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.
