August desktop, horah!

Hand drawn desktop design with green toned starburst, clouds, paisley and bunting with a banner saying "AUGUST".

Down this part of the globe it’s been the 1st of August for a whole day and I hope you won’t hold my tardiness against me. Maybe you’re only just starting the month in your part of the world? Then I hope I’m posting this in time!

I quite like august as a word in its own right, if you’ve never heard it used before here’s a definition:


   /ɔˈgʌst/ [aw-guhst]
1. inspiring reverence or admiration; of supreme dignity or grandeur; majestic: an august performance of a religious drama.
2. venerable; eminent: an august personage.

Wallpaper for other phones (240×320)

I spend around 12-24 hours on each desktop, inking and drawing each element before scanning everything and pulling it all together in Photoshop for each desktop resolution. If you’d like to throw in a couple of bucks to contribute to the time spent drawing each desktop as well as my general hosting costs for definatalie.com and my flickr account, your donation will be much appreciated. <3

  1. Love it! I'm only sad that I found your website too late to enjoy July's desktop! :)

  2. I love it!!! August is my second favorite month of the year after December, haha…

  3. 'Gorgeous! And summery even though you're in the dead of winter – aren't you?

  4. I'm sure someone's suggested it to me before but I realised it was too hard to upload my desktops to their site in time because I usually do mine at the very last minute!!

  5. just curious, was it the ekka that gave you the circus idea or just a love of stripes and a wish for summery fluffy clouds in august?

  6. Actually the bunting was inspired by so many decor blogs out there, and I decided to give it a carnival sort of vibe because of the lettering I ended up doodling!!

  7. This is fantastic! I wish I could afford to donate :) Will definitely be blogging about your amazing desktops.
