delightfully analog

In the end there could only be one Outsideleft Calendar of the Year. A foregone conclusion maybe, but UK artist, Lorna Rose's Bus Drawings Calendar is the one, as we try to make sense of the next year, for us. And so we say, despite looking through crates of cute kitten calendars, if you only need one wall calendar to keep you on track this year, the Bus Drawings Calendar is the one that's going to do it for you.

The calendar features 12 of images from Lorna's recent series of bus sketches, each begun on a bus journey through Birmingham. Printed on heavy duty paper, it's just so versatile. The calendar provides plenty of scope for user interactivity, you can add birthdays, meetings, scheduling conflicts, nights out and all sorts of reminders to the calendar. And at the end of each day, it remains delightfully analog.

We were so bowled over by Lorna's inspiring bus sketches, we featured her in outsideleft in November. You can read that interview here...
