Love owls or just great artists? In need of a cool print-your-own 2011 calendar? Sometimes the generosity of people on the web amazes me. Shivani at My Owl Barn has compiled an amazing collection of owl art directly from the artists, and specifically for this project. It's available to anyone to mix and match into their own calendar.
It's so easy, and there are 30 pieces of art to choose from. The hardest part is picking the 12 to make it into your final calendar. Just choose which piece goes with which month, and at the click of a button you've got it all compiled into a pdf you can download and print for your own 2011 calendar! How cool is that? You can even make more than one if you really can't choose just 12 pieces. Or print them out and give as a cool gift.
Some of the artists are already favorites of mine, like Nathan Jurevicius (whose blind boxed wind-up owls were one of my favorite toy releases). But a lot of the artists I didn't know before, and am definitely going to be looking into more. This is a great way to discover new favorites.
