February 2018

It’s the last Thursday in February, which means it’s time for your free March 2018 desktop wallpapers! This month’s wallpaper was entirely created in Procreate, with just the dates added in using Photoshop and my font, Miss Magnolia. The gold details you see are from my Procreate Metallic Texture Kit, available here. For the dates, ‘R’ is for Thursday, to distinguish it from a same-sized Tuesday ‘T’ at a glance. 

The download includes the March 2018 desktop wallpapers in two common resolutions: 1280x1024px and 1920x1080px, with and without dates. I’ve left the year off of the ‘no-dates’ versions, so you can use it for any March in the future, too!

As designers today, we are extra gifted with the ability to make passive income from digital products. While ‘passive’ can be a bit misleading (because there is continual work to maintain and build on your product offering), to a large extent, it allows designers to experiment + create more without the continual pressure of seeking new freelance work. So what do I mean by passive income? Creating digital products (like templates, fonts, textures, etc.) once and selling them over and over again without additional work. Create it once, sell it forever. And with digital products, there are many options with where and how to sell that makes the entire process automated once the product is made.

In this week’s video, I’ll walk through those selling options and the how making passive income off of my fonts has changed my creative future.

Can you believe Valentine’s Day is next week?! If you’d like to DIY this year, this watercolor florals Valentine’s Day card in Adobe Illustrator can be created on a lunch break 😉 In this week’s tutorial, we create a quick and simple vector heart, then surround it with watercolor florals and a radial gradient background. It’s a print ready file, so you’ll be good to go for printing at home from start to finish. If you’re new to working with digital watercolor florals, there’s a free mini kit below to get you started!
