Free Printable: January Calendar

So, 2016 is just a few days away which means it's calendar time! I've decided that the new calendars will be based on the subject of 'Bears' and I've already got lots of my illustrations planned out - I really hope you'll like them! January's bear is a giant, cuddly Panda. Feel free to print the calendar out or use it as your lock screen - whatever you like.

Here's a recap of some of my illustrated advent images, just in case you didn't catch them on Twitter! 

I hope you all had a brilliant festive period. What did you get up to? ♥

Deer in the Forest

Here is the very last Colour Collective image of the year! The chosen colour was 'White', which was such a perfect colour to finish on. CC is currently on a break until next year, but I'm really excited to get back to it and start afresh. 

I hope you're all having a wonderful Christmas day!

Partridge & Pear Trees

This is one of the last Christmas images for the illustrated advent and I wanted to create a more modern take on the traditional Christmas imagery. I really hope you've enjoyed these festive illustrations, it's certainly been challenging to create so many throughout the month! I'd definitely like to do this next year though, it's been more than worth it.

The Christmas Stag

My boyfriend said that this stag looks like he would be the leader of all the reindeers, and would help to train them up in time for Christmas!

Here is last week's Colour Collective! The chosen colour was 'Myrtle Green' which instantly made me think of a pretty woodland! I promised I had a couple more deer to share, there's one more to go!

Meet this plump, retro robin. Robin's immediately make me think of Christmas time and jolly festivities! I hope you like this little one.

Oh Christmas Tree!

This little penguin is really getting into the Christmas spirit in his adorable Christmas tree get up!

Gingerbread House

Here is last week's Colour Collective illustration based on the colour 'Cadmium Red'. I thought this warranted a nice, festive illustration so I chose to design a little gingerbread house with colourful icing! What Christmas treats are you most looking forward to eating?

Autumn Deer

I should have probably posted this a little earlier as it's not strictly 'Christmassy' but it is a deer, so it's still okay I hope? I've gone a little deer mad because I still have two others to share!

Jolly Dala Horse

I've illustrated a couple of Dala Horses now, and I thought they'd be the ideal candidate to be transformed into a festive figurine adorned with snowflakes and holly leaves. 

What animals do you most associate with the holiday period?

The Snowman

Another very Christmassy illustration to share today! This was last week's Colour Collective piece based on the colour 'Silver'. The Snowman is such a classic story; it popped into my head right away when I saw the colour choice. I'm pretty happy with how this poster/book cover turned out, I just love The Snowman's happy face!

Snow Angel

I feel like this angel could be friends with Lush's 'Snow Fairy' in all her pastel goodness!
