Desktop Calendar {February 2013}

Brrrr! It is -9°F right now and I am currently wrapped in a blanket trying to stay warm as I work at my computer. If you ask me, this is not the best way to bring in the new month. But at least the sun is shining!

Despite the cold temps here in Wisconsin, I have a new desktop calendar to warm you up:

This one was fun! Inspired by the month of love, I decided to tell a little story with this illustration. Have you ever wondered how the Love Potion is produced? By love bugs, of course! All of their love is collected in a big barrel, is siphoned into little jars and packaged into cute little boxes for distribution. What a process!

Have you checked out the new Vine app yet? It is a Twitter-based application where you can create 6-second videos and share via social media. It's pretty fun, I have to say. I actually created a little process video as I inked the February illustration - if you're interested, you can find me under emilybluestar.

Per the usual, you can click on the above image and save it to your computer, or you can also find it herePlease note that this work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 Unported License.

Hope you have a lovely month!


  1. Those love bugs are adorable! I'm glad you explained this process to all those of us who were wondering! :>)

    1. Thanks! It IS a pretty elusive process, so I was really excited when they gave me the O-K to share with y'all!
