The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Adrian Fleet

Adrian Fleet

Good morning everybody. Sorry I missed out last week, but I have two fun surprises for this morning. The first is the awesome desktop you see above by Mr. Adrian Fleet, a UK illustrator who wrote to tell me that we were connected in three rather odd ways. He also sent me a link to his work which features all sorts of weird ass monster-y people, all of them colored in with this great color palette he uses.

The wallpaper above is Adrian’s “entirely depressing and pessimistic view of the Earth”, though he says, “I’ve managed to make it look laughable. (I never could take myself seriously).” I couldn’t agree more. I’m so in love with all he craggly little details he’s put into this, there’s seriously so much going on here, I’m sure people will definitely do a double take when they pass by your screen.

    wow…
    i took me a few minutes to absorb it all but a brilliant wallpaper…
    grim but a good reflection of what we humans are doing to the plant.

    reminds me of a song from Story Of The Year “The Antidote”

    “Now the damage has been done
    And this machine has begun on a path of destruction
    We need the medicine
    To reverse what’s been done
    Before this disease has destroyed everything we know
    Everything we know!

    All we need is a reason (all we need is a reason)
    All we need is right here inside us all

    With our weapons drawn and all our resources gone
    We’re facing extinction
    The only antidote consists of blood, sweat, and hope
    And a blueprint to save us from all that we’ve become
    All that we’ve become!

    All we need is a reason (all we need is a reason)
    All we need is right here inside us all
    All we need is a reason (all we need is a reason)
    All we need is right here inside us
    Here inside us all!

    Yeah!
    Oh

    Now the gears they will fail to turn
    As the lights go out
    And the sun will be all that burns on our way down
    (On our way down)
    But right now we have to understand the problem
    And overcome!

    So arm yourself
    You’ll mind your gun
    It’s time to learn
    Accept what’s done, and yeah
    Repair this destruction!”

    Had to search for this latest update, did a link to the DWP get taken off the front page or am I just blind?

    Sweet wallpaper by the way
