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.
I don’t want to be one of those people who’s all about Christmas before we’ve even had a chance to put up the Halloween decorations… so I apologize in advance for this post, because that’s exactly what I’m about to do.
These cute holiday postcards are now available in the Calobee Doodles shop in sets of 5 or 10. I’m attempting to get a jump start on the season because last year was too crazy, and cards didn’t even get posted until late November. I’m hoping to add a few more designs to the mix a little later this year, so keep an eye out for those, too!
If you’re one of those who likes to be prepared, 1) I envy you and 2) stop by the Calobee Doodles shop to pick up a little holiday cheer!
I recently finished this sweet custom couple’s portrait for a client. Aren’t these two cute? Illustrating this reminded me why I love working on portraits. As much as I enjoy the business-y, promotional side of design, it’s nice to do something more personal once in a while.
There’s a new October wallpaper in progress, but in the meantime, here’s a doodle I created a few years ago that perfectly fits my mood. Picking apples and carving pumpkins, getting lost in corn mazes, yummy baking and hot soups and stews–fall is officially here and I’m loving it. “I found the perfect one” was one of my first illustrations inspired by this wonderful autumn feeling, and it remains a favorite.
It may be hard to believe, but now is a good time to start thinking about seasonal marketing–Halloween will be here before you know it! Mason Girl Cupcakes knows that, and she requested a few custom postcard designs for the upcoming holidays. This was my favorite from the bunch.
