Impressed

On the road this week, so it's another photo. Took this one Saturday outside the Swedish Embassy in Washington, DC. They had several blocks of ice sitting out in the warm sun from the same river that they use to make the famous ice hotel.

Disconnected

This improbable collection of telephone poles is actually a setup for something called the Gaff-N-Go Rodeo for linemen, which took place here in Lynchburg, Virginia last week. I know I promised a return to digital art this week, but it is an original digital photo - that counts, right?

Tulips

Short on time this week, so I'm reduced to running a filter on a photo I took last week. I'll try to get back to some bona fide digital art next week.

Bracketland

OK, sports fans! Here's your "Road to the Final Four" map representing the 2007 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. (Sorry, no 1280 x 1024 resolution this week - the proportion didn't work with the map. Use the 1600 x 1200 instead.)

About The Weekly Wallpaper
The official desktop wallpaper of The Partial Observer features original illustrations by Mark D. Johnson, founder and editor-in-chief of The Partial Observer.

Look for a new wallpaper every Tuesday — think of it as our weekly cover art a la "The New Yorker." The weekly wallpaper is expected to vary considerably in subject matter, although it will sometimes be geared toward significant events and holidays surrounding a given week. Some weeks might be elaborate, other weeks simple. Your (non-spam) comments are always welcome.
