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 Angeliki, representing December. The flowers are violets, which are official birth flowers of her actual birth month, and the official flowers of her country. The symbolic traits associated with violets are modesty, virtue, affection, watchfulness, faithfulness, love, and “let’s take a chance on happiness”.

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