Women of the World was a nat­u­ral choice for our 2018 cal­en­dar as it com­bines my two fave things – women and the world! I ex­plored fe­male roles in dif­fer­ent cul­tures and got to play with folky pat­terns. I love hav­ing a project to work on along­side de­sign­ing cards, and a cal­en­dar keeps things fresh and in­spires new ideas. My first thought when plan­ning a cal­en­dar is De­cem­ber. What­ever the theme, that one has to look Christ­massy! I went to Fin­land a few years ago and met some Sami peo­ple with their rein­deer, and that was the first il­lus­tra­tion I did for this cal­en­dar. If an im­age isn’t con­nected to a par­tic­u­lar month, I match them to fam­ily birth­days. My mum’s birth­day is in July and her fave il­lus­tra­tion was the Fu­lani, so now she gets to see it on her birth­day! I’m thrilled our cards are stocked in some of my favourite stores like An­thro­polo­gie, and while it’s scary launch­ing a new prod­uct, luck­ily they de­cided to stock the cal­en­dar too. I can’t wait to see it on the shelves!
