It may be hard to come to terms with but, yes, it’s only a couple of months ’til the end of the year— where did 2011 go?! Whether you’re a super-organised kind of person who likes to have their new calendars in early or just someone who loves beautiful illustration on their walls, you may want to check out this 2012 calendar. It’s been put together by Human Empire, a Hamburg-based illustration and design studio.
As you can tell by the title, ‘Nature Calendar 2012′ runs with the theme of ‘nature’, with 12 artists from around the world interpreting the month, which they were given. The illustrations range from the more literal takes on the times of the year, to the more abstract and decorative, but are all beautifully designed. I particularly like the mixture of the bright and creamy colours in ‘February’.
The featured artists are: Bjoern Rune Lie (No), Vincent Mathy (Be), Mike Perry (US), Anton Weflö (Swe), Markus Oakley (UK), Human Empire (De), Adrian Johnson (UK), Merijn Hos (NL), Sergio Membrillas (Es), Karin Rönmark (Swe), Nan Na Hvass/Sofie Hannibal (Dk) and Adam Highton/Yule Bringer (UK).
