2019 Curiosity Wood Artist Calendar

The 2019 Curiosity Wood Artist Calendar is a series of artist hand-drawn artwork, handpicked and compiled into two different formats of the 2019 calendar; a Table Calendar + Postcard, and an A4 Wall Calendar (that doubles as art prints). This project is a collaborative project between artist Yi Pei Loh and a Melbourne based design studio 'Design Excites Me'.

Each Table Calendar + Postcard features an image selected from a series of artwork named Curiosity Wood which presents a mystical and mysterious forest where peculiar, strange and sensitive living things resided. The illustrated flora and fauna are a metaphor of feelings and emotions of a human being. The series is inspired by the artist's experience of living closely with a forest in his hometown in Malaysia. All the images were originally created by Yi Pei with watercolor on paper.

In early October this year, Curiosity Wood was exhibited in a local pop-up gallery space Tacit Studio and received positive and motivating feedback from the audience. Now, Yi Pei and Design Excites Me are happy and proud to present the reproduction of artwork in the form of calendar and postcard to share and celebrate the inspiring art.

Risks and challenges

As the original artworks were hand-drawn on paper and thus reproducing and printing the images 100% match to the originals required attentive care and technique. To achieve industry art print quality, artworks were carefully scanned and multiple tests on printing were done to assure the quality of images are as high as the originals.
