January::Desktop download

In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy!


Here's my contribution to my group blog, www.welovetoillustrate.com for January. Swing on over to visit and download all of the ladies' wonderful desktop designs for January! This is somewhat of a verrrrry loose homage to Sean Connery and Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Loved that film!

  5. This one is too cute. I love how you did a homage to Indiana Jones( and put your own twist on it. We play that one a ton in our right now(with my 9 yr old- the oldest being a HUGE Indiana Jones fan). That scene is so funny. Your details are amazing as always, the old-fashioned bike and side car, goggles and hat, leather jacket.....great one Shirley!

  20. Haha, well now that mention it, I loved that movie too. Maybe the next one could be animated with your characters in instead... not that there's anything wrong with ninety year old sex symbols pretending they are 23 ...

    You're work is so much fun Shirley, you certainly have chosen the right life I think
