A Sneak Preview of the Joana Miranda Studio 2015 Calendar (It’s in the Bag!)

Yes, I just put the finishing touches on my 12th and final illustration for the Joana Miranda Studio 2015 Calendar!

And here’s a sneak preview of a portion of the final illustration…

December Gifted Girl teaser

Now I’m making a few pre-production tweaks before “my baby” is off to the printer.  Look for an announcement in the next few weeks for the launch of the calendar in my shop at Etsy.  I’ll let my Joana Miranda Studio Newsletter subscribers know first (not a subscriber and want to be? Click here), followed by an announcement in a post on my blog.

Stay tuned…

A Sneak Preview of the Joana Miranda Studio 2015 Calendar (Continued)

Nothing signals fall like some new duds, so you can probably guess which calendar month was in mind when I created this illustration…

Two Friends in September teaser

Of course, this is just a sneak peak of a portion of the illustration.  I’m keeping the full illustration under wraps until the calendar is ready to launch.  But more on that soon…

A Sneak Preview of the Joana Miranda Studio 2015 Calendar (Continued)

I’m closing in on the finish line…only 3 1/2 more illustrations to go for the 2015 Joana Miranda Studio Calendar!  (In case you’re wondering, I’m counting the illustration that is laid out in pencil on my drafting board – but not yet rendered – as the half.)  The entire process of designing a calendar has been a thrill.  The challenge of coming up with an image that fits the particular characteristics of a certain month is actually more liberating than I thought it would be.  And I’ve found that thinking this way has also freed up my approach to creating backgrounds and scenes for my “fashionistas.”

Here are sneak peaks of portions of my most recently completed calendar illustrations.  I’m not giving away the months they represent, but I think you’ll agree that these aren’t winter months…

June Calendar Lobster Girl teaser

With any luck, the 1/2 illustration on my drafting table will turn into a fully completed illustration by tomorrow.  Stay tuned for a fun surprise (and thank you Tracy F. for the inspiration!)

A Wee Bit of Shameless Product Promotion…

Guess what?  My mom ordered one of my tote bags recently from my shop at Society6 (thanks, Mom!) and since I happen to be visiting her, I got to “try it on” today.

Here’s a closeup so that you can see how nice the printing looks…

And a little farther away to give some perspective (this is the 16×16 sized tote.)

The Practice Session2

Take it to your music lesson, or to the gym…

The Practice Session Tote bag

With plenty of room, sturdy construction and the image printed on both sides, you’ll look good coming and going!

P.S.  Other designs are available as well.  Take a look here.

The Boho Girl – Sumi Ink and Marker Illustration by Joana Miranda

She’s part Bohemian, part party girl…and definitely a free spirit.  What’s not to like?
