The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Somefield


For a while now I’ve had kind of a crush on the work of Somefield, also known as Barnaby Ward, who I posted about a couple years back. I’ve been keeping an eye on him and seen his work explode all over the internet. I’m absolutely in love with his style, which is very anime inspired, but I feel like he puts his own unique twist on it. I don’t think anyone will argue that it’s all downright beautiful.

For his wallpaper he created an image that to me looks like something out of Alice in Wonderland. It’s a bizarre little vignette that he decided to enhance by giving it a watercolor look and feel. I’m also smitten with the colors of it, the blues, violets and magentas absolutely pop. But it’s also a rather simple desktop at the same time, so it shouldn’t get i the way of your icons either. This is hands down one of my favorites of 2010 so far. Thanks Barnaby!
