Our final project for Design Fundamentals, other than our design journal, was a calendar. We needed to show a change over time or some sort of metamorphosis while also displaying the 2010 calendar.

I started sketching some cute, boxy little owls, and created a little love story between the two of them. I didn’t know how I’d display the calendar part, but I started to think about making the calendar a part of the tree. After many different experiments on how to do this, what shape the tree should be, where the branches should be and how the story should fit around it, I came up with my final design and put it down in pen and colored pencils.

There are plenty of other small touches in the final design for you to look out for like a little hedgehog, a mouse and bumblebees. I had a lot of fun designing this and drawing it out.
