May You Live in Interesting Times

Apr 15
Hiya.

Here’s a new wallpaper for you- MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES. I’ve heard it’s an ancient Chinese curse (though no one seems to be able to attribute it to China). This thing took ages to make, and I exhausted all my resources for public domain images.

Also, five new backgrounds. Four of them have a nautical theme. Did you know that the Titanic sank 99 years ago today?

Also I made a background of the cutouts from the wallpaper, since there was some good color to be had.

In my next life I’ll be a minimalist who finds harmony in beige and taupe. They say taupe is very soothing.

    Love your blog, I’ve subscribed to it for a long time via google reader and have used many of your backgrounds as wallpaper on my laptop, thank you for the amazing colourful work you do.

    I was wondering if you had considered fabrics, like making digital fabrics with your patterns on Spoonflower?

    Aw, thank you. I have made some fabric with my designs on Spoonflower before, and you can purchase a few designs here: http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/totallysevere

    I only have a small selection available there, but if there’s a specific image you’d like to see printed as fabric let me know.
