Hey everyone! This week’s wallpaper is by one of my favorite artists out there, Mickey Duzyj. Working in Brooklyn, Mickey has this really clean and simple style but has a way of using colors that really make his work pop and come to life.
For his wallpaper he sent me this classic image of his. Snarling greyhounds ripping down a race track, vying to win the race. There’s something so tense and amazing about this piece that totally grabs me. I love the look on the dogs faces, they look so damn intense! Enjoy these and be sure to check back next week.
Good Wednesday everyone! Sorry things have been quiet for a few days, I’ve been getting ready to take a trip up to Santa Cruz and San Francisco with the boyfriend for the week. Thus, ducks had to be put in a row and things needed tidying up. But, there are lots of fun things still going on, like the awesome Cole Gerst doing this weeks desktop wallpaper. Growing up in Georgia, he studied art at the Atlanta College of Art and eventually moving out to LA. Funny enough, he lives about 15 blocks away from me!
I spotted the piece above on Cole’s site and I thought it was such a rad image, and that it would make such a great wallpaper. There are so many great little details in this wallpaper, and the color is so vibrant and warming, kind of like a summers sunset.

Well, well, well, it’s Wednesday and we’re back on to the normal Desktop Wallpaper Project cycle, one every Wednesday. You might have noticed that I updated the tags that go along with each wallpaper. I’ll be changing out the old ones soon enough, but I wanted to do something new that better reflected the current site. Today I have a wallapper from designer/illustrator Brian Wade Scott. Brian currently lives in Los Angeles and is currently attending Art Center School of Design.
Brian wrote me that his wallpaper is “all drawings of churches, geometry, and space. I’ve been doing a lot of these kinds of drawings lately so I wanted to continue through in these drawings.” I love how creepy and minimal this is. A lot of wallpapers make your eyes bleed, or they can be overly boring. But I think that Brian hit the nail on the head, sort of a middle ground. I hope you all enjoy this and I’ll post up someone else new and exciting next Wednesday.
Well we’re definitely in the throes of summer here in the northern hemisphere, so I thought another mixtape may get everyone excited and the hot weather off their minds. This is kind of the first part of a summer mixtape called I’ll Carry You On, while the second part will be released in about a month or so. This mix has been kicking around for a little bit now, it was originally inspired by a side project of mine that I felt needed some music.
It doesn’t really have a theme, but I feel like it flows together rather well. The songs are new and old, not quite as up to date as the other summer mix is, but this should still make your head bounce. I’d also like to suggest that you listen to this one with headphones on. There are lots of rich sounds in these songs, and even some things I’ve added in myself here and there. I hope you like it and be ready for another mix to drop on August 21st, which is my birthday, so it’s like a birthday present to all of you for being such awesome readers.
I also have a new project that I think I’ll be releasing on Friday that’s related to the mixtapes but an entirely new endeavor altogether. Keep your eyes peeled!
