It's nor too often that you get a chance to work on a project involving different people from different parts of the country.
The passion we all have towards our vans and this Club shows through.

I will be answering every body who has replyed to this post and your E Mails.

There is still a little more work that has to be done.......

Guys, my van has been a 'pin-up of the month' twice, but I have to say that I like this calender the best yet. I think it is great to reconize some of the true artist in our group. We are such a diversified group that we didn't have to go to an outside source to find talents worthy of publishing. Thanks to all you guys for your artistic efforts and your love of early vans. I will proudly post my calender and will likely be buying frames for each month to hang in my garage.

I have a handle on this Pay Pal situation.
We will accept pay pal using a Credt Card
You do have to send me an E Mail to my Yahoo account and I Will respond with where to send the Pay Pal funds to.

Carl was right the calendars look better in print than they do in the slide show.

The first batch is going out in todays mail.

Okay guys, now that it looks like most of you have your calanders, it's time to reveal a little spin we added to the renderings.
Each month, with the exception of three, has a hidden icon in each drawing. It's a peace sign. Some are very easy to spot, while others are very hard to find. Some are big, and some are very small. Let's see how many you can find. Have fun.

There are a few members out there that sent inquiries that I have not heard back from.

There where a couple that did not get a reply from my Yahoo account for what ever reason.

This is an open ended ordering situation.

To be honest with the tough economy out there,it's great we have sold as many as we have so far.

It's not too late if you want a 2009 calendar send an E Mail to:

Iím quite happy with the way they come out in print! If any one is on the fence about buying one just do it, youíll be happy you did. We really took advantage of some of our great artist with the work they donated. It was an honor to help put this together, especially with xjamesxís drawings after his motorcycle accident. I was having a blast trying to color and shade them for him. I learned a lot from Vanagain on that. You can see the different styles of the artist like the character that Rich Van Linkel puts in his, and how Vanagain slightly exaggerates the details like door handles and such. Then there is kltcustoms with an almost perfect perspective mechanical drawing with a warped reflection below it. I only colored one of his because I wasnít sure how to do the other two.
I donít know if another calendar can match or be done like this one.
We barely pulled this one off in time, and that was done by Wookee working his charm with the print shop.
Like Greg suggested I hope to frame all of the drawings.
p. s. only the drawings by kltcustoms donít have a peace sign. http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/9189/3dpeace4bx3.gif

The only way that you can get them there faster is to send them either priority(3 days) or express mail (next day)but it will also cost you more to ship.

Mailed Dec10th probobly reached the border by the 13th and then Canada post had it for 25 days only. They must be speeding things up at Canada post. Its been said that cost to post things in Canada are high due to the storage fees Ha HA!!

I went back and double checked my paper work.
It took 19 days for the calendars to get to Western Canada.......
It did cost a little more to send them there this year.
Glad to hear they finally arrived.

The sales numbers are still down this year.
I am a little short of the numbers I sold this time last year.
Unfortunatly I will not be able to make the Cof C's meeting or Moon lite Vans dance this year.
Both of these events accounted for at least 10 sales last year....

Its not too late if you are still interested in a calendar or would like a second one they can still be bought.
