ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
The latest addition to The Fox is Black's "Desktop Wallpaper Project" is this dreamlike image created by Timothy J. Reynolds.
My Lubuntu laptop has a screensaver that look like that! Very nice.
What I’d love is an updated version of the old Distant Planets screensaver, as preserved here: http://www.oocities.org/dpsaver/index.htm
Isn’t that the island from Myst?
No, but it really looks a little bit like it.
Looks very similar to a somewhat-less-overly-alien variant of the landscape aesthetic used in Darwinia…
little big adventure!!
Nice! In the same vein, I’ve used this guy a lot in the past http://DigitalBlasphemy.com, even buying subscriptions (money well spent), although now with digital cameras they way they are I tend to use my own photographs.
Reynolds has been posting a ton of work in this style on Dribbble, and I’m very glad to see him get some attention. It’s great stuff:
Any art that reminds me of Myst (or Riven) is great art.
Wow, thanks for posting my wallpaper! Cheers.
Thanks for having such a great moustache!

Camden, NJ's City Coffee has managed to thrive, despite the retail mass-collapse in Camden's city center. The coffee shop's secret is to offer every conceivable service.
