The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Dan Matutina

Dan Matutina

Today I’m happy to announce a desktop wallpaper by a guy with one of the coolest names ever, Dan Matutina. Dan does work under the name Twistedfork creating lovely little illustrations with lots of life and color. He also seems to have a kind of fetish for pirates in ninjas, but y’know, who can blame the guy. He also has this rad little project called Status and Shapes where he interprets people’s Twitter messages into a rad looking image. He only did a few but I hope he does more cuz’ they’re pretty rad looking.

As for his wallpaper, I’ll let Dan describe it:

“Was thinking of a cinematic scene where a Ninja is trying to invade a pirate ship and assassinate the Pirate Captain. But the First Mate who was sleeping at the Crow’s Nest saw the Ninja. They start fighting. :) Ofcourse, Ninja and Pirates are geeky. Just tried to make it more badass.”

Absolutely spot-on and totally fun. Don’t forget that there’s an iPad wallpaper size as well, and for those who’ve asked, I’m thinking about creating a larger size for larger monitors. The thing is you vocal few make up less thatn 2% of people who visit the site, so says the Google-y Analytics, so be please be patient.
