Andrew Boulton Memorial Edition
|Available from||DriveThru RPG|
The Traveller Calendar 2013 Andrew Boulton Memorial Edition is a Spica Publishing calendar designed for Generic Traveller.
The Traveller calendars were a neat series of Traveller art organized for charity benefits. The art was mostly CG (computer generated) and came from the sci-fi art community. Andrew Boulton headed the project every year.
The annual Traveller Calendar was the brain child of Andrew Boulton, who for the past several years has assem- bled a truly talented band of artists to produce the calendar, proceeds of which went to various good causes.
Sadly Andrew passed away this year (2012) and it looked like the next calendar would not happen. But the artists would not let that happen: Ian Stead stepped forward to manage the project; the artists all stepped forward with truly great Traveller art, and all wanted to make this a tribute to Andrew.
Everyone donated their time; the Traveller permissions and licensing (as always) was donated.
Now you are the last link in the chain: we hope you enjoy this calendar as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
