This is definitely one of the most beautifully, phallic wallpapers I’ve ever seen. Maybe I just have the mind of a 13 year old boy, but nonetheless it’s a beautiful wallpaper and extremely well done. It was made by Ian O’Phelan, a Los Angeles based illustrator who does the most incredible patterns. The pattern section on his site is absolutely stunning and should definitely be checked out if you have any kind of interest in the area.
I’m guessing that the creatures you see are all underwater beasties, but don’t they kind of look like spores as well? It’s funny because I’m listening to a new song off of Sufjan Steven’s The BQE Soundtrack and it totally fits with this wallpaper, very ethereal and unreal feeling. Give it a download and check back next week for a new wallpaper.
Continuing my recent flirtation with chairs, I present you the Lockwood chair by Miswell. This little puppy has a steel frame with a wooden seat and a really unique silhouette. I love the bends in the back of the chair which would cradle you into the chair. I think that blue color is pretty amazing as well, I’d love to have a little patio with a set of these to lounge around in.
Wednesday morning already?! This week has flown by for me, but I get to post a sweet wallpaper, so that’s good right? This week’s featured artist is the Finnish artist Pietari Posti, one of my absolute favorites. He’s currently working in Spain, doing a lot of illustrations for magazines like The NY Times, National Geographic and Playboy. He was also recently in the Now Showing project where people recreated awesome movie posters, which I posted about here.
His wallpaper is simple and beautiful feature a pattern of foxes (sidenote: a group of foxes is called a ‘skulk’) all looking rather cute. I love the color palette for this, those blues are damn beautiful, so be sure to DL the iPhone version as well, it looks great. I’d also like to point out that there is only ONE black fox, which is true for blogs as well, haha… I hope everyone enjoys this weeks desktop!
It’s already Wednesday, the week is nearly half over, and it’s time to change your wallpaper! This week’s artist is one of my absolute favorites, his use of bright colors and bold shapes always brings a smile to my face. All the way from Barcelona everyone… Mr. Emil Kozak! Emil is originally from Denmark and has been creating since he was a little Kozak, since then working for companies like Vans, Graniph, Lego, Element Skateboards and a ton more. Most recently he did these crazy surfboards for surf god Kelly Slater which pretty much destroy everyone.
It pains me to say this, but I’ve been sitting on this design for a while, not wanting to release EVERYTHING awesome right away. It’s hard to see awesome designs like these not being put to good use! I love how big, bold, and graphic this design is, and it really works well as the iPhone background, as it’s currently in use on my own. My favorite touch is the sublminal ‘emil’ in the background, as well as the awesome color palette. Thanks again Emil!
