With the arrival of the new OS on my audio PC I thought I might tart up the desktop with some new eye-candy. Don’t get me wrong I like the Ubuntu look, it is so distinctive but it’s really brown. So a change is as good as a holiday as they say (my normal desktop is of a holiday)
So here is the first of probable series…
I have mentioned
555design before in “Mondays”. If you like a grungy lived in “old jeans” kind of look, this is the place for you. The open door made it to the short list.
Next up we have Deviant Art. I sometimes think you really don’t need to look any further than here. There are some bits that wouldn’t be classed as “workplace friendly in a fit, lets face it there is some stuff that isn’t even friendly BUT this place will kill a day or two and you wont even have scratched the surface. Huge and worth a look or three. Jools mentioned it at http://www.joolsweb.com/pontificates/2005/10/02/bad-habits-and-manga/ last October as well. Everybody really should waste at least a day here.
Mandolux has some truly beautiful pieces squirrelled away in the archives. I found a dozen contenders here in less than 10 minutes.
And the final contender today is Artlebedev. The Abbey Road Barcode broke me up. Lots of funny, quirky pretties here. The Mao is a beaut as well.
Some more soon.
By the way I still have my original picture on the desktop… I couldn’t decide.
