Nothing signals fall like some new duds, so you can probably guess which calendar month was in mind when I created this illustration…
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…
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…
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!)
Another month’s illustration for the upcoming 2015 Joana Miranda Studio calendar is now finished (take a sneak peak below!). And I’m kicking up my heels in celebration of having five calendar illustrations now “in the bag.”

It’s a wrap on another month’s illustration for the soon-to-debut Joana Miranda 2015 Calendar. And here’s a little “taste…”
Like what you see but don’t want to wait until this calendar goes on sale? My illustrations are also available on greeting cards, cellphones, prints, tees, mugs and more!
She’s part Bohemian, part party girl…and definitely a free spirit. What’s not to like?
(This illustration is now available on totes, phone covers, pillows and more in my shop at Society6!)
My latest illustration has been an exercise in, well…
keeping it fresh!
Although I did quite a few versions of this illustration trying out different settings for Josephine and her little dog André (see below for an example)…
In the end, I decided Jo and André were just fine on their own, thank you very much.
By the way, if you’re environmently conscious like me, then this new tote is a must for your grocery runs!
