Stellar Storm: Free December 08 Wallpapers

December 2008 Thumbnail

Every month I give you a new Calendar Wallpaper. The idea behind the monthly calendar wallpaper series is that you don’t have to open a program to find out what day/date it is. Just look at your desktop et voila. Furthermore the wallpapers should inspire you. Looking at the same image over and over again is not very inspiring. Hence having a new wallpaper every month should get your creative juices flowing. Since it’s Christmas season and it’s all about giving I decided to go the extra mile and prepare two different versions. The December 08 Wallpaper comes in blue and orange. As always you also have the chance to download non-calendar versions of the wallpapers (entitled “Stellar Storms”) in case you want to use it at a later time. That is not all though. For the first time ever I included iPhone versions as well. + Continue Reading

Featured Artist: Erik Jonsson

Erik Jonsson is a 26-year old graphic designer and art director from Sweden. Parallel to running his own agency Elapse he works freelance and studies Digital Media. So yes, he is a busy boy, and a talented one at that. I can’t say that I like every of his designs though. Some are to “corporate” for my taste. His more experimental art however is just my cup of tea. I like the retro and grunge feel. Get a taste for Erik’s art here and then head over to his portfolio.

Free Vectors: Ink Trees

I shall give you a free vector set containing 21 ink tree silhouettes. They were all hand drawn with india ink and a bamboo stick before being scanned in and traced. The biggest advantage of vectors is that they can be scaled to any size without loss of quality. That makes them ideal for large prints, t-shirt designs and any other project which needs high resolution resources. I am really happy with the outcome and I hope you like them aswell. As always with fudgegraphics freebies you may use them in personal and commercial artwork. + Continue Reading

Featured Artist: Dimo Trifonov

I’ve been following Dimo Trifonov for some time on deviantArt where he showcases his designs under the alias of denull. I didn’t find much information about him apart from the fact that he is from Bulgaria. It’s not that important anyway. What matters are his extraordinary design skills. You should definitely check out his portfolio on dA for more inspiration.

Featured Artist: Stina Persson

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of watercolour art. I discovered the art of Stina Persson, an illustrator from Sweden who works almost exclusively with watercolours. Her work is really inspiring and very refreshing in the digital design world we’re living in. This should give you some new ideas as to how you can use my brush sets.
