LLewellyn Worldwide - 2014 Astrology Calendar by juliedillon LLewellyn Worldwide - 2014 Astrology Calendar by juliedillon
I just finished up illustrations for the 2014 Astrology Calendar for Llewellyn Worldwide. Here is the cover art I did earlier this year. I'll hopefully be able post the interior illustrations for each sign at some point. For the sake of fitting everything on the cover, I had to use some of the symbolic animals/objects (crab, scorpion, ox, etc) whereas for the individual illustrations, each one is personified instead; I tried to take special care with each one. :) You can preorder the calendar if you like, or just check out the rest of Llewellyn Worldwide's offerings at www.llewellyn.com.
(edit: I realize looking at it now that Sagittarius' archery form is very off; I had help getting the actual Sagittarius illustration properly posed, so hopefully I can show that soon :) )

Your artwork is very beautiful. I love the details and the colors. Magnificent.

Getting a custom piece done by you would be a dream, but you're not taking commissions at the moment are you you? Note me if you do. I seriously would like to work with you.

Since you've done picture of the astrology, ever thought of doing the Chinese zodiac? Or perhaps the "Black Zodiac"?

Well, the zodiac pieces I have done were commissioned by Llewellyn Worldwide. I probably wouldn't do a similar project (other zodiacs, tarot decks, etc) unless a publisher commissioned me to do it, mainly because they are really big undertakings. When I have free time, I'd rather work on my own original art and do what inspires me at the moment. :)

Wish I could commission you. I'd love to see you do those Zodiacs I mentioned. Although the "Black Zodiac" is something I came up with. Or at least my own version of. That each sign would be the opposite of the European Zodiac. Such as:

The Fire Bearer

The Eel

The Sloth

The Coo-coo

The Cyclops

The Squid

The Hyena

The Whore

The Shackles

The Nexus

and the Jackal

I look at this and I see a family portrait of the world. All life forms as one large family. You can't go wrong with astrology anymore. Astrology is just one big picture of the inner workings of the 'One Connection' of life working together.

I do so very much enjoy looking at this piece. Everyone is beautifully represented; even if Sagittarius is going to strip the skin off his elbow (I've nearly done that often enough :D ).

This is delightful! I worked in a Calendar Club store for seasonal employment this year, and I feel that the 2012 Llewellyn calendar pales in comparison to your 2014 version. My fiance peered over my shoulder and commented the it seemed that the characters themselves were made of stars-- perfect!

This is amazing, and I love that Sagittarius appears to be a woman, and is next to Virgo (as a lesbian Virgo dating a Sag) :)

lol! I was going to suggest this for ~DigitalArtists but its already in.

I love how have you managed to do the zodiacal signs -something done a lot of times, but anyway, original in your vision.
Congratulations for this piece!
