September 2020 Desktop Wallpaper

Happy September, friends.

For this month's illustration, I wanted to capture that between-season feeling. We're not really in Summer, and we're not really in Fall quite yet. It feels like we're between seasons in our lives right now too, and I think many can relate to that. We're waiting to exhale on so many aspects of life right now, but I'm confident that if we put one foot in front of the other, and keep moving forward with good intentions and open hearts, we will get to a better outcome for all. :) I also wanted to include mushrooms and butterflies in this month's wallpaper because we have so many in our yard right now!

July 2020 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Happy July, everyone! It's an understatement to say that the last few months have been a challenge, and also a revolution of thought and action. Exciting and difficult changes are starting to happen, and we at Paper Raven Co. are committed to continuing in this fight.

That said, the importance of resting and appreciating the simple joys of life has become a critical point of balance for many of us. I wanted to illustrate something that simply just made me happy, something that felt hopeful. Additionally, it was only fitting to focus on the color yellow this month: a color symbolizing awareness, education and new thought, mixed with optimism and hope for the future.

April 2020 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Happy April, I hope you are staying safe and well during this uncertain time. I wanted to bring a little happiness into your inbox today with this Sweet Snail - he's toting his home along with him. To me, a snail was the perfect metaphor for this time in our collective existence: we've all been forced to slow down (which in some ways has been a blessing), we're all curled up in our homes, and we've been given an opportunity to take in the world around us and our values with more clarity than ever. Also, who doesn't love a cute little snail? I hope this brings you joy.

Happy March, everyone! Even though the weather has been like riding a rollercoaster lately, on warmer days I've really been enjoying my afternoon walks with Patty, seeing all of the new life and greenery peeking out, ready for Spring. I take a lot of comfort in the Cycles of Nature - they are a beautiful demonstration in balance. Here is a wonderful quote I read earlier today that I wanted to share with you: 
 

Nature does not hurry;
yet everything is accomplished.
- Lao Tzu

Thank you so much for following along, and I hope you have a peaceful month ahead of you; one that reveals the start of growth from the seeds you've been planting all year, after the quiet stillness of Winter.

January 2020 Desktop Wallpaper

Happy January - it's a Shiny New Decade! What are your plans for 2020? I hope you have something wonderful in store :) As for me, my resolutions include giving myself more White Space, healthier work-life boundaries (hard for creatives!), and a healthier lifestyle with more gym visits and activity that I ENJOY (that one is predictable, I know, but it's true!). 

For me, this year is about keeping it simple, so with that in mind, I created this January 2020 Desktop Calendar, and focused on the hand-lettering, with just a few little embellishments.

November 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

November 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

I trust everyone had a wonderful Halloween! We got totally mobbed by cute kids Trick or Treating last night, Patty dressed up as a Banana Split, and Daniel won a costume contest for his rendition of Garfield, complete with giant paper mache head. All in all, it was a spooky success. I also talked about my haunted apartment in my Halloween Animated Instagram Post.

For this month, I wanted to capture the feeling of coziness (SAT Word Bonus Points: "hygge", pronounced "hue-guh"), and do something a little more fun than just your typical (but lovely) fall leaves. I hope you like it! I love how the calendar fits in the camping mug, lol.

October 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper: A Special Tribute

October 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper: A Special Tribute

It's finally October - or as I like to call it, "the most wonderful time of the year". For this month, I want to create something a little more involved and special than my usual freebies. So I illustrated a tribute to the legendary true-crime comedy podcast, My Favorite Murder. Now, while I am a huge advocate for getting out into nature, one of the things I love about this podcast is that Karen + Georgia (the hosts) are huge advocates for women's safety, awareness and defense. So get out there (especially in the beautiful Fall temps!) and hike, explore and discover to your hearts content, but also tell a friend if you're going alone, be alert and responsive to your surroundings, and trust your gut if something seems off. Now, have a great Autumn!

September 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

For September, I've already decided I will be listening to Lizzo nonstop. Other things I will be doing include making a really good Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake, painting a mural with Atlanta's Forward Warrior, and showing a piece at ABV Gallery. I'm really looking forward to this month, because it marks the beginning of Fall, all of my favorite things, and most importantly, we're only a month away from HALLOWEEN. So.
