Vintage, baby

Just in case you’re looking for a Christmas gift for someone from Ilkeston or around, look no further: We’re opening door number five of the Calvendo Advent calendar to one of artist Stephen Millership’s vintage-style illustrations of Ilkeston. If you like what you see (we do!), there’s more in his Ilkeston, Past and Present calendar, a wonderful homage to his hometown in Derbyshire that he brought to life on our platform. Thanks, Stephen!



Lots to be inspired by: Calvendo’s creative calendar makers

With calendar season on our doorsteps (yes, autumn is finally here!), we see new users on our platform as well as ‘old hands’ cracking on with their ideas and producing fresh calendar material. Here are a few projects that caught our eye over the past weeks. If you haven’t logged into the system yet this year to start a new project, take a look and be inspired by this snapshot of our talented Calvendo community (and there’s much more!):


  • Whimsical and delightful: Japanese Kokeshi doll illustrations by Capucine with cleverly woven in seasonal references. (Don’t miss the December Kokeshi!)
  • The eyes have it: Great use of our new cover design templates by David Knowles in his ‘Just Nature’s Eyes’ calendar
  • Yearning for the countryside: Christian Mueringer is tapping into the zeitgeist with his ‘Charming Country Houses’ project and collection of rural gems around Europe.
  • Retro with a modern twist: Stephen Millerships’s travel poster style illustrations of Manchester and his hometown Ilkeston are fabulous. Take a look!
  • Delicious: Atlantismedia’s ‘Sweet Dreams’ selection is mouth-watering. Pretty perfect for everyone who has a sweet tooth.
  • Intriguing: Wildlife Art Print’s produced some amazing macro shots of beetles clear, crisp and rather stylish.
  • Reflective: David Chennell’s Wirral calendar features beautiful reflection photography, showing Merseyside’s hidden gem in a different light.
  • Niche interest: Airline tails – yes, that’s a thing! Craig Russell had enough material for not just one but two calendars featuring airline tails. If you’re not an aviation expert yourself, you’ll be surprised how varied and colourful they are
  • Twilight zone: Sue Burton has taken a closer look a the hours of twilight and found different  Degrees of Darkness
  • Flower artistry: Terry Hewlett’s Floral Attraction brightens up every wall,  a real mood booster!
