Thinking About My New Illustrated Calendar – Pen Sketches

Hi,

I didn’t want Janauary to end without me thinking seriously about the illustrated calendar that I want to have available for next year.  With this in mind, I’ve been sketching like crazy and thinking of what theme that I would like it to use to pull the whole calendar together.  The ideas are still at the seed stage but it feels good to actually begin.

Below are some of the sketches I’ve been working on:

I don’t know where I’m going with these yet but I’m just letting the ideas flow as much as possible.  As you can see, I’ve done them with a blue ballpoint pen which is not the usual medium for me but it was interesting!  I’m not necessarily thinking of doing the illustrations for the calendar in ink but the pen was what I had to hand at the time and I liked the idea of trying to do shading with it.

What do you think?
