Your assignment is to create a piece for a 2012 fashion illustration calendar. You will be assigned a month to create a singular image/scene for.  Illustrate your assigned month considering first the mood, tone, and holidays/seasons associated with it. The image must be 10"x10" and have typography depicting the name of your month incorporated in or alongside your image. When picking garments for your piece keep the season in mind. Don't just give us a single figure standing on a color field. Find a concept that illustrates an aspect of your assigned month creatively. Remember, you want to make an interesting image you won't be bored of looking at for a whole month. Make it good.  
Additional Option:
1. You can do a 10"x10" month illustration including a slogan or the month in your illustration
2. Illustrate 2 images....1 10"x10" month illustration without words, and 2nd handletter the month in a 10"x3" space. The 10"x3" space is up to you; you can have the type however large or small within that space.


Consider how your figure is going to be in the environment. 
Consider how your environment is going to stand in its space.

When handlettering the month/slogan appropriate for the month, think how it can be illustrative/appropriate to the month. 
Be creative.
