A proud ship once sailed along these waters; the ship carried a precious golden jar. Then, there came a terrible storm, and the ship sank to the bottom of the sea! There it layed, until a scary sea monster made the wreck his home; he guards the golden jar to this very day. If you go looking for it, mateys, you must beware of the Eight-Headed Sea Monster, for he'll challenge anyone who comes too close... YEOW!

Kwazii, The Octonauts and the Monster Map
Before my laptop ran into problems (which I'll explain in a later journal), I had been working on this wallpaper for about a week - my first one from this British children's show called The Octonauts. You've got a polar bear as a captain, a cat who loves swashbuckling and sorts as a lieutenant, and a penguin who can be brave in terrifying situations as a medic. (Not to mention a sea otter who loves science and is one of the two brains of the crew and happens to be my favorite character.)

I struggled to find what I wanted for this piece. I mean, I had some ideas in mind, but they wouldn't stick! So I took on a minimalistic approach. Not much, but worth it for a clean slate.

A JPG version of this file can be found here.

Songs listened to during the making of this wallpaper

For Digital Design, my classmates and I had to "zombify" ourselves in Photoshop, using techniques and some brushes and other resources to achieve this effect. The result looked AWESOME but somewhat graphic (for some of you), hence the Mature Content tag. (And I'm not even a horror movie kind of person!)

Wembley by AdrianImpalaMata
Bullet; Black Twitter: AdrianImpMata
Bullet; Red Tumblr:
Bullet; White #Wembley

Just a quick wallpaper made in 2 hours with something typography-related being the main focus of it all.

The towers sitting on opposite sides of the Wembley logotype I made for this one represent the Wembley Towers that once stood on what is now the new Wembley Stadium, while the curve that stands between them represents the arch that towers over the structure.

A JPG version of this wallpaper can be found here.

Wembley logotype made in Adobe Illustrator CS6.

Coming off the unveiling of my new logo yesterday, I'm leaving all of the MLP-related groups I've been in up to this point (including EquestriaDigital and MLP-FIM-wallpapers, where I served as a moderator). Just want to start over with a clean slate.
