Wow Cool has teamed up with San Jose’s Psycho Donuts and 17 acclaimed artists to create a unique wall calendar for 2011. Psycho Nurse! is a full-size, 12-inch square wall calendar printed in full color on thick glossy paper. Psycho Donuts’ nurse-garbed waitstaff appear in the calendar photographed in a variety of evocative, but definitely safe for work, scenes; from being covered in bubble wrap to a full-on zombie nurse apocalypse. World champion kickboxer and Psycho Donuts fan Jenna Castillo makes a guest appearance as well. Psycho Donuts founder Jordan Zweigoron says, “The Psycho Nurse Calendar is a reflection of the beauty and creativity of the donuts, nurses, and artists that make Psycho Donuts the most unusual donut shop in the world.”
Psycho Donuts is also an art gallery, and several of the exhibiting artists have their work featured in Psycho Nurse! Psycho Donuts art curator Christine Benjamin, ‘Robots & Donuts’ art star Eric Joyner, body painter Trina Merry, Michael Foley and six other Bay Area artists contributed to the dozens of artworks reproduced in the calendar. There are also several contributions from artists who have worked with Wow Cool previously, including comic book creators Simon Gane (Dark Rain and Vinyl Underground, published by Vertigo) and Mark Martin (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Teeny Weeny from Nickelodeon Magazine), and representatives of New York City’s graffiti collective Endless Love Crew.
Psycho Nurse! is also ridiculously useful and informative. Literally over a thousand notable birth dates are listed from the realms of art, music, film, science, politics and local legend. Many seasonal and atmospheric events are given a nod and most popular holidays (and several quite odd ones) are detailed. There is also a fair share of educational content from the history of the Bay Area’s oldest mental hospital to the discovery of the radioactive element ‘Californium’. “It’s the Google Daily Challenge, really”, says the calendar’s editor and photographer Marc Arsenault; “There’s at least one holiday, fact or person per day… maybe three or four… that you have never heard of, and will hopefully be curious enough about to go look up.”
The calendar has an additional value, as it includes monthly coupons for Psycho Donuts as well as discounts at Camera 3 Cinema, San Jose ComedySportz and Tandoori Oven. Total value estimated at $66.
The artists: Ben Jackson, Christine Benjamin, David Hartman, Eric Joyner, Infinity, Ian Lynam, Jared Konopitski, Lacey Bryant, Laura Callin Bennett, Mark Martin, MCA Evil Design, Michael Foley, Nicolas Caesar, Simon Gane, Simon Salas, Steven Cerio and Trina Merry
