The New 2018 Wallpapers
This year I’m introducing a second version designed for your smart phone or tablet, in addition to the desktop version.
I have also updated the calendar again for 2018. The layout has been refined and the majority of the type is set in Artegra Sans and Artegra Slab. Designing a calendar each month has become a welcome part of my routine where I take time to reflect on the previous month, and look forward to the next one. These are now a consistent series of monthly calendars I began in the early part of 2015.
Maintenance Series ¶ Issue Five
The May edition of the 2018 calendar is now live!
Issue Five of the Maintenance Series was taken during my time in the Faroe Islands. Depicted is a woman painting a building foundation and fence during the spring time in the village of Klaksvík. In the Faroes many of the concrete foundations were quite high and expressive like the house shown here—interesting considering we try so hard hide it in North America.
Maintenance Series ¶ Issue Three
The March edition of the 2018 calendar is now live!
Issue Three of the Maintenance Series was taken during a site visit to the Lunenburg Academy Building in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. It is currently undergoing an exterior restoration, and there has been significant effort made to save as much wood as possible, in place. You can see some of the dutchman repairs (pieces cut out and replaced) and some of the new shingle that has been added before the new paint is applied.
As people become more mobile I’ve had several requests for an on-the-go quick view calendar. I also noticed that there was huge variance in themes month-to-month, so I will be sticking with the theme of architecture and maintenance — an ongoing interest of mine over the past few years — simply entitled “Maintenance Series”.

This photograph was taken in the North End of Halifax in the months leading up to winter.
