The Actual Path of Civil Rights

I kinda liked this last phrase so I mocked up a design for Teespring! I mainly want to get one for myself.

HERE IT IS:

the type is pretty small

The shirts are available for 5 days only. I also made a bumper sticker version:

wondermark-laugh-bumper-sticker

The stickers are available through StickerMule, a store that also sells my other stickers by the each if you ever want just a single one of them.

Do people ever say that? “By the each”? Sounds weird to me but I swear I’ve heard people say it. Now, it’s always sounded weird even when they said it, but I’m pretty sure they were grown-ups, so who knows??

Wondermark Valentine cards are still available too!



A Free, Printable Progressive Calendar for 2015

I made a simple, printable wall calendar for my office! You can have it too — here’s a PDF file you can print yourself.

Those of you who’ve picked up copies of the Wondermark Calendar in any of the last three years know about my interest in progressive calendars.

By that, I mean a calendar that doesn’t have any breaks between months. I think I invented the term? By that, I mean “nobody else has ever used this term.”

Back in 2012 I wrote all about it. The special Wondermark branded calendars, of course, address the matter with their modular card design.

But this year, I also wanted a big work calendar I could mount on the wall and write on. I like being able to see the coming weeks and months at a glance.

So I made this:

WHAT DAY IS IT

It’s an entire 2015 calendar that fits on six sheets of regular typing paper. In the picture, you can see I’ve trimmed the pages so they line up in columns of 2 pages each; you could arrange it a different way, if you prefer.

I tried to make it very simple and very clear, with no wasted space or ornament. We all basically know which holidays happen when, so holidays and other observances are marked with just an abbreviation.

The “businesses-are-closed” holidays (where I live, anyway) are further indicated with a shaded circle. The letters “DS” mark the Daylight Saving changeover dates. Some other possibly confusing ones are “CNY” (Chinese New Year), “RAM” (Ramadan), and “CHAN” (Chanukah).

Since I also do a lot of weekend travel, I decided to group the weekend days together on the right, and start each week with Monday on the left.

I thought this might be useful to you as well, so here you go! Please feel free to print out your own!

EDIT: Jason McDermott has created a version featuring the significant Australian dates!

João Paulo Bernardes has created a Brazilian version as well!

I’ve also updated my version to correct the March 8 date for Daylight Saving Time.
