As part of the Great Planner Plan of 2013 I decided to create a little calendar for you all to download and use. It’s all hand-stamped (yes with my stamps!), hand-drawn and hand-lettered so it’s a little lo-fi, a little cottage and I hope you like it.

All of these are A4 paper size but I believe that it will work for letter just as well!

Here’s a link to the PDF – Jan_calendar.pdf

And a JPG Version –

And here are some decals you can print onto sticker backed paper (or just use glue) and use with your calendar!

My 2013 planner is well underway, January is all stamped and in use, I have carved days of the week in French and English. And have 31 date stamps! I’ll share an update on the planner in the next post!

I briefly touched on art goals for 2010 in my last post but I thought perhaps i should jot down to some specific targets I’d like to hit this year.

Since I purchased James Gurney’s Imaginative Realism, I have rekindled my fascination with the fantastic. I realise that one of my limitations in pursuing this style of art is my skills in the figure and anatomy. So the first set of goals relate to this style of art.

1. Complete Drawing the human figure DVD course.

2. Find a life drawing course close to home. There is one in Eltham that I am waiting for information on.

Then I’d like to translate some of the characters from my imagination, and perhaps some descriptions from my favourite fantasy authors into illustrations. I know the industry trend is to work digitally but I’d like to stay with traditional materials.

From there I’d like to turn those illustrations into completed  sculptures, although if I am using James gurney’s recommendations I may produce basic maquettes in between.

I know I have a lot to learn about character creation before I reach this stage so it will probably be a long process to get to this point.

I’d also like to explore the traditional coloured pencil  topics of still life and botanical art (as opposed to illustration – not so much about detail 🙂 )

So the next of my goals is;

3. Complete 50 pieces of art this year. I’m not restricting my self by genre, medium or size, indeed the only restriction is that it’s frameable, and not part of a sketchbook.

So there you are, only three specific art goals for the year. I’ll let you know in a week how I’m going.
