Desktop Wallpaper Download - November 2017

We are slowly descending into the Winter months and with that I wanted to celebrate the colours of Autumn before they have all gone. You may have seen my last inktober series where I created illustrations with a combination of colouring pencils and pens; this process seemed like the only way to truly represent the oranges and reds of Autumn.

It has been a while since I last used colouring pencils and I forgot just how much I LOVE using them. The shading takes time, gently applying layer after layer to build up the gradation of colour, but eventually you get a beautiful transition from dark to light. The warming colours of Autumn always make me want to light up some candles and sit in front of a fire, is that just me? 

Enjoy the last moments of Autumn with this glowing desktop background and grab some apple cinnamon candles in preparation for the winter months! All you need to do is click on the link and save the wallpaper that fits your screen:

Happy First of October! I can't quite believe we are here, the year has gone so so fast. In the last few months I have been working on some sketches for colouring in and so I thought I would create a desktop download that you can print off and colour in if you choose.

My usual style of illustration is very detailed and full so it was a real challenge to adapt my work to allow spaces for colouring. Just like any new challenge I really struggled at the beginning to get my head around the concept and I wasn't enjoying it at all, but with some time I soon got the hang of it - hurray! It was important to me that I still kept the design fresh and interesting, that's what usually motivates me in my normal illustrations.

In the end I was so pleased I did try this new style of illustration, it has actually pushed me to think more about spaces and lines in another way. I still love it when the page is just FULL of details but now I can appreciate the difficulty and patience required in other styles of illustration. 

So jump on the colouring train, print and download this desktop to complete the journey, I would love to see your creations so please email them into me. All you need to do is click on the link and save the wallpaper that fits your screen or print out whichever your choose:

Desktop Wallpaper Download - September 2017

As many of you may know, I just got married! It has been an absolutely crazy month full of ups and downs so to help me stay sane throughout all the madness (Indians weddings are non-stop celebrations!) I created a mandala for this month's desktop download. 

For those of you who already create mandalas you will know there is a great sense of calm and peace you will find in the process. I used this as an opportunity for me to focus on new lines and new details whenever I could get a little break from all the wedding planning and preparation. 

There is something about September that feels like a new beginning, maybe it's just programmed in us from our days at school or maybe that's just me?! I always see a mandala as exactly that, as a new beginning, an opportunity to create something new and wonderful - because however you create a mandala I find it always ends up looking beautiful. 

You can have your own little slice of beauty on your desktop for the whole of this month, all you need to do is click on the link and save the wallpaper that fits your screen:

Desktop Wallpaper Download - August 2017

Happy first day of August! This month's download is inspired by sacred geometry, a concept where sacred meaning is placed upon geometric shapes and formations. It can be found all over the world, often in religious places of worship where the design and even the structure are often based on sacred geometry. 

This type of geometry involves a variety of shapes drawn in a very specific order to create intricate patterns. Interestingly you find these geometric patterns in nature all the time, some examples include our own DNA, pine cones, snowflakes, flower petals and the centre of a sunflower. 

The key to sacred geometry is the intersection of lines and so I took this idea and created this illustration. Hopefully this month's desktop download will make you appreciate the miracle of nature AND maths! Start your sacred maths adventure right here...

Happy July! Wow where is the time going, we are officially into the second half of the year. Is it just me or does the second half of the year just fly by and before you know it it's Christmas... maybe that's just me. Anyway this month we have something a little different in terms of the layout, let me know what you think of it. 

This one is a take on my "mother-boarding" technique and is sort of like the inner workings of a computer/brain/time machine. So that you guys can see how these desktops take shape I took some progress photos of this one and will do a little blog post to show you how to recreate this yourself. 

I am hoping just like all my other desktop downloads this one will play around in your imagination. And I also hope it will be a happy reminder that you can change/break the rules any time you so please!

Happy May Day! Hope those of you in the UK enjoyed your bank holiday and those of you everywhere else enjoyed your first Monday of the month. Many of you will know I love working on weird and wonderful designs filled with shapes, patterns, shading, dots, lines and everything else I can conjure up in my imagination. And soooo I thought it was about time to create a desktop that was completely abstract. 

I just love these abstract drawings because every person interprets them differently. For some reason to me it feels like the logo for a villain from a superhero movie! Or the emblem of some sort of secret underground society formed on the Dark Net. What does it make you think of? 

Hopefully with this wallpaper you can explore your imagination and see what your mind conjures up. And each time you see it, look a little longer to absorb the details. Perhaps even print it off and extend it. All you need to do is click on the link and save the wallpaper that fits your screen:

It's that time again, it comes around so fast! So it seems like literally everyone around me is either on holiday or is about to go and I would LOVE to be in some little European city right now. So instead I channeled my love of travelling into this China-blue Mediterranean tiles inspired desktop wallpaper. 

Maybe you are also dreaming of white villas, blue seas and tropical trees so now you can feel a slice of holiday everyday of April. I have always had a fascination with those beautiful Mediterranean tiles that have such intricate patterns in blue and orangey tones, is it just me who loves them? 

So let yourself be transported to an exotic far away land where the sun is shining, you have a cool drink in your hand and all your worries just float away. Just click on the link and save the wallpaper that fits your screen:

Well I don't know how it is where you are but over here in London its been rainy, we even had a storm called Doris wreak havoc! So I decided to turn the cloudy rainy weather into something more positive and give you a cloud like you have probably never seen before. Just imagine if all the clouds looked like this! 

As it is officially the first day of Spring I am hoping we see a bit of sunshine and a few flowers pop up, what is the weather like where you are? Us Brits seem to be completely and utterly obsessed by weather, maybe because you never quite know what you will get over here! 

I hope this strange looking cloud will show you that even the things that bring rain can also be a source of inspiration. This month try and turn a bad situation into something more positive, send me a message if you want to share your story with me.

February is here and it's time for another desktop download! So this month's theme is COSMIC - thought I would ease you in with the January mandalas but now it is time to get quirky. Let your imagination wonder, your curiosity creep out and your creativity flow. 

Try something I heard of recently called "Star Therapy" (maybe it was sky but I prefer star) Look up at at starry nights sky and just let all your worries float away. This illustration will be a reminder to you to take a moment and pause, reflect and realise it's all going to be okay. 

Or if you prefer it's just a strange looking cosmic spaceship that might spark a little creativity when you see it. Whatever it is you see I hope it will brighten your day and make you feel that there are infinite possibilities out there.
