Flight of fancy

With one year winding down and another about to dawn, calendars are a hot item. From kitsch to cute. Crass to artistic, there’s something for everyone.

What I love most about the array is the discovery. I ogled a pug calendar, of course. And admired the piggies, especially the one dressed in a pink tutu. But Rob Gonsalves’s surreal, imaginative and whimisical work has me thirsting to know more in the new year. I’ll work on that. Meanwhile, below are a few links to get to know his work yourself. And, of course, his delightful “Written Worlds,” courtesy of Discovery Galleries.
