The Velvet Onion Calendar 2011

© Paul Holmes / The Velvet Onion

The Velvet Onion is proud to bring you its own 2011 calendar!

In lieu of an official Boosh calendar on sale this year, we decided it’d be a great idea to offer up an alternative to that rubbish one your nan got you, and make a fully fledged 12-month calendar for you to download, print off and stick on your wall.

As such, we’ve recruited some of the greatest names in Booshdom, alongside some truly wonderful photographers, and their kind contributions and a lot of hard work have culminated in what we’re hoping is one of our proudest achievements.  We’ve even left you a little space to write down your own notes & birthdays… no stone has been left unturned!

We would like to thank ALL of the artists we feature in front of and behind the camera, and anyone else who has helped make this happen.  These people had to put up with our editor in chief hounding them for photographs until they relented and blessed us with some beautiful imagery to present to you.  So, in alphabetical order rather than order of preference, please love and worship the following:

Paulyne Antoniou, Julian Barratt, Matt Berry, Dave Brown, Zöé Caldwell, Angel Ceballos, Dan Clark, James Cook, Chris Corner, Jimmy Crippen, Sue Denim, Antony Elvin, Suzy Evelyn-Hall, Andrea Fröhner, Rich Fulcher, Andy Hollingworth, Colin Hoult, Kerie Leisch, Alice Lowe, David McNeill, Ben Meadows, Kim Noble, Steve Oram, Dee Plume, Holly-Jane Shears, Gareth Tunley, Sam Ward and Tiger Aspect Television.

Please please let us know what you think of the calendar.  If you print it out and stick it up – why not take a photo of it and send it our way via the forum, a comment below, facebook, twitter, you name it.  If there’s enough interest, we’ll try again next year!

Happy new year to all of our peelers – we’ll see you in 2012. Stay peeled.

      Hi! Julian IS on there… he’s our June photo, supplied by Dave Brown. We were hoping to include something from Noel but he was ridiculously busy at the time and couldn’t confirm anything before the deadline. If a 2012 calendar goes ahead we’ll try again!
