The December 2013 Desktop Wallpaper & Print

With this new December 2013 desktop, it marks 3 years since I started creating and releasing them – this is probably the longest illustration project I’ve ever stuck to!

These desktops have been an important part of my work – giving me a space to experiment with new ideas without a client looking over my shoulder, and also enabling me to share a taster of some of the client jobs I’ve been working on at the time.

To celebrate, I wanted to do something to take the project to the next level and also tie it in more with our endangered animals website, Then There Were None.

The Plan for 2014

So, thanks to my lovely business strategist wife, I have a new plan!

Each month I’ll be releasing:

Week 1: The desktop to download, freely.

Weeks 2 & 3: Prints of the desktop; on sale for a limited time until they become extinct forever.

Week 4: One unique, hand embellished and signed version of the print.

This Month’s Desktop

Without any further ado, here is the December desktop available for immediate download…

With the print that will be available in week 2, I’d like your help to decide which one goes on sale…

I’ll be adding these 2 prints to the Jonathan Woodward Studio Facebook page and asking you to vote there. Alternatively you can leave a comment with your vote here on the blog.

The two prints are…

The Story So Far…

I also thought it would be fun to take this opportunity to gather all my previous wallpapers together in one place and see how they’ve changed and progressed over the years…

Original Collage Auction For The Philippines Typhoon Disaster Fund

In response to the devastating typhoon that hit the Philippines and to try and help the people over there in some small way, I’ll be auctioning off my framed original Kingfisher collage to the highest bidder.

The auction is being run via my Jonathan Woodward Studio Facebook page, is already underway and will run until midnight on Friday (GMT). I will be covering the cost of postage and packing to anywhere in the world.

My wife and children are Filipino by genetics so I feel even more compelled to try and help, but more than that, I’m a human and fellow humans are currently going through something we probably couldn’t even begin to imagine right now. So, please do hop over to the Facebook page and take a look >>>

UPDATE:

I’m delighted to say that the final, winning amount bid for the collage was £100. Thank you very much to Mary Murphy, who is the new owner of my Kingfisher collage.

Such simple creatures, but just like penguins, I do find frogs full of personality.

Apologies as I’m a bit late this month due to Illustration deadlines and also preparing for the Illustration conference I run with my wife being this Saturday.

This Blackbird collage is one of 12 spot Illustrations I created for ‘The Allotment Almanac’ – the second book from Radio 2′s resident gardening expert, Terry Walton. I also Illustrated the wraparound cover too and it will be published on 10th October.

It’s a bit of a special one this month as today is the publication day of my first children’s pop-up book through Sterling Publishing.

So, I’ve decided to not have a calendar on this one and instead fill it with some of the creatures that appear in the book.

Apologies for this being a little late too, swamped with work for a exciting Illustration job I’m doing for a new series on Cbeebies. Unfortunately, I can’t share anything I’ve been working so far, but I’ve basically been working on the Illustrations for an animated segment of 20 episodes of this new show. If your kids like bugs, they will love this new show!
