A few months ago I came up with the idea for this calendar project that I kept in secret until it’s recent completion. I picked eleven of my friends for this. None of them knew what I was doing and most of them had no idea I was working on anything involving their likeness. I chose my closest friends and friends whose photos I could work with. I tried to pick the most lovely lady born in each month, and the flowers that matched their personalities.

Meet Alexandra (that’s me! :), born in January. The flowers are Crocus Laevigatus, which is supposed to be the earliest blooming crocus. Since this piece uses my own likeness, I simply stuck with my favorite winter flower in my favorite color.

Ink on paper hand drawing, scanned and colored in Photoshop. Actual flower photographs are used for flower textures.
