Little Red Boots
Freelance illustrator Kathryn of Little Red Boots is based on the edge of the New Forest. It’s no wonder therefore that her Wall Calendar design is inspired by the surrounding wildlife. Kathryn believes that now more than ever people are turning to nature for comfort and distraction, and we couldn’t agree more. Finished with a luxurious (and ‘strokable’) velvet lamination, your can grab your very own copy here.
Anila Patel (collaborative calendar)
2020 has definitely been a year for creative collaboration, and the work of these amazing British Asian designers is the perfect example! The idea behind this beautiful 2021 Calendar was to create an Indian inspired design, that celebrates both the artist’s backgrounds and their culture in various creative styles.
Lockdown has been tough on everyone this year, but it’s been inspiring to see creatives using the extra free time to their advantage. Astrid Weguelin set herself a challenge to create a series of illustrations on just one subject – vegetables! These gorgeous, organic drawings have beautiful varying shapes and colour patterns, which tie in perfectly to her 2021 Calendar. Don’t miss out on getting yours here.
Katie Ruby Miller
Every year we greatly anticipate Katie Ruby Miller‘s Calendar design, and we’re pleased to see it’s better than ever! Katie curates her twelve favourite cat pun illustrations into a Calendar annually. This year she has changed the format slightly, opting for an A5 Double Page Calendar. From David Meowie to Alan Purrtridge – ‘The Punderful World of Cats’ is an absolute necessity for your home or office next year. Get one here while you still can!
2021 is going to be great… right? Luckily Sarah Frances is at hand to create positive vibes no matter what life throws at us next year.

Next up is Susanna Taylor! Her calendar is inspired by wildlife in Britain, particularly the animals found in the New forest near where she lives. Each individual design also features several bees, a small reminder of the ones she enjoys flying around at the bottom of her garden.
