Thomas Allen

Good Wednesday everyone, I hope you’re all having a good one. I’m really excited about today’s wallpaper, in fact, I only got it yesterday and I’m already posting it, that’s how excited I am. This week’s artist is the insanely talented and creative Thomas Allen. You may not know him by name, but if I told you he was that guy that makes really neat images out of cut-out book covers, then would you know him? I’ve been in love with his work for a while now, I’m enamored with the fact that he makes such great art with such simple materials.

His desktop is called ‘Infectious’, and features a man with his hand wrapped and slightly bloodied, looking quite concerned about the southern belle standing over his shoulder. It’s a great image that makes an equally great desktop wallpaper. Also, if you’re on a Mac, you may want to throw it into Preview, flip it horizontally and save it, that way your icons aren’t over there image.

    Yes, feel free to flip it. I actually tried flipping it before the upload but, being the purist that I am, I felt guilty and flipped it back!!! Thanks for inviting me Bobby and for the kind words. It was big fun.

    Longtime reader, first time commenter. I think this may be my favorite wallpaper ever, and not just among the great ones you post every week. I’m not a huge blog reader, but I hit this one up regularly and look forward to it. Much love from Seattle.
