First of all, I apologise for my lack of updates since April. I was hesitant in coming to my decision and also about announcing it.

Due to some personal issues I’ve been having I have decided to discontinue the Anthro Calendar. It has been a stressful endeavor for me and many of you probably would not know the workload involved in producing a publication such as this. With what seemed a dwindling of interest by the community and increasing shipping costs, I did not think it could remain a viable product. I came to the conclusion that 5 wonderful editions was good point to bow out and I am very happy with all that I and my fellow artists have achieved. In the future I hope to organize a different art project perhaps, one that is not restricted in its shelf life and hope to invite many more inspiring people on board.

I hope you can understand and I’m sorry if I have disappointed anyone. I would like to thank all of the contributors for their hard work and dedication – I could not have done this without them and of course you, our supporters!

Awww...just as I was coming over here to look for next years....Oh well. I can understand why you're discontinuing was good while it lasted, and I am glad I was able to get 4 out of 5. Here's hoping some time in the future it can be started up again.

I am so happy to have been a part of this project.  It was such a great experience and you ran it so well!  In fact, you ran it with such efficiency I had no idea it was such a huge workload for you to bear!  I wish there was a way I could have lifted some of the work off your shoulders.  Whatever the future brings, I will be on the lookout for your latest and greatest project :clap:

This was an amazing project. Thank you for all of the hard work put into it, Nim on the website, and a few others for helping get it distributed around the world! I hope in the future that should you be inspired to take on another collaborative effort, that it be one with a permanent shelf life and a lot less stress. It was amazing to network with such talent. It's been an inspiration for me for developing collaborations. :heart:

Disappointing as it is to see such a wonderful project discontinued, it was wonderful and I wish I could have gotten my brother one this year. I hope one day you'll consider doing it again or passing the torch on to another person. Either way, the art is beautiful and it was the best calendar I ever spent money on.

As one of the very few who could completely understand the workload, congrats on the run! 5 years is 65 images that otherwise would not have been brought into the world, keep that in mind!
