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…

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!

Due to human interference, the number of these magnificent creatures is in rapid decline.

Whether it be the disgraceful demand for shark fins or getting caught in the nets of commercial fishing boats, despite their fearsome image, sharks are extremely vulnerable.

Sharks (if left alone) live for a long time and mature late, which means if they are killed early, never get chance to reproduce. This will ultimately result in the extinction of these wonderful creatures.

For more information about sharks and what you can do to help protect them, visit the shark section on the WWF website.

The magnificent Atlantic Blue Fin Tuna is one of the main victims of our over fished oceans and due to its popularity, particularly among sushi eaters, it’s numbers have become critically low 🙁

This Giant Anteater is one of the collages I enjoyed working on the most from my new book (due out this month) – they are such beautiful creatures and it was a challenge that I relished trying to re-create their distinctive markings and long bushy tails in cut paper collage.

Here’s a work in progress photo from when I was creating the collage…

Can’t quite believe it’s 2013 already – Happy New Year everyone, wishing you all much success and happiness in 2013.

It’s going to be an exciting year with my first children’s book released in February (featuring the howler monkey from this month’s desktop), our second child due in May, big plans for Jonathan Woodward Studio and another special project that has been brewing for a long time (watch out for more news on that soon).

Thanks again to everyone that emailed, commented, Facebook liked or tweeted kind words throughout 2012, they were all very much appreciated.

Happy New Year!

Then There Were None – December 2012 Desktop Wallpaper

Had to go with something a little wintery and seasonal for the December desktop, so here’s a little Arctic Hare from the new book (due out in February).

We have big plans for ‘Then There Were None’ in 2013 and have finally settled on what Lea (my wife) and I will be doing with it. It will involve endangered animals (obviously), something to help kids learn more about the not so obvious creatures under threat and hopefully help raise a bit of money along the way for the cause too.

So, keep an eye out on the site for more info or to get details hot off the press, please sign up to my newsletter.

I also wanted to say thank you for the kind comments and feedback about my work this past year and to wish everyone a very happy holidays.

This month’s desktop marks the 2 year anniversary of my ‘Then There Were None’ desktops. What better way to celebrate than with the king of the dinosaurs (even if they do have rubbish arms)!
