May 2022 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

In Atlanta, the weather has turned full-on gorgeous. Daniel and I spent a few days in the mountains (pics below!) and I came back feeling so refreshed and aligned with my life priorities. In that sense, I wanted to create a joyful, exuberant illustration for this month - there is so much to anticipate! I love this time of year the most, and I hope you enjoy this month's wallpaper :)

February 2022 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Happy February!

My inspiration for this month's illustration was Pantone's Color of the Year: Very-Peri! I wanted to create an illustration that evoked the transition from winter to early Spring, and I hope you will enjoy it! ;) What do you think of Very-Peri? Are you a fan? It's growing on me!

January 2021 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper + Happy New Year!

Happy 2021, everyone! We made it!


A very big pat on the back to you for making it to the other side of 2020! While we're not walking through a portal today into a world free of problems, it does feel good to step into a New Year with a fresh attitude and hopeful mindset. We may still need to work to clear some hurtles, but with continued work and focus, I am hoping that this year we'll see a little more peace, magic, prosperity and love.

If you're a member of the community who has suffered a loss in 2020 - we see you. A New Year and all of its promise is exciting to celebrate, but it doesn't take away real hurts from the past year. Whether it's a loved one, your job or financial security, or your mental health, last year took a real and tangible toll and I just wanted to take a moment here to acknowledge that as well, and let you know we're thinking about you, and sending you thoughts for peace, renewal and joy in 2021.

October 2020 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Happy October, everyone.

A short and sweet blurb about this month's illustration, because even before we're properly into the Fall Season, our Holiday prep at the Paper Raven Co. Studio is going at full steam!

I wanted to do a simple illustration to capture some of the Halloweenie things I look forward to this month! Halloween is my favorite holiday, and because we're not sure exactly how we're going to be celebrating this year, I wanted to at least celebrate with a sort-of spooky desktop wallpaper. Burning question: what was your BEST Halloween costume growing up?

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.

March 2020 Desktop Wallpaper

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.
