Julianna Brion and Rand Renfrow

What better way to symbolize the arrival of a new year than by swapping out that old desktop wallpaper with something new and vibrant? For the month of January, Alyssa over at Ten Paces and Draw has brought together two illustrators who’ve recently become personal favorites of mine, Julianna Brion and Rand Renfrow (can we briefly note that Rand Renfrow is the coolest name ever?).

We featured Julianna on the site rather recently and everyone went crazy for her work, so it’s great to have her on the site like this. I came across Rand’s work through my buddy Will Bryant. Rand makes these super hippy/90’s throwback illustrations which are totally fun, I especially like the characters he draws. Together they created a wallpaper that’s an idealized version of what January feels like. It’s a gorgeous scene that was first sketched out roughly by Rand, and then finished by Julianna. I think the two of them did a fantastic job. The colors are nice and bright and there’s plenty of room for your desktop icons.

A huge thanks to Alyssa for yet again teaming up a super rad pair of illustrators and to Julianna and Rand for killing it. I can’t wait for February already!
