A few months back, I wrote about Scott Lenhardt’s quest to make his page-a-day nude calendar a reality. Folks, I am here to say it is here, it is for sale, and it is so damn charming. Behold, the Twenty Four Hour Woman! She installs air conditioners, she works a visor, she sells twist cones at an ice cream stand — all in the very endearing nude. (Because who doesn’t love turnip-shaped boobs?)
But how did this little lady come to be? Scott explains the Twenty Four Woman’s origins as such:
Twenty Four Hour Woman is a one-a-day calendar not unlike the popular Far Side calendars of the ’80s. It’s a simple idea that is meant to celebrate the woman caught in the act of whatever it is she is doing, one day at a time. This nude series started as an exercise a few years ago in my studio as a way to warm up my brain, get my hand moving and help ease any seriousness that might have been floating around. Each day of this 5″ X 4″ (approx.) tear-off calendar contains a different little drawing of a naked lady doing something different for every day of the year. I have spent the last year-and-a-half illustrating the limitless list of activities and tasks and have done my best to do so with love and honesty.
I’m so excited to greet each new day of 2013 with the Twenty Four Hour Woman.
