This months desktop wallpaper is inspired
by the "it's still warm but cooler for us" autumn weather we're having here in South Florida. Some days it's been in the 70's, (yay) and I couldn't be happier. I love Fall and this time of year in general, even though in Miami you don't necessarily see the drastic autumn leaves and other beautiful intense weather changes you would elsewhere, but this warmer Fall climate has it's own beauty. I would like to be able to legitimately wear a scarf at least a few times this year (yes, I love my sweater weather clothes), but hey, I'm not complaining. :)
I hope you enjoy this weather inspired wallpaper, even though this piece
oddly makes me think of light emerging from caves(?). I know that sounds
like total bullshit, but it's true.
Alright, to the wallpapers...
For this month I created two versions of the desktop wallpaper, one with a November 2013 calendar and one that is a design-only version good for anytime. Also for the first time, I created a wallpaper for mobile phones.
Recently I've set aside a few water color projects and micron doodles and found myself a bit invitation happy; I've been designing a few digital printable invitations for my etsy shop. A while ago I used to sell art prints there but have changed things around, mostly offering digital paper goods, moving my art prints to society6 for now. I usually don't post much anymore about the etsy shop but wanted to share these. A lot of these invitations started as personal projects for friends and family and I realized how fun they are to make and have kept it up.
By the way, excuse the crappy lighting. (Kudos to those who have this product photography thing down, ah). As I was taking the photos the sun was shining, then a few moments later it immediately started getting cloudy, the lighting changing minute to minute. (Again, ah).
Once again and very realistically drawn, everyday random moments and wishes told in traditional stick figure — today:
I actually created this about three months ago, but since the whole French thing was short lived, (I'll stick with good ole' English and Spanish for now), I wasn't going to post it but recently rediscovered it and figured why not. What's funny is the other day I was watching this video by Marie Forleo on clearing your lists, creating mental space and her process of really breaking down a to-do list — so simple but very useful — and there's a part where she mentions the "Meh List". She actually says "...you know, things like learn a new language" and it had me laughing out loud. With some conscious tweaking, I've begun to really shift internally and reprioritize the things I choose to devote my time and energy to, those things that really feel right to me, whatever the reason for each (not just design and business-wise, but personally too). What have you shifted or cleared out from your daily lists or life, those exhausting never ending items or tasks, those things that are just not right anymore, if any?
