15 Years of Asking For Trouble 2023 Calendar

My 2023 calendar design is now finished and it celebrates my 15th anniversary year with some of my most popular food and drink characters.

I had a different idea originally but couldn’t quite come up with 12 things (maybe by next year!) so I changed tack completely and realised an anniversary design would be nice to share with everyone. I kept it food and drink themed as I’d have way too many characters to choose from otherwise.

I’ll have postcards to sell in my shop in a few weeks but in the meantime you can find it in my print-on-demand stores as tea towel calendars, postcards, prints, mugs, stickers, notebooks and magnets.
