2023 Calendar by Walker Mettling and Caitlin Cali. $20. Riso printed, oversize, spiral bound.
I'm a big big fan of the publications Walker Mettling brings out into the world. They are one part wild community project, one part activity books, one part underground zines...all mixed together through Mettling's very solid and assured cartooning hand. There is something deeply vital and unpretentious about Mettling's vast line of publications, as if they've tapped into a vein of kids/teens/outsiderish adult cartooning gold that was never quite articulated in this way before. Good stuff! Here we find him working with Caitlin Cali on a post-it note calendar that is just a beautiful handmade work of art.
