something fishy, an animated, illustrated, landscape-style WordPress theme

Something Fishy WordPress Theme

Something Fishy WordPress Theme

I recently designed a new WordPress theme based on this undersea illustration. My favorite part about Something Fishy is the animation, and how it changes slightly depending on how much or little content you’re viewing. You can download the theme here, or even use it on your WordPress.com blog!

Most of my illustrations are related to WordPress themes these days, and this is no exception. I recently created a new theme called Pachyderm and this is the default header image — so cute! I love that WordPress allows me to combine my love for web development and illustration. I may consider adding this to the shop as a print…

Cute kitchen doodles – Vintage Kitchen WordPress theme

Pear study illustration for Vintage Kitchen

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.

vintage camera illustrations

Pentax K1000

I haven’t done much illustration lately, but I have been working quite a bit on WordPress themes! I recently created a new theme called Vintage Camera, which features my illustrations as part of the design:

I had fun drawing these!  They’re in a slightly different style from my usual work… the hand-drawn style isn’t my strong suit but when I asked my not-as-photo-savvy husband what they looked like, he recognized them as cameras. I’ll call that a success. 🙂

new winter website design

Hey, look! My Calobee Doodles website design won a free WordPress shirt from wpshirts.com for its creativity in design and use of WordPress. Pardon my geek-ness for a moment, but for those of you who love WordPress as much as I do, WPShirts is all about showing the love–literally. I will wear my new “Powered by WP” shirt with pride.

Speaking of the website, I decided it was time to swap over to the new website design for snow season. It’s beginning to look a lot like winter here! Brrr!
