Maybe pcal can be used for this purpose.
I haven't tested it, but the manpage says:

   The Date File
       By default, pcal simply prints an empty calendar.  Its real power is in
       its ability to place ``events'' (and, for monthly PostScript calendars,
       Encapsulated PostScript images [e.g. photos and icons]) in appropriate
       days on the calendar, thus allowing the user to create personalized
       calendars.  This is achieved through the use of the ``date file''.


   Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) Images
       For monthly PostScript calendars only, pcal supports the embedding of
       one or more EPS images (photos, icons, etc) into any given day of the
       month.  (EPS image specifications in the pcal date file are ignored for
       yearly PostScript calendars and for all HTML calendars.)
