Making: Holiday show!

This past week I’ve been finishing off a 2013 calendar. I skipped last year due to a busy schedule of wedding planning but I’m happy to say I was able to make a new calendar for 2013! I was inspired to use a map I have previously printed but change the focus so it highlights the San Gabriel Mountains and the cities and towns that roll along the foothills. The original map is a really old Thomas Bros. map that I picked up a few years ago, it’s fun to see what cities show up and which don’t. Below is a pic of the back ground fade and then the calendar all finished. It’s a monthly pull off calendar with 2 months at a glance, the print can be cut down to fit in a 8×10 frame at the end of the year.

If you want to pick one up from me I’ll be selling them next week December 15th at The Holiday Boutique at The Mcgroarty Arts Center here in Sunland Tujunga. I’m excited to be a part of this show as it’s in my neighborhood, it will be fun to meet some new neighbors and share my work. I’ll also have a few new things to post next week for those of you that live up here in the mountains, some new mini prints and buttons with a focus on Sunland Tujunga.

Here are the details for the Holiday Boutique, it should be a really fun event! There will Shopping, Live Music and a Chili Bowl Sale and Bake Sale. For the chili bowl sale you pick out a ceramic bowl made by local artists and get a bowl full of chili with it so come hungry for lunch and to buy some art!
