Hey, these are pretty awesome. Do you have them in a larger size? I'd love to use them as my desktop wallpaper, if that's cool with you.

I wish I did. Most of these are based on earlier pieces that were made to fit the resolution of my MacBook's screen. The other limiting factor to resolution size is my painfully old camera... which is why I'd most likely never do this as a print version.

The text is scaleable, so I think I could increase the size of the image to a larger resolution and replace the calendar part so it stays sharp and readable. If the images themselves look okay at the resolution of your desktop, I could go back and make larger versions that way.



Speaking of printed calendars, if this had been done as a printed calendar this might have been the cover...

And index pages for each year (I'm not finished with 2017 yet)...

... but this is mainly me having fun with a what if idea.

Oh, and the one CGI element is the K7 Space Station which I made back in 2007 when I was trying out CG modeling (on antique software and hardware from the early 1990's, as seen here).

I am loving all of this, Shaw! This is beautiful work!

(Heh... I see the Enterprise is about to get her revenge on the Klingon battlecruiser in the third 2017 pic.) :D

Hey Shaw, all your images are fantastic but I especially like the one for October, 2017! ;) :lol:

Seriously, I am honored you would include it in your calendar. :D

I know I'm posting twice with the same praise, but man these are great photos. Makes me feel like they're from a lost episode/movie
