Nudie Monsters calendar

Arriving right in time for 2014, which is pretty much now, by the way (excluding those of us who still live in the past), is the Nudie Monster Calendar by art phenom, Paul Garner. Even though he’s from Brighton, UK, his calendar features brilliant illustrations of old school classic American monsters/creatures, from the Invisible Man to Creature from the Black Lagoon. So yeah, no Godzilla or Mecha-Kong.

This gotta-have-it-now calendar sells for £12.00, which converts to $19.66 in good ’ol U.S. fun coupons. Shipping in a hopefully bacteria-free envelope will set you back another £7.00, or $11.47. So $31.13 for this insanely cool piece of pop culture.

Nudie Monsters calendar And monsters aren’t Paul’s only forte; perusing his amazing website [paulgarnerart.com] you’ll find his re-imagined art pieces including celebrities, rock posters, CD cover art, characters, and so much more, your face will ache with the pain of knowing you’ll never be in the same artistic zip code.

While you contemplate your shortcomings, each calendar page is A4 (297cm x 21cm or “8.27 x 11.69”) portrait aspect. The calendar is Wir-o bound (or “bound by Wir-o”) and signed by Paul himself, and not just rubber-stamped. Now that’s classy.
