The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Always With Honor

Always With Honor

Whenever I open up a new issue of Monocle, one of the first things that catches my eye are the illustrations. 95% of the time those illustrations are done by Always With Honor, or as some know them Tyler Lang and Elsa Chaves. They have this highly stylized, minimal colors and shapes kind of thing going that I absolutely love. The fact that they can tell such a rich story with so little always impresses me.

So when Tyler offered their services for the Desktop Wallpaper Project, how could I say no? When Tyler sent this to me it was just a random YouSendIt file with no name attached and I was freaking out trying to figure out who it was from. The wallpaper features two cute pups lounging on a rug in what seems to be some kind of study, surrounded by a skull and a globe. I love this wallpaper, it feels seasonal to me, and I hope you love it too.

    @Poopchef – Is that a Handsome Boy Modeling School reference?

    I like this one! I still haven’t changed mine since the “Do you remember the day we left Earth” one though. This is irrelevant, but who’s your favorite president? I just noticed that you and someone I know have pretty similar taste and I’m curious to see if your answer is what I’m expecting it to be

    With dogs, the scientific-elements of the skull and books and a well-travelled globe, this reminds me of Up!, the Pixar movie.

    Thank you, and Thank you AWH.
