After years of saying “I could totally do that”, I finally designed a desktop wallpaper for Smashing Magazine.
I thought asparagus would be appropriate for May as the locally grown stuff starts to appear in grocery stores around this time.
I sketched the asparagus with pencil and paper first…
…and then redrew in Illustrator. I added texture and colour with Photoshop and of course could not resist putting faces on them.
For the Smashing Mag wallpaper, I output the artwork at different sizes, including mobile. You can download it with or without the May 2016 calendar.
For RedBubble and Society6, however, I revised it slightly, repainting it at a higher resolution and adding the speech bubble.
So now you can buy it on various products as well as download the wallpaper. Enjoy!
