I’m stoked for this weeks wallpaper, as it’s one of the boldest images I’ve featured in this project so far. It’s the work of Matt Taylor, a Brighton, England based illustrator who I’ve posted about in the past and recruited to create something. He’s got this timeless style to his work, uses a lot of bold colors and high contrast to really make his images stand out. He also says that he was influenced by Jack Kirby, which I see a bit of in his work, but in more of a contemporary way.
As for his image, it’s amazing. I love that he chose a super warm color palette and punched out the man’s skin with pure black. The tiny details in his garb in yellow and darker red are a beautiful touch, as well. If wherever you live is cold or gloomy right now, be sure to set this as your wallpaper and absorb some of the warmth.
