Happy November!

Happy November! I hope everyone had a great Halloween and did something fun and/or spooky. For this month's Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper, I really wanted a constant reminder of gratitude. The holidays are on their way, and being busy with a to-do list sometimes makes us forget to stop, take a breath, and be thankful. So, if I can be honest, I did this wallpaper really for me. For me to remember, when I turn my computer on to start the work day, to be extra grateful for the customers, and clients, and interactions I have that make my business successful. And that starts with you! I hope this month brings you peacefulness, clarity, and renewed relationships with those you love....

October is my jam!

Happy October! I myself like Pumpkin, but I'll be the first to admit that we all need to settle down a little. I don't need Pumpkin-flavored jello or cereal or toilet paper, or whatever. Just let me make a pie, put on my sweaters (Atlanta is still 80+ degrees, WTH), and watch horror movies. But if Pumpkin is your jam, you do you - live your life, I support that! Pumpkin was the inspiration for this month's Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper, so I hope you enjoy!   Click the image above to download the October Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper, and go on with your bad pumpkin-loving (or hating, it's cool) self. Feel free to give me a virtual high-five by tagging me on...

Happy August! It's my birthday month! *confetti*

Hey, Happy August 1st! I'm particularly excited about this month because it's my birthday month yasssss! For this month's Desktop Wallpaper, I drew inspiration from all of the wonderfully overgrown plants on my balcony. It's been one of those great summers where it thunderstorms every afternoon (my favorite, not my dog's), perpetually smells like rain, and the plants have just been exploding. It's awesome. I sketched this in our sunroom with the door open and the smell of basil flooding in, while my sweet Patty was sunbathing in her corner of the balcony - it's a peaceful memory,  I hope that comes through in the final illustration.

Happy July!

Happy July 1st! I hope everyone is having a great summer so far. This month, I wanted to experiment with some new lettering techniques and fun, poppy colors. I created this illustration using my Tombow MONO Drawing Pens, and then finished it with color in Photoshop. Later in the month I'll be traveling to the Bahamas, and the bright hues definitely inspired me here. Hope you like it!
