I'm a big fan of Noir, Pulp, Steampunk, etc, and so Automata
, by the Penny Arcade
guys, was right up my alley - black and white noir detective story, with a splash of colour, featuring a minority race of mechanical beings? Hell yes!
This wallpaper, though, was by the amazingly talented guy behind AppleGeeks
, inspired by the Penny Arcade concept. I love the style, and the texture - and wish he released a hi-res version (or prints) of the poster version
As a wallpaper it also works very well, as the textured background peeks out around windows, and Regal often peeks out at the RHS of the screen behind windows.
I change my wallpaper very rarely, and I suspect this one will be here to stay for quite some time.
Click through for the hi-res version, and check out the original post
over at AppleGeeks.
Another creative person animated the Automata comic to music
, which is also pretty spiffy and worth a look.
