CalendarThe work of acclaimed rural artist Simon Trinder is featured in BASC’s 2017 calendar, which is on sale now.

Simon has been a professional artist for more than 15 years and paints wildlife and landscape sketches from memory. He is particularly well known for his work on wildfowl and wild places.

Simon said: “It has always been a great honour to be asked to do the cartoons for the BASC calendar. I enjoy having a bit of fun at the expense of shooting, dog training and country life in general. I feel that we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously sometimes, even though our sport means so much to us.”

The calendar can be purchased from Fur Feather and Fin for £5 here and will also be sold from BASC stands at shooting events around the UK.

David Ilsley, BASC’s head of marketing and membership services, said: “This calendar features 12 designs by a great cartoonist. Each month has its own hilarious artwork and features one full line for each date, with plenty of room to add shooting dates, holidays, birthdays and more.”
