january desktop calendar

I thought it would be fun to do monthly desktop calendars this year! This first one is a picture I took at my local park in 2010 that I fooled around with in photoshop (it may look familiar if you've been following me for a while, since this backdrop used to be in my blog header a long time ago) with an overlay of hand-illustrated snow and a teeny little calendar in the corner. It looks a lot better when you see it full size and can make out all the tiny snow flakes. If you'd like to download it, here are some desktop sizes:

1280 x 1024 // 1600 x 1200 // 1680 x 1050 // 1920 x 1080 // 1920 x 1200

I really love the idea of layering photographs with illustration.. I think I want to try fooling around with this a little more! :) Oh, ps. it's also available (sans-calendar) in my society6 shop as prints, iphone cases, etc. etc.
