The X-Files “Truths” Posters, Revised

I haven’t done much in the way of original design or illustration lately (read: zip, zilch, nada) but I’ve been looking at these posters, having recently curated a collection of X-Files fan art for my office, and I wanted to play with them a bit.

The original colors never set right with me, so I thought I’d try a different color scheme. I also tweaked the details while I was in there, since the Fight the Future poster in particular never felt quite finished.

I think I like these versions better, but I’ll come back to them in a few days to see if anything else jumps out at me.

(Updated with less pinkish colors, and I forgot I Want To Believe!)

mason jars

cute mason jarsSo versatile, and quite trendy as a home decor item right now, a series of canning jars in different states of use — just playing with variations on a theme. I like how this came together. It’s also available in the Calobee Doodles Etsy shop as a print!

Cute kitchen doodles – Vintage Kitchen WordPress theme

Citrus illustration for Vintage Kitchen

I was recently asked to design a premium theme for WordPress.com and part of doing so involved illustrating these cuties. I went with a food-themed design (and you all know how much I enjoy drawing food, if the Portfolio section of this website is any indication) and four different color schemes. It’s hard to pick a personal favorite, but I’m partial to the citrus one.

november 2010 - free pink cupcakes desktop

I am so very late with November’s desktop wallpaper that I decided there wasn’t much point to working with a Thanksgiving theme. Instead, here’s a free desktop wallpaper for everyday use. I’ve been working on several custom cupcake-related projects lately, so I have the sweet treats on the brain. I’ll do something seasonal for Christmas soon.

Also available: A “flipped” version for those of you who keep your desktop icons on the left and a blue version for those who aren’t as fond of pink as I am (unfathomable!) Enjoy!

holiday postcard – season’s tweetings!

holiday postcard design - season's tweetings

I’m trying to think ahead this year, so I’ve been brainstorming holiday-oriented designs. This clever little birdy amused me, so I think you’ll see this offered in the shop soon as a postcard design!

And yes, I know I’m very late with November’s desktop wallpaper. I’ve been so busy with custom work (more on that soon) I haven’t had as many opportunities to focus on my own things. November is hardly an inspiring month in this neck of the woods in any case–so bleak and gray. But I’m sure I can come up with something involving Thanksgiving turkey. Mmm, turkey.
