Why 2 artists and why these 2 artists? Well, 1. They’re awesome 2. They both were asked to create a wallpaper for Desktopography. Created in 2005, The Desktopography Project is a site where you can download high quality nature based desktop wallpapers made by talented designers. It’s by invite only, but if you feel your work is up to snuff, they encourage you to contact them. It’s a fun non-profit initiative with stunning results. Wallpapers are available in many different sizes for free, so find some you fancy and spread the word! Check out their 2011 Gallery.
I’m never disappointed when Adam Spizak publishes a new project on Behance. Spizak is a Polish illustrator and designer whose work has been featured publications like Computer Arts and Advanced Photoshop Magazine. His wallpapers are some of my favorites and usually inspire compliments from curious onlookers. I just direct them to his Behance Portfolio or the blog that he co-created with Gregory Machon called Art is Navi.
Billelis is a nickname for Billy Bogiatzoglou who is a digital artist with a passion for photo-manipulation, illustration, and 3d and motion graphics. He’s a member of the Keystone Design Union and I believe I was first introduced to his great work through a Coca-Cola competition that I entered on Eyeka. I thought his entry (among the best submitted) was lively and powerful . Check out Billelis’s Portfolio on Behance.
