Every now and then the perfect opportunity comes along that you just can't pass up. In 2012, it was a project for the talented designers at 427 Design. They wanted to produce a retro pin up calendar for their client Matco Tools and they needed an illustrator who could make the women and the products shine. It was a blast to work on the calendar with them and hope we can do it again next year!

427 Design posted an awesome "making of" page here.

And finally, here is the finished product.
