There is a vast array of beautifully illustrated 2012 Calendars available for next year from some very talented Australian artists.
This blog showcases some of the different styles of illustration by popular Australian artists that are currently available. (Don't forget The Design Files 2012 calendar we featured recently on the blog too!)
Pictured above and below are the works of artist Catherine Campbell.
Catherine is a graduate of the College of Fine Arts, NSW and is now based in Melbourne. You can own your own print from her Etsy store - My Folk Lover.
You can find out more about Catherine's art and upcoming exhibitions on her Catherine Campbell Art blog + website.
Pictured above is La Rara's very affordable 2012 calendar for a special price of only AUD $8.
La Rara creates a range of beautiful, limited-edition, screen prints and paper goods. Each item is handmade individually in Sydney and is unique from the others.
The La Rara range incorporates greetings cards, framed prints, notebooks, postcards, notecards, gift tags, invitations and bespoke social stationery.
For 2012, Eveline Tarunadjaja's, calendar pages are filled with all new works from her latest show, "Threads". Skilfully designed by her sister, Nina Tarunadjaja, each calendar is specially made, bound and assembled with lots of love and black/white strings, and comes with a free sticker set!
Her new body of work is based on the characters from a self written story. Through her characteristically delicate and detailed illustrations, Eveline toys with the nature of the human psyche, innocence and child’s play.
The calendar is available in both wall and desk formats.

Mulberry Muse is a romantic and whimsical collection of stationary and collage prints.
Inspired by a passion for French vintage and antique ephemera Mulberry Muse evokes a nostalgic desire for beautiful paper products including their 2012 Calendars (pictured above and below).

Able and Game is a Melbourne based stationery label that creates greeting cards that no doubt stand out from the crowd.
Cute couple Anna & Gareth launched Able and Game in February 2009 with a unique range of Valentine’s Day cards, using humour and real sentiment to convey messages that are quirky yet personal.
The cards feature hand drawn designs with references to pop culture and trends that people easily identify with and now they have a 2012 Calendar with that same feel.
The illustrations are drawn by hand, giving the calendar an innocent quality that brings you back to the day when you used to draw yourself.

Able and Game website.
Ella Leach Designs is a boutique stationery company based in Sydney whom believe that putting pen to paper is a dying art, and so strive to provide a stationery collection that is as stunning in style, as it is thoughtful in quality.
Owner and designer Ella Leach is inspired by the simple, structured beauty of Scandinavian design and folk art. Pair this with her love for colour and pattern, and you have an aesthetic that is whimsical and childlike yet elegantly refined.
Pictured is Ella's beautiful 2012 Calendar. More information can be found at the Ella Leach Designs website.
And that is just a snippet of the talent that is available in Australian Artists 2012 illustrated calendars! I hope you turn the page for a new month to the tune of these artists in the new year!
