Always news to be met with a resounding "meh...", I added some more wallpapers to the 1600x1200 gallery. And yeah, the one with the moon in it, the moon is vector-drawn. And yes, that six-pack is "GNU Ice"... the beer that's free as in beer!

But let's talk about the bottom two (or the last two of the five, depending on how the floats align) for a minute. Those two are my exploration of a form of graphic art I've seen emerging in places like Deviant Art... as close as I can figure, the form, which is filled with concentric circles and splats, is or may be known as "grunge", "emo", or simply "vector abstract" style.

Examples here, here, here, and here.

Now, I'm probably an old fart who's just now opened his peepers to a trend after it's already jumped the shark, but it does seem to be a new genre of digital art, perhaps shaped more by the fact that it's incredibly easy to draw circle and lines in vector. If anybody out there knows its proper name, do be so kind as to clue in the old bean, would you?
