Spring is definitely starting to settle in here in Los Angeles so having a wallpaper to match the vibe is always nice. This week’s wallpaper is by Toronto based designer and illustrator Siobhán Gallagher. She wrote me a few months ago, interested in doing a wallpaper, and after having looked through her work I was hooked. I was especially smitten with this poster she did for the University of the Art’s Senior Illustration Thesis Show, portraying a flock of multi-colored birds.

So I asked Siobhán if she’d be interested in creating another scene filled with critters, scarab beetles to be exact, and she was totally down with the idea. I absolutely love how this piece turned out. She not only created a slew of differently shaped beetles but the variation in colors and textures are fantastic. I think even people who aren’t fans of bugs would see the beauty in this wallpaper.

Be sure to check back every Wednesday for a new wallpaper!
