2014 all-in-one illustrated calendar

It all started with a little drawing time for myself. I wanted to get back into a simple black and white pen and ink drawing. I decided I would try my hand at a full page calendar for 2014. Above you can see how the sketch began. It is very challenging for me to work without COLOR!

I worked on cold pressed illustration board using black ink. In the end I felt the harsh black and white was to dramatic for what I had in mind, so I decided to have the calendar printed on beige paper to tone down the contrast.

Then for fun I chose to change her lips to red in photoshop. Just one little burst of color :)

My 2014 one page calendar can be found in my ETSY SHOP
