Calendar



This year I've been thinking that I will probably not make a 2012 calendar. Yesterday I took the final decision that there will be no more calendar. There are too many of them and I felt no desire to make one, and desire and curiosity are my main fuels.

So what did I start my morning with, working on a 2012 calendar! I have no idea how that happened :-)

This is still a secret and I don't really know what will happen or how, but I have a vague idea about it. I want to have a forum for all the cute things that wants to come out and as Studio Violet does not exist anymore there might be a Studio Morran in the future... but I haven't had the time to implement it yet (you can see that I started a while ago).
So why am I telling you all this now you might wonder. Because IF I make a calendar for next year (I'm not 100% clear if yet) it will be more on the cute side than last years calendars. A Studio Morran calendar. I will of course keep you updated.

Sounds like a GREAT idea!
And it works that way for me too sometimes. When you finally put something aside, and distance sets in... *magic* (???)

I'll also be looking out for more news from the new studio!!!
It's such a wonderful tribute to a Great Lady!

{hearts}
& lots of wishes for a lovely day to both you ànd Morran!

Dear Camilla,
Perhaps, after all of the worries with sweet Morran's health, a lighter, more whimsical calendar would be good for your heart!

Sofia said...

Sounds exciting! I'm sure it will be cute.

Good luck with Studio Morran, oh and also... this illustration is so sweet!

I know whatever you choose to do, it will be brilliant and Studio Violet will always have a special place in my heart.

I am very glad that you decided to make another calender, Camilla, for it is a nice tradition and I love them all.
and it's also nice to see your cute work.
(of course your darker pieces are also great)

You know everyone will go crazy for a Morran calendar! I included!

Sara said...

I love the work at Studio Morran, and I keep the old calendars each year so I can look over your artwork- being stateside this is as close as we can get to it!

Isabelle said...

First I'm thinking to Morran (best wishes xxx)... I also hope that you will make a 2012 calendar... your calendars are so beautiful and I admire them every day. Studio Morran, what a fantastic idea!

A Studio Morran calendar sounds perfect xxx

Ayse said...

NICE :>

Anna Backlund said...

Camilla! Det kommer att bli svårt att klara 2012 om du inte gör en ny fantastisk kalender!

serra said...

Beautiful!!

What about a new Morran book? She is one of the most famous dogs in the web. And also she has a lot of friends around the world, most of them illustrators... It would be cool a book of Morran's portraits made from illustrators from everywhere, an open call maybe? It would be a best-seller :) Just an idea.
Anyway Studio Morran sounds great!!
A big hug for you two!
Adolfo

fanja said...

i look forward to a new calendar and more Studio Morran goodness!

Annie said...

Some months ago, I found a calendar in my inspiration box. I thought it was pretty and put it on the wall, eventhough it was old. After a while I started following your blog and soon I realized it was yours! Soon I also realized that even though the year wasn't right, the dates and days fit! It is 2005. If you make 2012 I'll buy it.

cinzia ruggieri said...

Yes,Studio Morran is the right answer,and the light one.
I remember what you've said to me:both sides,both kind of works.Never forget the light side,it appears when the other is too much.Good luck with this new experience!

Elizabeth said...

I hope you make a 2012 calendar. While there may be many calendars out there, they are not like yours. Hopefully we see Studio Morran soon. Hugs to you and Morran.
