February 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

February 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Happy February! I have been watching a good deal of the Great British Baking Show while the temps drop (but not by too much - stay safe, midwest friends!), and for inspiration for this month's desktop wallpaper, featuring flowers and little candies. I joke with Daniel that all I want for Valentine's Day is a Second Halloween, but after making this illustration, perhaps this year I can settle on a Whitman's Sampler.

Happy New Year! The January 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Happy 2019! I hope you had a restful holiday, and are entering the new year with energy and optimism. This month, I wanted to create a wallpaper that was simple but elegant, with white space for breathing, since that is part of my New Years Resolution this year. I am hoping to simplify, and achieve more of a work-life balance. And also have more fun! What are your resolutions??

Happy December! This month, of course, I am looking forward to the holidays with my family, starting a few new traditions (like Daniel and my Christmas Tree!), and enjoying some time to relax. December is always a great time to reflect back on the year, and I am so thankful for all of your support. This year has exceeded my expectations, and I feel true gratitude. Thank you for being with me on this journey.

Happy November! This month, I will be gearing up for the holidays, launching our 2019 Folk Art Florals Calendar (coming November 5th!), and donating to some good causes. Most importantly, I will be VOTING! Who's with me?

This month's calendar was created in my ProCreate App for the iPad Pro - I have been loving this workflow so much! I typically use the Dry Ink brush under Inking for my linework.

It's My Birthday Month! August 2018

Happy August! This month is my birthday month, and I'll be turning 32 on August 8th! I wanted to create an extra-special desktop wallpaper for you this month, that captures the feeling of warm summer nights in the backyard - because that's how I've been spending the last few months. We've even seen some fireflies, which is one of my fav childhood memories.

May 2018 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

This month is a big month for us here at Paper Raven Co.! We're moving house and studio (again, woof!) and we're coming off of a bonkers month of Holiday deadlines. It was especially refreshing to paint with some lovely sherbet pinks and bright, fresh greens. Daniel, Patty and I have been taking every chance we have to be outside in the sunshine, and I am excited af for the new *backyard* that's coming with our new house!! Tiki torches, BBQs, string lights, sunny morning coffee, lots of gardening. Lately I've really been trying to count the little, everyday joys in my life.

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! 
Click on the graphic above to download the free desktop wallpaper. AND, after many requests, I have made a coordinating phone background as well, tucked in there too. Sorry it took me so long, y'all!

If you like these, please tell your friends about it, and tag me on Instagram with a pic of your desktop or phone in your feed or stories! Cheers, Enjoy, and hopefully it's not too rainy where you live.

As always, thank you for following my work. I love the experimentation + freedom these monthly wallpapers bring, and I'm so happy to share them with you.

Warmly, Erin

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.
