Design Something Every Day (#daily365)– Jan 22

Today’s  DSED/#daily365

For some reason, I got it in my head that I wanted to try my hand at a desktop calendar pic. I’ve never done one before, but with over 330 days to go in the year, I was bound to take one on at some point. Besides, I didn’t come out half bad (for a first attempt– if I do say so myself)– I may just try and knock one out every month.

Now, why February? Other than it’s the next month coming up, it’s one that– for a number of reasons I’ve grown to like as I’ve gotten older.

If, for whatever reason, anyone’s interested, drop me a line and I’ll email you a higher res version. As always, your comments and observations are greatly appreciated.

I’d be lying if I said I intended for the heart. To be honest, I was intentionally staying away from all the trappings associated with Feb (well, working a groundhog in might have been interesting), a well as the color palette that usually follows the month. The brush strokes were used as an arc to frame the copy a bit. Looking at a bird’s eye view, though, I can totally see how the might look like a heart.

Thanks for the kind words– and, BTW, it’s tough coming up with something every day. How are you managing?
