Now that I’ve joined the masses (finally) and gotten myself an iPhone, I no longer have to covet all the cool iPhone gadgets and accessories out there – I can actually USE them! YAY!
I’ve experimented taking some photos and using various ones as wallpaper, but none of them have really spoken to me. Well, that’s all changed because this morning I stumbled upon Poolga. They provide digital art for iPhones and iPads. You won’t find any cheesy landscapes, scantily clad ladies or muscle cars there; Poolga focuses mostly on illustration, graphic design and typography. Some of it is kitschy, some is dark, but you’ll be sure to find something that suits you because their selection is VAST!
At this rate I’m going to need to change my wallpaper daily with all the great stuff I’ve found. Here’s are a few of my faves:
Oregonian, Carli Davidson is not only a nationally recognized fine art pet photographer, but also an animal trainer and caretaker. Her motto is your pet is beautiful no matter how many limbs it has, and she photographs all species and temperaments! Carli’s Shake Series displays just how beautiful she thinks pets are as all the shots are of dogs shaking their heads. And for any of you with a dog, you know just how strange, wild, wet and wonderful (or not) that can be. The proof is in the pudding – check ‘em out.
Creating a battlefield between the two disciplines, Ben Heine layers hand-drawn illustrations over photographs. Through these blended pieces, Ben shares “pieces of dreams” through illusion and surrealism. The main themes are love and friendship throughout the collection, some serious and some humorous. One thing is consistent, however. Ben’s hand is visible in every piece, emphasizing the intimate connection between the viewer and the action on the paper.
My girlfriends and I have already succumbed to the fact that we are all going to hell. The only decision left to be made is who will be driving the bus. I’d like to go on record and say that we all need to have this print hanging in our respective homes. It’s kind of like our motto.
