March 2013 Desktop Calendar

I'm glad that March is just around the corner, it is tomorrow in fact! I don't know about you, but I am ready for Spring. I have had just about enough of the soggy sidewalks, stinky wet boots, snow shovelling and now I am dreaming about warmer weather, sprouting plants, launches :)
Yep, the launch date for Skink on the Brink is getting closer- May 13th! I am super hyped!
This month's desktop calendar definitely has a more "Springy" feel. There is lush greenery everywhere and a new baby-a mommy with her new baby elephant. I created  this illo for the author of Skink on the Brink, Lisa Dalrymple. Her sister is having her first child, a girl! Yay, congratulations! So after some consultations between Lisa and myself, we decided on an  Asian elephant theme with some pink flowers to compliment her nursery.
I think elephants might be my new favorite animals to sculpt in plasticine, or at least a close second to skinks of course ;)
Creating all of those yummy wrinkles and leathery skin was really fun.
To download your copy just click on the screen resolution link you require (links are underneath the illo) then right click and save to desktop. Easy Peasy.
Have a great March everyone.

February 2013 Desktop Calendar

It's that time of month again- free desktop calendar time! I had such a great time creating the previous process post that I thought it would only be fitting to create this month's desktop calendar using the same illustration. It might be a bit early for such a Spring-y illo, but I couldn't resist. Besides, with all of this crazy weather lately, it's hard to know what season we are in. I think my bulbs were trying to poke through the dirt, only to be flash frozen the following day...geesh. If you'd like to read more about how I created this illustration( for my first picture book, Skink on the Brink(Fitzhenry& Whiteside), written by Lisa Dalrymple, due out this May!) please check out the process post.
