I had these up for sale on etsy, but decided to rather share them for free. I’ve given them as Christmas gifts and they seem to be a hit!
I wanted to make bookmarks with real African flair; drawing inspiration from townships, villages, metropole, landscapes, places I’ve lived at, people I’ve met. And not a leopard pattern or safari theme in sight. So each month is different, some designs might reflect that month’s international or local theme: like Valentine’s Day or Women’s month.
For May I used Kokerboom (Quiver tree) silhouettes. It’s not really a tree, but a very big aloe. I wanted to have a sunset background but still keep it tongue-in-cheek; hence the paint sunset stripes 😉
Every end of the month I’ll upload the following month’s bookmark calendar.
