Art for 2017 calendar page, the month of March. 2016.
A fellow designer here in Austin put together a fun calendar project as a collaboration between local designers. Each designer was responsible for the artwork of a single month’s page. I chose March. The only constrainta we had were that it had to be landscape format sized correctly, and needed to include the month’s name.
I immediately thought of the phrase “In like a lion, out like a lamb” for the month, and ran with that. The simple line art combines both animals, facing in opposite directions to reinforce the idea of that saying. I also put a pale background of raindrops behind the artwork to give a tiny bit of contrast and interest, and again capture the idea of March.
It was a fun exercise, and something a little different from my normal workload.
The full calendar is available to purchase here.
