March's projects + April free Desktop wallpaper

Hello everyone! I hope you started this month of April with lots of sun!

I decided to introduce something new here, something I haven't done before, even though I would have liked to do this before, but my laziness for writing always found better things to do. This month, I would like to go back and reflect on last month, the projects I worked on. Otherwise I feel like time is passing by so fast that it will be the end of the year again with the impression of not accomplishing anything. 

So, March was quite a busy month for me, with a lot of beautiful projects I worked on. 
I started the month working on a beautiful commission for someone who purchased three of my whale illustrations (you can find them here), and wanted a fourth one all about sea shells and starfish. 

At the same time, I was working on a set of 6 illustrations of birds for a magazine. A beautiful project I was very happy to work on!

I was also still working on a project I started at the beginning of the year. It is a bit of a secret project for now, but in May I will be able to show everything about it :)

If you would like a special illustration, please contact me at nathalie@studiokalumi.com, I am always happy to work on special projects!

Just want to add a note before leaving you with the downloads of the month.. Sometimes I receive emails asking me if people can use my wallpapers, illustrations they find on my Etsy shop, etc. for printing on postcards, for a book... For a BOOK... and offering to just credit me by putting my name... So just to be clear, taking illustrations of people from the internet without retributing them is not cool, so please respect the work of the artist that is making this and trying to make a living out of it. Thank you!

Now it is time for the desktop download of the month! I hope you like it!

March free Desktop wallpaper

March is already here, and here comes with it spring, new growth, and a new desktop wallpaper for you! I hope you will like it!

February free desktop wallpaper

Good news! Desktop wallpapers are back (and hopefully here to stay). 

It's been a long time I haven't stopped by here to write something, but I will now try to incorporate it into my weekly list of things to do. One of the goals I have for this year is to create some free things for you, and this desktop wallpaper is one of them!

So for this month's free desktop wallpaper I wanted to use a pattern (how would I not), but I wanted a more minimalistic feel about it. And after playing a bit with the february pattern from my calendar I imagined them as trees and decided adding a small shadow (in Photoshop) and a fox - yes I am a bit obsessed with foxes lately. I hope you like this month's free desktop wallpaper! You can download it for your computer and for your phone below.
 

Illustrations for Birchbox + Lovely Streets - Beauty Box June 2016

Today, I would like to present a project I have been working on some weeks ago, and I was so eager to share it with you. I created all the illustrations for the famous monthly beauty box of Birchbox Spain, about summer, about those longer days, about holidays, about enjoying the hot days and vanilla ice creams.

And the best is that you can use this box to put your souvenirs, photos and such after you used all the products. Check it here if you want more details of what is in the box!
