Astoundingly it’s already November. I’m not sure that October even happened. Nonetheless time marches on and we have a new wallpaper from our friends at Ten Paces and Draw. For this month’s wallpaper Ten Paces and Draw curator Alyssa Nassner was able to snag Olivia Mew, a Canadian illustrator and textile designer who’s got some serious skills. She decided to make a wallpaper that reflects Remembrance Day, a memorial day that’s observed by many countries around the world.
“November 11th is Remembrance Day in Canada & the UK, our version of memorial day. The poppy is the symbol of it, so come November lots of people wear poppy pins on their coats as a sign of respect.”
What I love about our monthly wallpapers with Ten Paces and Draw is that they draw from a really wide variety of topics. I think Olivia has created a really wonderful looking wallpaper that can also be really meaningful to a lot of people. I like the contrast between life and death as well, the skull with the poppies and subtle moth is stunning. Not to forget that the color palette is extraordinary. A big thanks to Olivia for a job well done and thanks to Alyssa from Ten Paces for picking yet another wonderful artist. Check back next month for December’s wallpaper!
