"Drops of Jupiter" Illustrative Calendar

"Drops of Jupiter" Illustrative Calendar

Inspired by the song "Drops of Jupiter" by Train, I have designed an illustrative calendar using various symbols for each month, as well as concepts inspired by the lyrics. These are the first few Images I have managed to develop into finals. I intend to complete the entire calendar for print, as well as develop it into a moving digital wallpaper for phones and tablets that will change monthly. The images were drawn in pencil, scanned and rendered in Adobe photoshop CS6, Illustrator CS6, wacom intuos 5 airbrushing, frottaged textures and photographic textures.

Illustration for February - "Since the return from her stay on the moon"
Illustration for July - "Tell me, did you sail across the sun?"
March -"now that she's back in the atmosphere with drops of Jupiter in her hair"
