After much thought and deliberation of what illustrations to use in 2012 calendars I couldn’t help myself and used all the crazy creatures and fantasy themed illustrations that I’ve been creating over the last year.
The wall calendar is 14 pages and includes a back and front cover. This calendar measures 4.25 by 11 inches (10.5cm by 27.5cm)
The desk calendar measures 4 by 6 inches (10cm by 15cm) and is 12 pages with a neeto paper wrap-around that shows each calendar month on the back.
Each 2012 calendar features a different whimsical creature from The Land of Whimsy for each month including a collaborative piece with author, Christopher DeWan for the month of November. The popular Chasing the Dragon is also featured for the month of September with The Messenger of Whimsy leading you into January.
I print each calendar page using archival ink on cardstock. The wall calendar pages including a front and back cover are bound together with a sheer ribbon while the desk calendar is palced into a sturdy jewell case for display.
The wall calendar is available here.
The desk calendar is available here.

After many weeks of working on her she is now completed. I had some issues with the original digital scans and chose to scrap them and rescan her which took some time. She turned out pretty cute as she blows bubbles to water and grow her garden of pink flowers. Continue reading
I laughed, and the name kind of stuck.

Happy Blogiversary to me!
She says "Do you love me?" as she grabs his curled foot…
Wow I illustrated this 7 years ago! It is also one of the few illustrations that bear my married name as I am divorced now. It is signed with a tiny tiny "JB 2001" down on the bottom right rather than a "JD 2001". How about that?
I created this original using watercolor, colored pencil and technical pens.
The original measures 12" by 12" or 30,4cm by 30,4cm
I have been gearing up to begin illustrating large again by drawing many small miniatures. I hope to carry their personality into much larger compositions such as this one in the near future.
8×8 inch Prints are available of this image in my shop.
A one legged creature with one foot and three toes swinging it’s tail circling into oblivion.
These one legged creatures with three toes are common amongst my art. Found on flowers, on eyes and hoppers, a creature of my own creation they tie “it” together for me as an artist. A signature style of sorts.
I began *drawing Hoppers in Early 2004. Their upper body is always round, full of spirals encircling to the core of their being. Each circle represents an idea, a thought that we as individuals each experience every day we are alive on earth. A Hopper is memory. A Hopper is life.
A Hopper is usually happy. Eleven is ecstatic as he is full of many many dreams.
Size – 10 by 10 inches or 25.4cm by 25.4cm
Mediums used – Pilot G-tec C4 pen on acid free Fabriano Sketchbook paper.
*I am still recovering from my move to WordPress.com. Much, let’s say 90% of my images are still missing from my blog. It’s going to take time to put it all back together again. You’ll notice past hoppers not even there… only the trail of words written.
