Hello, again. It’s been a while.

Bobby Solomon

I’ve had a lot of trouble starting this post, I’ve been attempting to write it for a month or two now. After daily posts of ideas, creativity, and randomness, how do I explain my drought of passion and ideas? Well, a lot of it has to do with my day job. For those who didn’t know I’m a full-time creative director at Disney who nowadays feels most like they’re moonlighting as a blogger. I currently work with a brilliant team of 21 creatives – UX, UI, Vis Dev, and more. Together we’re making some pretty phenomenal web and app experiences as well as beautiful pieces of art that we share with millions of Disney fans across pretty much every social platform out there. Saying it’s an exciting time would be an understatement.

While my career continues to excite me the blog unfortunately suffers for it. Thankfully, taking a break over the last few months has given me some time to rest, to refocus, to regain my perspective. After over 8 years now I can’t simply let this site whither and die, it would be a travesty. So I’ve decided to get back at this, sharing the ideas that shape the way I see the world. It probably won’t be design-centric all the time but the world is large and full of wonders (sorry for butchering your quote Lord Dunsany). Hell, I’ve even decided to throw a new style onto the site. It’s not quite refined yet but it looks sharp on mobile and it’s something fresh to make the return even sweeter. Thanks again for all the support over the years, here’s hoping you’re still enjoying the ride.

    Keep the DWP breathing and you can disappear whenever you like. <3

    Keep it up! This site has been a staple for me for over 6 years now; it’s been great watching all the transformations and has never let me down as a source for inspiration.

    Great to see you back! Was wondering what had happened to the Desktop Wallpaper Project – I guess this explains it.

    Every couple months I take a deep sigh as I have emptied out the intruige of the days reddits and hypebeasts and tumbles and then I remember the Fox. It’s always nice to be able to come here.
