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!

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.

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