I’m a big fan of the Don’t Break the Chain method of achieving my goals. For each day that I accomplish the 3 main tasks that I set out to complete, I mark a day off the calendar. It’s a great way to visually map progress.
Usually, I buy Austin Kleon’s Steal Like an Artist calendar. Sadly, this year there was no 2019 version. However, I highly recommend turning them into framed art. You can still purchase the 2017 and 2018 versions on Amazon.
I consider calendars to be a form of art. They inspire me both to keep working towards my goals and the artists publishing their work through the medium.
This year, I had to find a new calendar to buy. And me being me, I looked through all 100 search results pages on Amazon — so you don’t have to. With that being said, enjoy this curated list of calendars from artists I admire.
This was my choice for 2019. I’ve always been a fan of The Oatmeal, Matthew Inman, so it was nice to support an artist that I admire.
The Art of David Olenick in calendar form! I’ve purchased a few of his greeting card designs over the years and enjoy his lighthearted humor.
Visually I love the style of his work. This edition of his calendar includes cute stickers to personalize with.
From the Awkward Yeti ( Nick Seluk ) is the totally relatable yet cute calendar, Heart & Brain.
The legend. This has also been displayed in my household. It’s nice to see with every new year, they add different paintings than the year before.
From my favorite science Youtube channel, Kurzgesagt: In a Nutshell. This was the calendar I most wanted for 2019 but unfortunately it was sold out.
