My little Alice!
·13 July 2010
I am a father! On July 3, our first baby, Alice, was born. Welcome to the wonderful world, my little Alice!
I created a simple wallpaper about her: vladstudio.com/wallpaper/?newborn
New wallpaper sizes: 640x960, 960x640 (for iPhone 4), 800x960, 960x800 (for Android)

The title says it all :-) Most of my wallpapers are now available in these new sizes, targeted to new iPhone 4, and various Android devices with 480x800 screens. Check out the new sizes on every wallpaper page. Thanks!
John’s Background Switcher 4.2 features Vladstudio wallpapers integration!
·17 May 2010
The latest release of very popular program for Windows, John’s Background Switcher, includes integration of Vladstudio wallpapers. Let me quote the author:
Vladstudio wallpapers are created by digital artist Vlad Gerasimov and once you start using them for your desktop you won’t bother using any other picture source if you’re anything like me. If you’re a registered Vladstudio user you can enter your credentials into JBS and benefit from the full-sized non-branded wallpapers. If not you’ll still see high resolution wallpapers and I’m sure soon enough you’ll be signing up yourself!

[Solved!] Companion users - please delete Companion from your computers
·16 April 2010
[UPDATE] - after 2 sleepless nights, I suddenly solved the problem of Mac Companion overloading Vladstudio site, though I am not sure how exactly I did this. Anyway, all should be working now! The post below is for historical purposes only.
Couple of days ago (not sure when exactly), something happened with all Vladstudio Companions for Mac around the world. They went crazy and started sending request to my site many times every second. Every Companion receives short piece of information, such as wallpaper name and link to an image. Still, for a single day, these requests took away 250 Gb of bandwidth. Requests come from all around the world, not from single IP. That means ALL instances of Companion are affected by this strange behavior. I am going crazy trying to understand why it could happen.
So I had to either lose entire website, or disable the Companion scripts, which I did.
If you are Mac Companion user, please help me by quitting the app and deleting it until I find the solution. Thanks!
UPDATE: there is a light in the end of tunnel. However, for Mac users of Companion, I also have to ask you to open your Home folder, go to Library/Preferences/ and remove the following file: com.vladstudio.VSCompanion.plist. Or, simply paste this into Terminal:
rm -f ~/Library/Preferences/com.vladstudio.VSCompanion.plist
Thanks for your understanding!
I've been updating my website slower than usually. This is due to two big projects I am working on hard. One is business and confidential, so maybe later :-) and the other is - the children's book!
Is this book interesting for you? Would you buy it? Your feedback is very much appreciated!
