January 2012 Calendar – Berries Edition

January_2012_berries_hd_signat

Normally I post one calligraphy piece each week on http:steveczajka.posterous.com. I have decided to release additional pieces in 2012 for monthly calendars, and holiday specials. I hope to build up a portfolio of works.

For the January desktop calendar, I couldn’t decide on which image to use, so I posted both an Orchard Edition (not shown) and a Berries Edition.

The new gothic identity shown in the lower part of the image with the red “S” is going to replace my current avatar. I plan to slowly roll this out into the new year for all new pieces and my avatars on my social media properties: posterous, twitter, google+, email, flickr, youtube, and a few others.

The hand done, authentic calligraphy for the January piece and my gothic “S”, was inked as part of my gothic typeface project which is now more or less complete. More about this typeface calligraphy project later.
