Presenting… Our 2017 Kid Icarus & Friends Artists Calendar!
Each page of our handprinted 2017 calendar was designed by a different Toronto-based artist and showcases a multiplicity of illustrative styles. Artists were given three predetermined colours with which to articulate their vision, adding to the design challenge. These calendars are 12″ x 17″ and coil bound in a closed edition of 85.
If you would like to purchase one of our limited edition calendars please stop by our Kensington shop to peruse a physical copy or pick-up one via our webstore!
Scroll through to view each individual calendar page and the artist responsible for each design! We are so grateful to our contributing designers for bringing such awesome stylized images to our 2017 calendar. Click through to see more work from each artist!
