#CanopyAdvent15 // Day 11


today’s wallpaper involves new digital programs (that i am a complete ‘noob’ at) and typical pineapple obsessions.

ready for day 11?? here we go!

i got Adobe illustrator just yesterday (the trial version, i mean.) and i’ve been playing around with it quite a bit! admittedly this wallpaper was made before i checked out any tutorials on AI, so it’s probably not an accurate show of what the program can do AT ALL.

still! this piece was loosely inspired by this golden pineapple that i bought from Typo yesterday. it’s meant to be a Christmas ornament, if i’m not wrong, but you know what?? it’s gonna sit around on my table 🙂

me, feelin’ super pineapple-inspired as you becomes after they stare at a pineapple for a few minutes, tried to do a (trying-to-be-realistic-turned-abstract-style) illustration. then, i created a sort of pattern / background and layered it below. don’t say i didn’t warn you, this was very, very experimental. (but as my first ever work in AI, it’ll probably have some sentimental value.)

{download it right here!}


if you just joined, you might be wondering what #CanopyAdvent15 is… so here’s a quick rundown!

#CanopyAdvent15 is my blog’s version of an advent calendar, with little surprises to brighten up your days until Christmas, and this year those surprises are wallpapers.

H O W  I T  W O R K S // 

everyday i’ll be posting the wallpapers as individual posts, along with a short write-up on what inspired them and the artist who created them (if it’s not me).

T H E  O F F I C I A L  P A G E // 

you can access the official #CanopyAdvent15 page via the link in this post or by holding your mouse over the Wallpapers link to open a dropdown menu in my blog’s header. i’ll be curating the links to each daily wallpaper post on that page, as well as links to posts with details about this project.

do note that because of timezones the wallpapers may not come out on the exact day where you are, and they may not go live at the same time every day. i’m working on it!
