    Maybe The Hunting of the Quark--with a Ferengi pod somewhere hiding.

    Outstanding and well done. I'm certain it will be sitting under my tree (as have the SOTL calendars for the last ten years).

    I wish someone would do an article with all of the winners.

    Nice Dac! I came in here to let you know, but way more fun to see it for the first time yourself. :D

    Mee tooo. I'd love to hear the judge's feedback especially.

    Congratulations Dac!

    But unfortunately I have to say I am really underwhelmed by the two pictures they have published so far. I would assume these are the best of the fan art they choose - and based on that, I wouldn´t buy the calendar. They should have stayed with the established artists or maybe do a mix of both, but not this radical change just to save some money.

    Cool!

    I'm sure I'll be getting one too... I've gotten one for my desk at work ever since they came out.

    ^Gotta say, Im a little miffed that this is the first time I can remember that they've NOT had all 12 pictures on the back, and that mine isn't on it. :/

    Mine either, but the upside is that a great many people will be looking us up, who would not otherwise have bothered. Bad for my ego, but good for my website and youtube traffic.

    Oh, I'm around. I appreciate the compliment.

    Little busy at the moment to talk myself up, but I've got threads here, and you can check out my website.
