free june desktop wallpapers

I’ve been a lazy doodler lately, partly because I’ve been working on some custom orders I can’t share just yet, but also partly because, well… see the part about lazy. It’s just too nice outside to sit in front of a computer all day!

So June’s free desktop wallpapers are simple and fun and only a week late. 🙂 Click below to download your favorite:

illustration friday: early

illustration friday: early

“Early” is a relative term. Never was this so clear as when I had my daughter a year and a half ago.

In college, I mapped out my schedule such that I could avoid 8 a.m. classes whenever possible. I made that mistake in my first semester, all for a Women’s Studies class during which I could barely keep my eyes open.  That was my first and only early morning class.

Six years later, our newborn daughter sleeps until 5:30 a.m. and I do a victory dance. Even now, waking up at 7:30 a.m. is something of a luxury in this house. Funny how things change!

This was drawn loosely from a photo of Elspeth when she was about three months old. I thought I’d play around with a different style… it didn’t quite capture what I wanted to capture, but it gave me the opportunity to experiment, I suppose.

I am not a fan of heights. Not by far. Looking at the final drawing is making me a little queasy, but it was fun trying to get the perspective right. She’s pretty fearless if you ask me!

A quick, last-minute entry into this week’s Illustration Friday! I’ve been busy with custom orders and photography, but I wanted to get something out there. This cute little butterfly will soon be up in the shop as a print-a-doodle.
