The year in black and white.

This series of illustrations, for a 2011 calendar, was created for Atelier in the US, through Leo Burnett. They were tricky to do, since the shapes had to be very readable, and were inspired by this boot I'd drawn for Macy's earlier this year.

As is often the way with jobs that are a little punishing in both deadline and difficulty, I'm actually really pleased with the way they turned out. There's a classic drama in white-on-black, and the design leaves the illustrations a bit of breathing space. My favourite months are the July fan, the over-the-top August bottle, and the October necklace, since it hides a cheeky skull and a handful of other Hallowe'eny artefacts. I'm awaiting a few printed copies as we speak.
