illustration friday: proverb – a witch’s poison apple

illustration friday: proverb - an apple a day - cute witch

This week’s Illustration Friday theme is “proverb,” and I chose “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”… unless that apple is a witch’s poison apple! I’m in the mood for all things Halloween, so I’ve been looking for an excuse to doodle something spooky. I’m considering making this available as a seasonal print in the Calobee Doodles shop, although I fear all the black-on-black will be difficult to reproduce.

free desktop wallpaper – august(ish)

august 2010 free desktop wallpaper

august 2010 free desktop wallpaper

This month’s free desktop download was inspired by our recent trip to the “big city,” ie. Boston. It may not be the largest like it in the world, but it still makes all of Maine’s cities look like quaint little villages. As much as I enjoy traveling, doing so always reminds me just how much I love my home–small and quaint as it may be. Click to download your free desktop wallpaper!

july’s free desktop wallpaper – fireflies at night

fireflies are nature's sparklers--free july desktop wallpaper download

“Fireflies are nature’s sparklers.” I’m quite enchanted by this scene… the little girl reminds me of my daughter, although that wasn’t my intention when doodling. I suppose her sweet, inquisitive nature snuck into my subconscious when I was busy doing boring grown-up things like balancing my checkbook and loading the dishwasher. There’s nothing like a little kid to remind you it’s the simpler things in life that make the daily drudgery worthwhile.

Ah, but I digress. I hope this summery illustrative desktop wallpaper makes up for June’s slightly last-minute design. Click above to download!
