This is so adorable! Ever since I discovered your site, there has never been a time when my desktop image wasn't one of you beautiful creations! Thank you and congratulations for your talent! Your little pieces of art are always greatly appreciated all the way here in a little computer in Brazil!

Suzanne · long ago
Very sweet and on my desktop now, though the deep philosophical meaning eludes me :-)

Beautiful! I love your wallpapers so much that I'm advertising for you on my webpage--and using your tutorials to give my page a cool look! True greatness inspires others, and you've certainly inspired me.

aj · long ago
one of ur best works till now(:-D)...nice one!!! (Y) keep it up

Dhawal Vaghela · long ago
The contrast between the upper half and lower half is so stark that I just keep looking down, and then up, and then down again. My mind just can't catch the two contrasting images together in one picture. I guess when I'm able to do that, I would have learnt an important lesson. I'll be waiting for that day.

Vlad, will you please disable Ctrl-Left and Ctrl-Right shortcuts. Usually they're used as "one word left" and "one word right" when editing something like this comment. Accident pressing leaves the comment unfinished - this happened with me 4 times before I realized the reason. That's really distracting. (N)(N)(N)

Really great wallpapers. My computer screen is always changing. Thank you. (Y)

Might have a deep philosophical meaning but is just too complex. Your best works are simple yet deep in meaning.

all your wallpapers are so cool!! fantastic

zimm · long ago
just astonishing, wow. this work of art brought me here from some wallpaper site, and after browsing i have much love for all of your work. as a musician, i can appreciate the fact that emotion is everything you are trying to convey to your audiance. you have done this in a simple yet elegtant manner. all artists strive for this, and you have achieved it. you are now an inspiriation for me, thank you. keep up the good work.

MonsoonStorm · long ago
Actually Vlad, one suggestion, Would it be possible to extend the sides of the widescreen versions rather than crop the top and bottom off? Sometimes it loses the great perspective of the pictures, when I compare them to the normal pictures I think 'wow, that looks so much better!' For these ones I end up adding black borders or trying to 'hash' a wider version. Just a thought...

Angela · long ago
love love love love love it.

Sally · long ago
This made me cry. My best friend moved across the state last year and since then she's been really depressed and, dare I say, emo. We've always been on opposite sides of optimism. (I'm the one above the clouds) She always tells me how much where she is doesn't feel like home. What's worse is her favorite animal happens to be the giraffe. I'm not sure whether my crying is good or bad...

may11 · long ago
i lv so much. thanks

paula · long ago
This is my favorite one! I dont think its that hard to judge. im guessing its just saying having your head up in the clouds may not be such a bad thing, its better than being in the rain. or just having a positive outlook on life. Or maybe it is makeing fun of our society. I think that this is a great picture.

gabs · long ago
i love the way these are drawn ! they make them cute! ;-)

phontanka · long ago
Superb. Reminds me of looking down from a TV tower on a mountain. A storm underneath and clear sunshine above.

Liska · long ago
this work really gives hope :) but I see some details to retuch to make the philosophical meaning even more deep! may I ask you one question? how old are you, Vlad? :)

Anonymous · long ago
The deep philosophical meaning escapes my knowledge. Would you explain? I love your works. Ten thumbs up! (Y) x10

The whimsy in your creations is just wonderful. I have saved your artwork in a special little folder and just love having these creations on my desktop, they make me smile many days instead of shedding a tear. Your work is so very unique and special. I keep looking for more new ones each day. Thank you so very much for sharing your wonderful world with all of us. The tender sweetness in these is sooooooooo special...I am glad you are part of our caedes group of friends now also...thank you thank you...Verena

É meu amigo, gostei demais de suas imagens. Estou tentando aprender um pouco de photoshop mas depois de ver suas telas não sei se desisto ou me dedico integralmente. Sua arte é de impressionar. Quem me dera ter todo este talento. Meus parabens. Ass P43LO. вы поняли

Anne Kaelber · 14 March 2015
I absolutely *love* this piece of artwork and I would love to add my poem to it for a laptop skin. How do I get permission to edit the image to add a text layer, so I can order the skin?

mean guy · long ago
looks like a second grader did this

mean guy · long ago
lol- just kidding! I actually love all your wallpapers- thx :-)

mean guy · long ago
I'm not really a "mean guy"

Joey · long ago
It's a shame the logo is still as big so the START bar won't hide it :(

spliket · long ago
Joey, if you pay to become a registered member, you can download the hi-res versions of the wallpapers (these do not have the logo). plus, they look better!

Two series are all really cute :-)... You are the best!!!

nik · long ago

Justin · long ago
nik: hes not going to make the logo smaller just because you ask. if you want the logo gone, then register

Amy · long ago
Love your work...its always on my computer...keep up the great work!!

Jury · long ago
The meaning is - if you're a giraffe, you don't care, if you're a small human, you'd stick the balloon and then you don't care :-)

Vlad Gerasimov · long ago
Jury: true! I did not think about that. I changed keyboard shortcuts to Ctrl-Alt-Arrows. Enjoy (Y)(Y)(Y)

carmen · long ago
I love your stuff! Have you ever thought of printing it onto a canvas?

Vlad I am laughing all over the place! this is great. I had my own head in the clouds after having a tooth pulled last week and the dentists perscribed pain pills...before the pull, felt as though head was just above the water or in this giraff's case, rain! Thanks Vlad!! Jade

zimm · long ago
several proofreads, and yet, elegtant should read elegant.

It is realy good! (Y) REASONABLE! (Y)

MonsoonStorm · long ago
What a previous poster mentioned about China is true, I'm not sure which service provider you are with. I have to go through a proxy (which I pay for). However you are completely worth it! I love these 'two' wallpapers, and the others in similar styles. They are all brilliant. The subscription was worth every penny.

Vlad Gerasimov · long ago
MonsoonStorm: thanks. This will not be easy to do - I design all my wallpapers in 3200x2400 size, which is "standard" screen, and to produce widescreen I have no option but to crop the image.

gingus · long ago
Great Art .... So Yeah!!

The giraffes are my favorite animals, and this is my favorite wallpaper .... I think it is very beautiful and every time I turn on my computer and see it puts me in a good mood because I think it has a deeper message from that seen at first sight, whom you have done is a genius.... PS: sorry if this have errors...... I don't speak english

stistirillina · 31 January 2008
trovo questo sfondo unico nell'originalità e nella bellezza... veramente stupendo!

screaming mimi · 6 March 2008
how cute! this is usually how i feel every day have a great day!

chris[gr] · 9 April 2008
Vlad, a few things you might wanna know (or not): a. being so special as you, it doesn't bring friends, only people who respect and admire you and who -like me of course- envy you. I kind of hate you, but in a positive way. b. if i were filthy rich i would buy you and have you create just for me.

roro^_^ · 11 June 2008
woooow , I like your sence in this work , it is soo acsses -road , really you have funny ideas ^_^ , I like it sooooo much :D

This is a fantastic peice! i (of course) love everything that you do!! But i was wondering how you do these drawings....?.... :/ Keep up the stunning work! :)

Chandrakanth · 23 July 2013
I saw almost all of Vlad's work on this site... I like many of his wallpapers, but this one has no parallel. Beautiful, captivating, thoughtful, inspiring, innocent, deep, emotive. Its been 7 years that this wallpaper ruled my desktop. A thing of beauty is joy forever. Thanks Vlad!

Zoe · 25 June 2014
I love the style. Keep moving!
