Summer Vegetables Free Pattern

I'm in the middle of moving all of my possessions but I'm not letting that stop my constant art school of life approach to learning always.

I've been having a lot of fun making patterns recently, using old sketches, work doodles, and even things I've found on random pieces of paper. This one of summer vegetables I made from an unfinished sketch at least three years old. I'm loving my new color palate here.

Free Watermelon Desktop Background for July

New York City is experiencing a heat wave this week that I've taken off from work to putz around both at home in Massachusetts and in the emptied out city. It's meant a lot of moving from subway car to subway car until I find the actually cold one, as well as a deep appreciation rain today.

For July forth, I didn't do much in the way of celebratory, besides margaritas for dinner and watching the distant Jersey City fireworks from the 79th street pier. But I'm fully in support of doing nothing for holidays. 

I don't think I've taken enough time to appreciate a staycation in New York, especially in the summer. Right now I'm nursing a bad burn from a day trip yesterday to Sandy Hook beach, watching the World Cup, and making art in my air conditioned apartment. Later I think I'll venture out, maybe buy some watermelon, and get my nails done. I love a lazy, summer life in New York City (even if for just a few days.)

Free Cats Desktop Wallpaper for June

Happy June!

I want to illustrate a full children's book dummy about a New York City bodega cat this summer. So here's a wallpaper I made with my sketchbook studies I've done for the project. Repeat patterns are a great way to keep me occupied and slowly chipping away at the goal while binge watching an  TV show.

Free Lemon Desktop Wallpaper for May

Happy Almost Summer! I'm wearing a great vintage dress today that I thought I'd have to wait until the actual summer to wear because it's going to be in the 80s.  I also made a thrifted (Poshmark, you devil you!) purchase of bright yellow saltwater sandals that kind of match this months free wallpaper. Now I'm thinking I need them in gold, too?

In honor of that summer feeling, download my lemons wallpaper repeat pattern for your desktop.

I'd gladly take a trip to Cinque Terre Italy right now, to eat a slice of lemon olive oil cake.
