2014 in watercolor
To kick off the new year, I was so happy to be commissioned to create these calendars. Taskforce, one of favorite cleints to work with, let me let my hair down with this piece. At first, they approached me for a unique gift for about 10 people and then it ended up as 100 custom designed, all letterpress printed and watercolored calendar.
On this special project, we added a wash of neon watercolor over the blind debossed 2014 and even pulled off a gradient pattern. For the letterpress nerds, I had to make crazy layers of packing to pull it off. I had a trash can full of paper by the time I got it right.
To package it all up, I pressed a custom address area on the front of a kraft mailer and pressed a few notecards for a personal note.
Success and quite the unique gift for the new year.
