2019 Wall Calendar Porkchopstick Studios

from 15.00

2019 promises to be bright!

The twelve animals of the ancient Chinese zodiac inspired this year’s Porkchopstick Studios calendar, and each month is presided over by one of these amazing beasts with their unique personalities.

The idea took shape on a visit to the beautiful Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine during the 2018 Bucket Tour (BUCKETTOUR.COM). There we saw the sculpture exhibit “Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads” by the contemporary Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. It’s his reinterpretation of the twelve bronze animal heads of the traditional Chinese zodiac that once adorned a fountain in an imperial retreat in Beijing.  They reminded us at once of our faithful mascot Squealy McPiggerson and his furry friends, and they are the basis for our twelve original drawings. Since 2019 also happens to be the Year of the Pig, Squealy is especially proud of this year’s calendar.

In the Chinese zodiac, each animal represents a year. Legend has it that the Jade Emperor sought twelve animals to be his palace guards. Learning of this, eager animals rushed to be first in line for this great honor. They competed against each other with much determination, eventually taking their places, and out of this special rivalry the sequence of the zodiac was born. By tradition, each animal is endowed with his own attributes, described throughout the calendar.

In the unique spirit of Porkchopstick Studios, our calendar combines all the traditional holidays you’d expect with some new and unusual days to celebrate!

We hope you will enjoy keeping track of all your special dates, boring meetings, happy reunions, dental cleanings, days off, tasks accomplished, and trips to nowhere, in the company of Squealy and his ancient Chinese friends with our 2019 calendar.

Measuring 11" x 14", it comes with a Large Binder Clip that is light, and has been tested to hang on the tiniest of hooks or nails. Each page is printed on Recycled Cardstock so you can write any of the important life events you have, and when the month is over, you can remove it, hang it somewhere else, repurpose it for what you need. The cool thing is you can use the Binder Clip for next year, too, use it for next year’s calendar!

We are also offering our calendar without a clip, if you have another idea of how you want to hang it!
