After single-handedly drawing her 54-piece deck of art cards, "Portable Fortitude," local artist Corina Dross decided to reach out for assistance on her next project. To create the "The Last Calendar You'll Ever Need," she enlisted the help of her sister, painter Josie Mosser, who provided the color to Dross' sketches representing the Mayan prophecy that 2012 is the end of the line. The finished product is a full-color, sketched plant- and animal-heavy calendar with each month depicting what may or may not be in store. To celebrate the release, West Philly art space/clothing boutique VIX Emporium is hosting Magic and Mayhem, a bash that owner Emily Dorn says will feature what could possibly be "the last wine and cheese you'll ever eat."
