UPDATE: Now that this project is complete, the book will be coming out near the end of 2019 ! The 2020 calendar is already up and can be found on my shop here. Thank you to everyone who followed this journey throughout the year of 2018! <3
The Monthly Character Series was a personal project I pursued for the year of 2018 where every month I attempted to create a character based off of that respective month using common characteristics, zodiac symbols, birthstones ect. And write a short story about them, which I narrated in a new YouTube video every month.
It's been a difficult project to say the least, but one that I have also had quite a bit of fun with. It was an incredibly fulfilling project and one of my biggest accomplishments of 2018! I hope you enjoy(ed) the stories and illustrations!

Never being able to settle on one passion, Jules' life felt like it had no direction, no true calling. But when and why did he have the idea that having one true calling is the only way to to live life? What if a person didn't have to settle? Would that ever work?
