A simple wallpaper with double entendre :-) for those who, like me, have lots of icons on desktop lately. As always, Adobe Photoshop only.

Did you draw the pieces yourself? Best wallpapers on the internet, no question about it.

ha ha, Excellent wallpaper as always. Great to see some orriginal and inspiring artwork available at 2560x1600. The lifetime membership is the best money I've spent all month, cheers Vlad!

Nice pleasant background without to much distraction.

Andreas L. Madsen: Thanks! Sure I did them myself. I used stock photo as a reference, but all shapes are created from scratch with Photoshop Pen tool, lights and shadows with Brush tool. I will publish a short tutorial tonight.

Влад. очередная замечательная работа! Продолжай в том же духе! Но меня по-прежнему мучает вопрос, будет ли развитие раздела с обоями-часами.

This is a unique idea I haven't seen elsewhere. There is also a possible mistake on your homepage. Some of the category titles are missing letters. I'm not sure if that was intentional or accidental.

Jaideep Nadkarni · 17 November 2008
Very creative thought. Charming as could be...

Alex Givens · 20 November 2008
