Wong Kar-Wai calendar

A collection of monthly calendars. Each calendar contains visual elements sourced from and inspired by the work of filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai. This is a group project by members of wongkarwai.net; each one of the calendars for the year is created by a different member. You can view and download the most recent calendar here at the beginning of each month. An archive of all past calendars is also available.

The theme for the calendars changes each year.
In 2005, each artist chose one WKW film as inspiration.
In 2006, each artist chose two WKW films and created a visual mashup.
In 2007, each artist chose a director other than WKW and remixed his/her works with WKW's films.
In 2008, each artist chose a quote from a WKW film as the basis.
In 2009, each artist chose a song from a WKW film as the basis.

Below are my calendars, from newest to oldest, for the months of July 2009, August 2008, January 2007, May 2006, and April 2005.
For April 2005, I also made an April Fools version for laughs.
