Calendar Challenge!

Calendar Challenge! - student project

I had a great time learning with the pen tool and working more with Illustrator in a separate class - 'The Pen Tool: Design a Pin' by Jon Brommet and decided to extend and add to my design to create a pattern for my 2017 calendar. I thought more about my inspiration for my pin - an elephant (which used to be my Grandma's favourite animal) and remembered she had two lovely apple trees in her garden - I combined a design of an apple tree with my elephant and here is the result! This is the first time I have created a calendar and just loved working on it. I'm thinking of getting it printed on tea towels for my family as Christmas presents :-) I hope you like it!
