My, how far we have come

December desktop demo

I hope desktop number 12 finds you well, it’s the culmination of a whole year in my creative practice and a milestone of commitment for me. At the beginning of the year I had the idea to do monthly desktops on a whim but I’m really proud of myself for sticking with it because I have learnt so much and used the exercise as a way to explore my own visual language.

People have asked me if I’ll continue doing these desktops in 2010, and you know what? I probably will. I’ve thought about doing other regular and ongoing projects, but none of the ideas I’ve come up with have really been as practical and useful as monthly desktops! Thank you so much if you’ve used my desktops throughout the year, I always feel an odd mixture of pride and embarrassment when I see them on people’s computers and phones.

I have done a special limited release desktop for Blanket subscribers only this month. If you subscribe, I hope you enjoy it, however if you don’t subscribe go and grab December’s issue because there’s an interview with me in it!

  1. Thank you for a wonderful December wallpaper! It's beautiful! Don't tell anyone, but it's my desktop from today – a day early but I couldn't resist!

  2. Ooo this one is so pretty with the blue!
    I've loved downloading your desktops every month, I always change to the new one when you put it up. Even if it's a few days early. Thanks for doing them :]
