Books (Color 3)

Vlad Gerasimov  ·  15 February 2012
Allow me  to start by saying I'm quite happy with this drawing, so  if you are not for some reason, I beg your pardon :-) I'm usually not 100% satisfied with every new picture, and just get too tired to continuously improve it, so  I just stop somewhere. This time however, I did enjoy the process till the end! And it took me several days to complete. I wanted to try new technique, so  I took a gel pen and A3 paper. After couple of days of relaxed drawing, I scanned the result and continued in Photoshop - added text layers, colors, effects, and some little details (which took another couple of days). I also made several color variations, because I  am not sure which color combination is better, so  I figured I'd publish all of them. As you can see, this picture is very hard to use as desktop background - it  is too busy with details, hard to see any icons above it. This is intentional. Usually I design my wallpapers with lots of empty space, to make them easy to use. This drawing was specifically designed for my highly successful collaboration with DecalGirl.com - they sell vinyl skins for laptops, phones and other devices. So  I made this drawing with print in mind, not screen. You might even want to get a poster - I can assure you it will look impressive :-) P.S. If you're curious, the text written on the pages is from Alice in Wonderland - no wonder, is it?

Oh, I love it even as a background for my computer desktop, too. I've only a few items on it and I simply put them onto different book pages. ;-)

It's lovely, thank you!

This is so great! This decal goes directly on my wish list for my birthday (in less than a month)! I already have the Decal Girl skin "Library" on my Nook. I get a LOT of compliments on it - especially when I'm in Barnes and Noble. ;)

Verry Good, Vlad. I had been waiting for a desktop background related with books and or reading and this one is perfect. Thanks once more.

Beautiful. I think the green is my favorite. Even tho it's very busy with all the books, it has a sense of rightness and peace about it. And I laughed when I spied your icon on one of the books. :D I think I'll have to look into Decalgirl. This would be an awesome skin for my MacBook Air since I use it for writing.

ChristineA: thanks! Everybody seems to like this green version more. Unfortunately only brown version is available as a skin at the moment.

ChristineA  ·  17 February 2012
Argh! I saw that. Might there be a chance of the green being offered in the future? If not, no worries as I don't think I'd have a problem finding another skin I'd like. :D Your work is so unique & beautiful it'd be a pleasure to have any of them on my MacBook!!

These are wonderful. I love the green one - soothing even with the busy pattern. I have the library as my wallpaper now - time to change. :)

This actually works great as a background on my Mac., which has the icons at the bottom unlike a PC. I absolutely love your art. Thanks so much!
