A series of illustrations created for my 2022 calendar. Each illustration has been inspired by British and folkloric traditions and symbolism relative to each month. Each illustration features a female figure representative of the month, birth flowers, symbolic animals and complementary colour palettes.
Artwork was originally created using a mono-print process which was then digitally collaged and composed with for digital print.
