The calendar was sent to Summer as a gift from our whole community. We also wrote a fan letter where we described our admiration of her work, this great community and explaining the calendar project.
See our letter here:
This year we working as promised with a new awesome calendar with different layout. See this thread for information (it is not too late to submit fanart yet) This new calendar will also be sent to Summer, but instead of sending her just one fan letter we will send several individual letters.
The letters will be put on separate pages which will combined into a book. The book will be separate from the fan art calendar so you can decide your own layout.
Take a look on this project (Jameron/Summer) scrapbook for inspiration
I love this idea BTW. I can finally leave my mark on the project even if I completely suck at making graphics. Also I can finally send a message to Summer herself!
Though writing the message is harder than I thought actually. In the last version I wrote I went a bit too far with the praising and it also got too long so I'll have to write a new one from scratch lol
Has any of you finished it already? Summer Glau is so awesome, it isn't even funny! Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!
Czech fan ogy86 has suggested his friends on czech TSCC forum to write a letter to Summer that could be included in this scrapbook; i think this is a good idea.
IMO the more people writes, the better because that way Summer feels that we are many. Though I hope she'll have the time to actually read the letters if were are too numerous. Summer Glau is so awesome, it isn't even funny! Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!
I have not started yet, but I'm working on a letter to send Summer. I'm going to request an autograph and I'm waiting for the IRC I ordered from Åland to arrive. I'll mention in my letter that we working on the Calendar and that she also will get a scrapbook this year.
I can testify to that writing messages to Summer is hard. You can't stop the signal!
Any scenes or characters Summer played that made a big impact on you. Something you could relate to, something that you personally experienced?
It would be something that would be good to write in the Scrapbook
Actually, this is causing me a bit of a headache whenever I try to write to Summer. The problem is that I have more than one instances of this, for me Summers art as a whole is what made a big impact on me. However if I try to write this down, it often sounds a bit too generic, and is less coherent than if I wrote about one of her characters and told her why I like it. But if I wrote only about one then she'd feel that I don't like her other characters that much which isn't true and the message would lost
Any ideas? Summer Glau is so awesome, it isn't even funny! Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!
Am working on it. Neither in a teenage-style (like "Summer you are a flower" blablabla), nor in an avant-garde style ("SmR.y. a. a. fL.")
But am working on it.
Well, you are lucky if you can write actual poetry. I fear I have to make something up with a more clumsy and mundane language. Summer Glau is so awesome, it isn't even funny! Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!
