additional pages (weekly planner)

After using my calender notebook for few weeks, realized that I need weekly planner. (Cause I always write quite a lot in my calendars XP) Guess I will have to think about adding weekly planner pages for next year's batch. 

Did not take the photo of the edges since the new inner pages poke out from cover.
haha XP

2014 Notebook Calendar

 Year 2014 is just around the corner and I was finally able to make some calendars for my friends who already pre-ordered from me! This time, the calendars are A5 size, stitched notebook style. Hopefully easier for people to carry around! Illustrations were pencil sketches done by me based on western zodiac signs. (Each sign's representative flowers and jewels). This year, I was not able to produce large quantity since each booklets were hand stitched by me. It was rather time consuming project but think I learnt few new things while working on these calendar and think I will be able to develop my future products further with the knowledge I gained. :)

Covers (Pisces, Aries,Scorpio & Aquarius)

Inner pages

The English Roses

Somehow managed to do some watercolour paintings to hand in for Pre-Christmas show at NorthArt Gallery.
Tried painting some English Roses. ( Tried to upgrade the style from last year's calendar flower project)
It a shame that i didnt have time to take good photos of the works after framing them XP

Aquarius (Star Sign Character Design)

Finally~ the last character of the star sign~
I did not know there were so many Aquarius around me before I started this project :P
I hope people enjoyed viewing this project and hope it gave people some insight about each star sign's stereotypical characteristic.
I think I will be using these character again very soon to do some more experimental projects. XD

Aquarius is friendly and loves talking to her friends. Especially she will listen well and give advice if her friends are in need. They are quite adventurous and people are often surprise at various experiences she had. Aquarius is inventive and original, coming up with really unique ideas that sometimes are too unique for people to understand. ;P Even though she is loyal to her friends, she can be quite unemotional and detached. So she might disappear for awhile if she has her own problem. She's not good at setting her priorities in right order, but somehow manages to do her works on time. Aquarius is unpredictable and intractable. She loves wondering around and spending money.
