Breaking our old patterns & designing new ones.

Geometric, organic, subtle or loud—patterns intersect with regulation and decoration in our lives. In 2016, let this calendar inspire you like it inspired us: to observe the small, the mundane, the good, and the bad. With newfound courage, chuck the old habits that no longer serve you, and create the space for new patterns to take form.

Have you ever looked at a snowflake up close? The world we live in is so complex, even in the smallest things. Don't take anything at surface level.


A series of winding tunnels cut into the cold—winter earth is leading to a slumbering groundhog, the unsung hero of February. Spring can wait, folks. Let’s let this little guy sleep a little longer. He’s earned it.


Two very notable events occurred on March 15th; my birthday and the assassination of Julius Caesar. I decided to illustrate the latter by showing loyal protectors' swords battling a slew of traitors' blades all surrounding Julius Caesar with the one backstabber's dagger breaking through the ranks. Beware the Ides of March indeed.


This patterns is inspired by a rainy trip to Portland, Oregon and the Native American art of the area. As the season starts to change—the rain provides so much of what we rely on for growth.


If April showers bring May flowers, this illustration perfectly captures the beauty that mother nature springs upon us.


Star-gazing summer nights and warm weather midnight walks are the glowing gem of my childhood. The month of June brings back all the late nights of dreaming with friends and scouring the sky for patterns of beauty.


July is about relaxing, the beach, the ocean, the waves, and the M.C. Escher-esque school of fish swimming around.


I have always had a fascination with stargazing. August hosts one of the best nighttime events “the Perseid meteor shower,” so I made that my inspiration. I morphed the dark sky and Medusa’s serpent scales into a gradient pattern that represents the meteor shower and the constellation.


“There is no wi-fi in the forest... but you will find a better connection.” September makes me think of new life, despite its undertones of approaching darkness + slowing growth. As individuals existing together on this earth, we're all connected to each other + to our environment by invisible networks. Take time to unplug. Immerse your spirit in the life energy of the outdoors.


Growing up my father was always drawing creepy things. We share a fondness for dark imagery, which is why I chose to illustrate October. I wanted to take my design back to where my love for art all began—by only using pen and paper. Eyeballs were an obvious choice for me. They stand out as recurring visual details in all the best horror movies, like a moving set of eyes in a painting or the book of spells in Hocus Pocus. My goal was to create an eerie feeling with this piece that won't let the viewer take their eyes off of it.


November is a month of coming together with your family and reconnecting. Whether it’s in person or over the phone I want to show that November can be the perfect time to get back in touch with the ones you love the most.


The end of the year, a time for reflection. As the Earth completes its journey around the sun, so do we embark upon a new journey into our future. Identify your triumphs, your failures; seek to understand the patterns and influences which bred them. Time forever marches forward, and so must we. Think bigger, let passion lead. Appreciate what is, but commit to improve it. Grow, evolve. You’ve made it—now make it better. Never perfect, but always better.
