About the Author
Steve McDonald is a Canadian artist and lifelong traveller who has lived in Italy, Saudi Arabia, India and Indonesia. He now lives in Ontario, Canada. Steve McDonald doesn't just draw the cities of the world. A lifelong traveller since his family moved to the Middle East in 1979, he's lived in Saudi Arabia, Italy, India and Indonesia, visited dozens of other countries and spent the better part of two decades travelling his native Canada from coast to coast via car, bus, helicopter, canoe, ship and on foot. Everywhere he goes he soaks up the local colour, the architecture and, most of all, the lines. Steve's process includes observing, sketching onsite and taking photos for reference in the studio, as well as working from many noted photographers' material. He lays down initial groundwork lines in pencil or on a tablet and then gets busy with the details. Although he works in many media, including acrylics, watercolours, and coloured dyes, his favourite is simple pen and ink. When he's not knee-deep in the intricate details of his drawings, Steve is likely surfing (most recently in the waves off the coast of Bali, where he lived for two years with his family) or cross-country skiing in the snowdrifts of rural Ontario, which he currently calls home. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, Steve's work has been showcased in many gallery exhibitions, television documentaries and various publications and can be found in many private homes and corporate collections worldwide.

AND there are three new exclusive images in this calendar to boot.
There are twelve drawings plus a bonus page of 4 months of 2016. So you have no excuse for not getting the calendar right now [in July 2016] because in a couple of months you'll be able to track your Autumn 2016 on it.
If you haven't run into Steve McDonald before, these are his architectural drawings for coloring. They are just the right scale that you can take any number of directions with them - color them as cityscapes, add tons of detail, create sunrise, sunset, or night scenes, or take them into an abstract color field avenue. If you're getting this for someone else as a gift, this sort of openness with the coloring makes it accessible for almost anyone.
