Shaenon: Prep sketches for the January SH wallpaper. This design was based on Mucha's "Four Seasons" illustrations, but Mucha did multiple versions of the "Four Seasons" in his career, so I had different poses and costumes to choose from. When I got around to coloring it, I put a lot of effort into the shading on the drapery, which I don't usually bother to do. The whole piece was a lot of fun to draw.

And thanks to everyone who's donated to get the wallpaper! It will remain up through January, or until I get around to drawing a February design.

Channing: I love it when wallpapers come up in the rotation because for the most part -- really, for the all part -- I'm not involved in their production, which means I get to be just as surprised and delighted as any random member of the audience seeing them for the first time.

Shaenon has ideas
For a wallpaper design
That's lovely, lovely and brings a smile ...
She'll get a pen and paper out
And make a sketch or nine,
And try to imitate Mucha's style ..

We just give Shaenon dough,
And we know, wherever we go,
Then this background
Our laptops will show ...

Cyber, psych, physics, machines ...
We can see them on our screens!
Give her three cheers!
We're Shaenon's fans!

Nice stuff there, I was really impressed by the Muse artworks resulting from these sketches!
