Calendar sneak peeks
I'm super excited to be printing my 2015 calendars very soon, this year I'm doing three different designs, a Robin one like last year, a flying birds calendar (a slight adaption of last years pattern one) and a new addition, a whole calendar of native New Zealand birds.
The designs are coming along nicely, and I'm just finalising the layout at the moment then it's onto proofs for checking - I need to double check I've got the dates in the right place, a very important step in the process!
I'm still going strong with my 100 day project, its already 1/4 of the way through and I've been having fun playing around with shapes and colours so far. I really want to create a new range of prints by the end of the year, so I might start now to focus my efforts on creating some birds that I can make archival prints of.
One drawing that I'm really quite proud of is this Morepork drawing, it took me a few attempts at drawing him but I finally have one that I'm happy with. As well as being busy with my calendars I'm making a new series of greeting cards with my new native bird drawings, the only problem is picking which ones to use, I have 12 and want to narrow them down to 8 for the greeting card series. I have some decisions to make....
