Haven't seen anything about photo submissions for a 2021 NECOA calendar. Is there going to be one for next year? Or, am I just too early?
if most of the work involves graphic arts, do we have any members who deal with computer graphics that we could form a "Calendar Committee" and work on the photo submittals? I know I can't do it since I don't work with graphic media or have any training in it.Ken has done 95% of the calendar work for, I'd say, at least the last decade. I don't know what the sales were on the last one, so I can't speculate on if that is down. However, Ken hasn't been able to be nearly as active these last few months due to health reasons.
The past couple of years Ken was having a hard time getting enough quality pics to fill the calenders.If there was a lackluster response how come past calendars had
such great pictures of members El Camino in them. I certainly like having this calendar in my shop every year. Maybe sales were not as expected.
The contractors are outside painting my house right now. It took me 3 days to figure out the trim color I wanted (Dark reddish copper) doesn't really exist and can't be made to the shade I want. It's because of the way the human eye perceives color and the surface (roughcut shiplap cedar) they are painting on and we're trying to match it up to the brick which has about 4 different colors in it itself. what a pita.The past couple of years Ken was having a hard time getting enough quality pics to fill the calenders.
Great idea to recruit some members with graphics experience to help with the calenders.
seriously? so they don't understand the concept of fair use? or the fact that it's practically impossible to remove any logos, etc? in fact, the manufacturers would be very unhappy if you did remove the logos because that's what it identifies as a GM/Ford/etc product? idiots they areFor those of you who joined recently (or limited memory):
Zazzle became a huge PIA "after" the 2020 NECOA Calendars were produced.
They would not print them because they had identifiable logos and trim pieces in the images of the car that might be owned by GM/Chevrolet.
