I’ve been listening to Simon Jobling’s One Phat DJ, the excellent funky, sexy, house music podcast series. You should too. Twice a month, he outputs more than an hour of wicked house tunes. Give the April 2008 Crescendo one a try for instance. Of course, this is coming from someone who’s “musical compatibility rating” on last.fm is “Super” with One Phat DJ :)
So back to the subject of this post: wallpaper. I regularly feature wallpaper of house music I like, or rather wallpapers based on the artwork of house music that I like. Now apparently, I have the need to create a wallpaper out of everything I open in photoshop. I was supposed to be creating a cover for an upcoming podcast of One Phat DJ, when I realised I wasn’t busy creating a cover at all — it was a wallpaper! So while that means I had to go back to the drawing board, I still thought it’d be nice to share it with all of you.
The “One Phat DJ — Pro” wallpaper is based on a Sam Hardacre sketch of the One Phat DJ character as featured on the April ’08 Warm Up cover. While it’s obviously inspired by the NBA logo, this style seems to be used for a lot of pro sports now, even pro gaming!
