PROJECT: 12 Months of Place
Inspired by seasonal plant growing calendars, but wanting to explore a bigger sense of urban landscape; this illustration project creates a calendar celebrating the seasons of cities.
The first city is Brisbane #12monthsofBNE
The idea aims to share the memories, stories and feelings of each month in the city. More than just seasonal food, it wants to start fun conversations about what makes Brisbane unique throughout a year. It could be the Ekka in winter, purple Jacarandas in spring or the scorching sands in summer.
