I don’t know about you, but I got in a rut with my desktop wallpaper. I assume most folks change their background on a regular basis but I haven’t changed mine in over two years. On top of that, I have a desktop and a netbook computer and I had the SAME image on both! How painfully uncreative of me.
I finally decided to change them. In honor of my renewed interest in Star Trek, I got a Klingon Bird of Prey on the desktop and the Enterprise (the one from Star Trek I and II) on the netbook. I’m actually quite surprised how much happier I am when I sit in front of both machines now.
And with that, I decided it was high time I made you guys some desktop wallpaper of my own.
I’ve never done this before but it looks pretty simple and straightforward. All I gotta do is make sure I offer various resolutions, right? I’m also interested in making some lil’ avatars as well. Basically, I’m just ripping ideas off another great cartoonist, Mary Varn, who draws the delightfully geeky NPC. Click here to check it out.
I have no problem with folks who charge a small fee for this kinda stuff, but to be honest, I just don’t feel like charging for this stuff. I like the idea of offering some sort of freebies. Plus, I’m lazy and don’t feel like figuring out how to set up the payment system.
My plan is to start working on designs this weekend and I’d absolutely love to get some feedback from you guys. Is there anything you’d like to see as far as wallpaper and avatars? Sock it to me.
