I've made a 2022 Riso wall calendar! This is something I've wanted to make for a long time, styled after the 70's calendar tea towels you find at the thrift store. The flowers are drawn from specimens around my neighborhood, there are still flowers in bloom!! This is printed in four colors on a warm cream paper. . . it looks much brighter in person.
With this calendar I tested out Press Paper Punch, a Seattle riso studio in addition to a print run with OutletPDX. I have worked with Outlet for all my riso prints previously and they are *amazing* but it would be great to get everything made a little closer to home and pop in the studio to work with the machines and test out papers. Unfortunately, press paper punch is still closed for studio hours and I'm still waiting on prints from them, I did the same calendar but on a different paper and will have a Cascadia poster! Super excited to see them when they're done and even more excited for when they open up studio hours. Luckily Outlet came through pretty quick and the calendars are available on Etsy!
