The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Deke Smith

Deke Smith

This week’s artist is the wonderfully talented, Deke Smith, an illustrator who lives and works in Vermont. I wasn’t quite sure about letting Deke do a wallpaper, but then I saw his drawing of 2Pac riding a unicorn… I mean, how could I say not this guy?! Seriously, Deke has a really great style, and always comes up with really fun characters.

For his wallpaper he went with a kind of fusion of styles, a collage of random people with a bunch of his drawings mixed in there. My favorite guy is the pyramid with the eyeball, mostly because I have something similar tattooed on my arm (I am not a Mason, thank you very much).

    I had a feeling he worked with JDK in Burlington.

    JDK runs this awesome screen printing collective called Iskra Print:

    They create novelty posters for musicians that come through our only national venue here in Vermont, Higher Ground. He’s made two designs for them. ->

    I love the combo of photo montage and drawing.
