April 2018 Illustrated Wallpaper

April 2018 Illustrated Wallpaper

Happy April, and Happy Easter, for those who celebrate. If you don't celebrate, then cheers to more sunshine - which we are finally having here in Atlanta! And what inspired April's Wallpaper. On my quest for more color, I have fallen even more deeply in love with royal blues and bright yellows. I hope you enjoy this happy wallpaper! Sending you good vibes at the start of this month.

March Desktop Wallpaper by Paper Raven Co.

 

This month was all about COLOR. I love rich, china blues. It's been incredibly rainy here in Atlanta (like, for weekssss), so I also wanted to do a tribute to the downpour, and the resulting bloom-age that is slowly filling up my studio windows :) My dog, Patty, does not like it one bit (diva).

Now for the Wallpaper!

Hello February!

Hello February!

Happy February! I read the other day that February is the halfway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, so this month's wallpaper is dedicated to the contemplation of the seeds we will plant this Spring season, metaphorically and physically. I love that idea, and I wanted to create an illustration that symbolized new growth, even in the last winter months. I'm very much looking forward to the warmer weather!

Welcome December!

Welcome December!

Happy December! We had a blast over Thanksgiving and the Holiday Weekend! Thank you so so much for Shopping Small. When you Shop Small, you aren't giving a CEO their 2nd vacation home, you're helping a family buy groceries, you're helping a business owner save to invest in new products, and (in my case) helping a fur-momma pay for a needed surgery for her puppy, Patty (who is recovering like a champ!). Your support really, really makes a difference, and I want to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who supported Small Businesses last weekend. We love you, you are literally making our dreams come true. If that's not good karma, I don't know what is.

Now, on to the Wallpaper! Click the image below to get the Wallpaper.

Happy November!

Happy November!

Happy November! I hope everyone had a great Halloween and did something fun and/or spooky. For this month's Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper, I really wanted a constant reminder of gratitude. The holidays are on their way, and being busy with a to-do list sometimes makes us forget to stop, take a breath, and be thankful. So, if I can be honest, I did this wallpaper really for me. For me to remember, when I turn my computer on to start the work day, to be extra grateful for the customers, and clients, and interactions I have that make my business successful. And that starts with you! I hope this month brings you peacefulness, clarity, and renewed relationships with those you love.

Happy August! It's my birthday month! *confetti*

Happy August! It's my birthday month! *confetti*

Hey, Happy August 1st! I'm particularly excited about this month because it's my birthday month yasssss! For this month's Desktop Wallpaper, I drew inspiration from all of the wonderfully overgrown plants on my balcony. It's been one of those great summers where it thunderstorms every afternoon (my favorite, not my dog's), perpetually smells like rain, and the plants have just been exploding. It's awesome. I sketched this in our sunroom with the door open and the smell of basil flooding in, while my sweet Patty was sunbathing in her corner of the balcony - it's a peaceful memory,  I hope that comes through in the final illustration.

I would love to see your desktop or studio space if you use the wallpaper, so feel free to snap a photo and tag me on Instagram so I can see and give you high-fives. Bonus points if you hoard plants like I do. I really need to make a "Plant Lady is the New Cat Lady" Art Print, yea?

Thank you guys so much!
xoxo, Erin

July Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper by Paper Raven Co.

Happy July 1st! I hope everyone is having a great summer so far. This month, I wanted to experiment with some new lettering techniques and fun, poppy colors. I created this illustration using my Tombow MONO Drawing Pens, and then finished it with color in Photoshop. Later in the month I'll be traveling to the Bahamas, and the bright hues definitely inspired me here. Hope you like it! Click on the image below to receive the Wallpaper, and enjoy.
