I created a 2010 calendar for Printhouse Corporation and jelly. jelly bring together a collection of original and fresh talent from around the world, from live-action directors, illustrators, animators and web/flash developers. jelly organised the stunning illustrations for the cover of the calendar and each month.
I am really fascinated by some of the illustrations. Below are my favourites.
The illustration for the cover by pokedstudio is one of my favourites! Do check out their website. I could not help myself to download and use one of their (free) wallpapers.

More about the Calendar
The whole calendar is matt laminated. Spot UV have been used on the title of each month. To make things a bit more interesting, I added Spot UV to a few elements on each illustration. It add some texture to the over all look and feel. The illustration below for January is by Brand Nu.
On the illustration for September by Sandra Suy, I used Spot UV on all the black bits.
The last page of the calender is 20mm longer. This allow to show the logos of the two companies through out the year. A charcoal background colour was used for bottom part (22mm high) of the back page. The logos are in Spot UV only. The rest of the back page has a light cream background colour with information (text in same charcoal colour) and contact details about the two companies.
Only a limited amount of the calendars was printed. Luckily I got my hands on one to entertain me all year around.
