february d*s desktop calendar: nate duval

today i’m thrilled to to welcome nate duval to the growing family of artists who’ve been kind enough to donate their time and artwork to the d*s desktop wallpaper project. i’m a huge fan of nate’s work so i was thrilled when he agreed to create a design for february 2010. in addition to the digital downloads for this month (with and without calendar) nate will be adapting his design to a simpler 18″ x 24″ hand-printed screenprint as well, to coincide with today’s launch. so click here for more information on nate’s work and to check out the print! (thanks, nate!)

*UPDATE: the date snafu has been fixed! the correct calendar versions are uploaded and good to go!

    very cute!

  15. Lisa says:

    This desktop wallpaper is so beautiful! I would love a pillow of this. One tiny problem–the calendar gets buried at the bottom of the page…I lose the last 8 days of Feb. Anyone else experiencing this? Probably Windows 7’s fault…
