After 2013 ended, I did not have a calendar to hang up on my wall. So, I took matters into my own hands and designed my own! I really love puppies, and decided to illustrate different puppy breeds for each month. To give the calendar more of a mature edge, I made black and white pencil sketches of cute puppies paired with loud, marker typography in bright colors. I saw this opportunity to design my own marker font, so I developed this font by hand. The remaining typography is set in Gill Sans.
The calendar was printed digitally on Cougar Opaque White Text #60, but I am hoping to have this produced on thicker cardstock with spiral binding. I am hoping to illustrate a Kittens calendar for next year as well.
