Today I present you a new wallpaper exclusively from this blog. Obviously this wallpaper was inspired by US election 2008. Well, I don’t want to get political but I really like the visual identity and campaign presented by candidate Barack Obama. The graphics and typography are strong and giving big impact. Although it’s just a word “CHANGE”, it really gives the feeling of new hope and courage.
Actually I made this wallpaper a day before my previous company shuts down. When I reopen the file again, it really gives me nostalgic feeling because things had changed around me. For me “CHANGE” is a word with huge meaning, and it is all up to the person whether to take the move to make the change, in order to lead to a better oneself and future.
Please download the wallpaper with various resolution to choose from. It’s time to CHANGE your wallpaper 😉 .

It’s been a messy last month and yesterday I browsed through my documents, and I totally forgot that actually I made a wallpaper design and actually wanted to submit to Smashing Magazine October wallpaper. Well I missed it and this is my late post for October 2008 wallpaper!
As usual, my wallpaper design is dark based with simple graphic. It features a clock that formed the number “10” which indicates October, with the October dates on the right side. The color is monochrome and basically the design was done in Photoshop. Below are the wallpaper resolutions for your desktop. It’s a bit late to post this as October has come but I hope you like it!

Last month I bought an 8GB iPod Touch in order to listen to Learning Japanese podcast when riding train to go work or away from keyboard. I’m absolutely love my iPod Touch very much but certainly it needs cool wallpaper to accompany with. So I stumbled upon this cool site from Pixel Lab, where they release these awesome looking wallpapers for iPhone and iPod Touch, and it’s really perfect for me! 😀
The wallpaper artworks are actually from their various works, for example the Hard Typographic Artwork Series. I like particularly the third series which is Tree, the treatment of the visual manipulation and playfulness of typography just lovely. The first series: Human and second: Flower are cool too.
An eye opener
Surfing into Pixel Lab’s blog is truly an eye opener to me. Pixel Lab is a very creative team from Japan and they are focused on Flash technology, ActionScript3, 3D, design, photography, visual, original tool and artwork. For most of the work, they use Flash and Fireworks, including the Hard Typographic Artwork Series mentioned above. Like me, you might think those are Photoshop powered, but actually it’s not.
You can view their archives to take a look in their awesome Draw Tools where they built it to construct those such unique visuals. And the good thing is they are so kind that they put it up for us to try it out! I personally tried this DRAW HardMotionBlur, and it was fun! Pixel Lab is cool! 😀

Japanese certainly are expert in good looking and cute handwriting style fonts. So, since I wrote about this post a while back, I think it’s time to go hunt for more free Japanese fonts, and the finding was good. I found these 12 really nice handwriting style fonts that are free to use! Banzai!
All these 12 Japanese handwriting fonts here are able to write in Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji, as well as Romaji characters and Numbers. There is one even can perform emoji too. So, the font files are quite huge. As usual, I will give you a screenshot of the fonts, as well as the link to the original page and a download link. Many of the fonts are zipped and some of them are zipped in .lzh format. I recommend to use WinRAR to extract it. Here we go.
Hello everyone I’m back with the new free wallpaper that designed by me. The inspiration came from the character that I sketched quite some time ago. I think it’s quite cute so decided to redraw it in Illustrator and make it into wallpapers.
I really like the expression of the “creature” (supposedly a dragon/godzilla inspired character), which giving me a kind of “Who? Me?” uncertainty expression. The dark background and the spotlight effect adding up the mood. Hope you like it and make it into your desktop wallpaper. As usual, various sizes to download:

It’s been a while, here are 15 pictures of the pretty and talented Japanese idol Hirano Aya! I get to know her because of my forum friend Igorism who his blog entry about Hirano Aya had deeply poisoned me. I am not sure why I admire her, but it is going to be her multiple talents. She is a seiyuu, she sings and she plays music intruments, not to mention her cuteness and sexiness!
Hirano Aya (平野 綾, born October 8, 1987) from Aichi Prefecture, Japan, is a seiyū (voice actress) and J-pop singer who has had roles in several anime, visual novels, and TV commercials in Japan. Her popularity was increased significantly thanks to her breakout role as Haruhi Suzumiya in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. She also did other voice over characters in several animes like Nana (as Reira) and Lucky Star (as Konata Izumi).
I forgot how I get to know her, but I think is somewhere where there is a news about the trendy icon is no longer my idol Ayumi Hamasaki but her. I do some picture search about her and I found out that she is pretty! And her name is Ebihara Yuri (蛯原友里).
