The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Merijn Hos

Merijn Hos

One of my favorite things about The Desktop Wallpaper Project is that I get to meet people from all over the world. Before I started this blog my world was rather small, consisting of mostly places in California, a few random cities across the US, and everything I’ve read in magazines. But now I’ve got friends like Mr. Merijn Hos, an awesome illustrator and all around crafty guy from Utrecht, Netherlands. Currently he’s working on some ultra-secret projects that he can’t talk about, and recently Merijn had a book come out called Black and White Drawings by Bfree, which features his favorite drawings from the last 5 years.

As for his wallpaper, I love how random and cute it all is. All of the drawings were selected from an installation he did earlier this year. But then he wrote that, “I did the drawings in a time limit of 3 minutes each pretending I was a stuffed doll on a weird substance that could be seen in the installation.” To check out what he’s talking about you can click here, it’s pretty crazy.
