Working On: 2013 Kokeshi Calendar

I'd planned to have my 2013 calendars finished and ready to go back in March so I wouldn't be scrambling around at the last minute trying to finish them, but as usual things didn't necessarily go as planned.  I got busy working on other projects and now here I am, trying to get calendars finished in between deadlines and an upcoming vacations.  

I've got three calendars planned for 2013, to be released in September hopefully, but October probably at the rate I'm currently going.  

Right now, I'm working on a new Kokeshi doll calendar, which is now an annual tradition around here.  

Here's a quick look at some of my rough sketches so far:  

Some rough thumbnail sketches

For the month of February

For the month of May

And for the month of June.  

I'll post more sketches and some of the finished illustrations soon!
