2016 Calendar Printable

8:55 AM

This is it! After months of drawing, thinking, designing and editing, the Home Cyn Home 2016 Calendar is ready for you to download and print.

Like it was the case last year, the calendar has a bit of an Indian feel too it. Be it the gumboots adorned with cherries to represent the monsoon in July, or the mango for march, or even the back to school graphic in June (yes the Academic year more or less start around that time over here).
I of course kept it as secular as possible as well with only August, October and December hinting at festivals celebrated in India (and I still used the most un-religious way to represent them).

Each month has a water colour graphic painted by yours truely, and signed so that nobody can really claim it as their own (unless you call yourself Cyn H.)
This year, I will start by offering the entire calendar for download in one PDF file like I did last year. But! I also will offer the Calendar page for each month all through the year (on the 1st of each month to be precise).

If you are a big advance planning kind of person (like me), go ahead and get your copy right now.

I could leave you at that for now, but, I want to conclude with the usual copyright speech :

I have worked my ass off on this calendar, it might not look like it, but it is. Look at it! I hand painted all the months graphics! It is by no mean a small task. I then spend more time scanning it, cleaning it of all non essential pixels, cropped it, resized it, and integrated it in my calendar grid design.
I also put all the text and all the numbers on each page manually. These 26MB of data in the file represent HOURS and HOURS of work.

So please, respect it, and do not redistribute it as if it was your own. If you choose to include it in a curated list of 2016 calendars, have the decency to offer the link back to my blog.

And, if you really like it, don't forget to mention it in the comments section below. I love hearing from you guys, and I usually make a point to reply to comments as soon as possible.

Update : 

2016 has come and gone, and I removed the links to the files. If you are looking for a calendar printable know that my 2017 edition is up for download, find it out in this blog post.

    1. Each page is a A4 format, so I think the best would be to have it printed as individual pages and then have them bound together. I am not sure which website will ofer that service online. Vistaprint maybe? Or ask a photo printing shop in your neighbourhood to see if they can do the job.

  2. Love it! Especially all the handpainted pics referring to the unique seasons of the Subcontinent. Oh I wish I had a printer! But alas no more. Do you have a scanner or do you go to a shop & have the paintings scanned?

    1. I have a printer/scanner so I did all the scanning myself. Then I had to trim all the white space out in Paint Shop Pro. Next year I will be doing the work in Photoshop since I started using it.
