Flake: Free December 2011 Calendar Wallpaper

Thumbnail December 2011 Desktop Wallpaper

This post is part of the free calendar wallpaper series. Each month I create a new wallpaper featuring the current calendar. Looking at the same image over and over again is not very stimulating. Hence having a new desktop background each month should help getting your creative juices flowing. The Decmeber 2011 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled Flake. I suppose the inspiration behind this one isn’t hard to crack. It’s all about winter, snow & Christmas at the moment so it made sense to come up with a related design. Truth be told, the plan was to create a minimal Christmas tree, but it turned out that you can make an even nicer snowflake by copying, rotating and scaling the same tree over and over again. As a special treat this festive season there’s 2 versions of the iPad & iPhone wallpapers available, one for the lock screen, one for the home screen. If you like it then please help spread the word. + Continue Reading
