12 Day Art Challenge: Create An Illustrated Calendar in Procreate
12 Day Art Challenge
12 Day Art Challenge: Create An Illustrated Calendar in Procreate : Have you ever dreamt of creating your own 12 month calendar featuring your own art? I’ve been creating and selling calendars for the past 10 years for my illustration business, Gingiber. When you want to dip your toe into creating income from your art, you have to find that perfect balance between making eye-catching art and putting it on a product that is useful to your dream customers. Calendars are perhaps the perfect marriage of art + product. Create your own calendar by creating a 12 piece art collection. I will show you how to create your collection of art, layout your own calendar, and get it production ready so that you can bring your calendar to life. Plus I am sharing my favorite online printers with you, I’m providing you with templates for creating a beautiful and useful calendar, and I will give you my tips and tricks for marketing the heck out of your beautiful new 12 month calendar once you are done.
This class is a double whammy:
- You will participate in a 12 day illustration challenge so you design a calendar
- You will walk away with everything you need to make and sell your own art calendar
After taking this class you will have made a new 12 piece art collection, and there are so many other opportunities to leverage that art into other income streams. You can add your work to your art licensing portfolio and shop it around to manufacturers to create passive income. You can turn your calendar artwork into greeting cards, tea towels, stickers, and more and sell them on your own website or Etsy shop. This is what I do in my own business so that I’m getting all the opportunities out of each illustration that I’ve made.
But this class is about more than just creating 12 pieces of art and slapping them onto a calendar template. The best calendars tell a story.
Artists are storytellers. We convey emotion, experiences, and observations through our art. If you are able to tap into your ability to tell a story across a body of work, you will find that you are naturally drawing the ideal customer towards what you create.
What story do you want to tell? Do you want to Educate? Inspire? Challenge? Let’s think about that first and foremost when we dive into this 12 day challenge.
This class is for creatives, artists, and illustrators who are feeling comfortable making art and feel that their own unique creative voice is emerging. As long as you have a medium that you love to work in and have the desire to see your art on your own calendar, this class is for you. I will be completing my art challenge in ProCreate. Also, I use Adobe Illustrator at the end to put together my calendar, so that is a big plus if you have that program.
To complete this class you will need:
- Your medium of choice (I’m creating my art digitally digitally using my iPad)
- Paper and a pencil for sketching
- Scanner if you are creating by hand for scanning your art into your computer
- Adobe Illustrator for layout and preparing your calendar for production. I’m providing you with templates for laying out your calendar that you can open in Adobe Illustrator.
- 12 days to devote to creating your calendar artwork
