I’ve updated my art web site, Elizabeth Daggar : Art and Other Follies, to be more mobile and device-friendly, and also to feel more of a piece with my design folio site, Electrofork. Have a look, and enjoy.
As I posted about a lot over the past few months, I’ve designed a calendar based on the signs of the Zodiac, but re-invented as house sigils or shields, complete with a house motto that distills the nature of each sign to a single phrase (as in the Game of Thrones series and the long heraldic tradition that inspired George R. R. Martin’s family house structures in his books). The grid of days for each month is not by the month, but rather by the days covered by each sign, as you can see in the photos.
The calendar consists of 12 individual rack cards —4”x9”, which can be trimmed down to 4”x6’ postcards, suitable for framing or sending at the end of the year. They’re printed on card stock with a ‘silk’ finish (a super smooth, luxurious matte coating). At $15 plus shipping, it’s a steal!
More images after the jump.
And a sneak peek at Sagittarius in progress! Below are the completed shields / sigils to date, but she will be finished very soon. The link takes you to the Kickstarter page for my Zodiac Calendar for 2015, where you can see all the current designs larger, and donate to get your very own copy!!
I’ve got one-third of the twelve designed now, and it’s a third of the way through the Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of the calendars. If you want to learn more, or get one of your own, read more at Kickstarter!
Another sigil has been designed. This one is based on my adorable little pond comet, Wink. He’s got a ball gown of a tail, and is a slender little ballerina of a fish.
I’ve decided to focus on the designs first, and get to the mottos of houses later on, as they require more research. For more information, check out my Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for printing this Zodiac-based, Game of Thrones-inspired calendar for 2015.
Alright! It’s time again for another Electrofork calendar. I’ve been threatening to employ Kickstarter for some project or other for years, and the time has come. The project has been laid out as follows:
A calendar for 2015 featuring the signs of the Zodiac reinvented as Sigils of the 12 Houses— Winter is coming.

Just sharing this beautiful image, the latest print from Dan McCarthy. I’ve been a fan of his work for years and own a number of his prints. We did a print swap years ago, and I’ve bought some in the intervening years. Always stunning silhouettes, and this one is no exception.
