I've been meaning to post here since I first discovered it, and I thought, "What better way to spend my first day of March Break then to post on desktop splooge?" Well, errm, not really. But I felt like posting anyway :). Here are some recs.


Artist's Name: Nicola (I'm a groupie! Yes!)
Artist's Webpage: Reject Reality
Fandom: Everwood (Amy/Tommy)
Spoilers?: Errr. The last episode before the hiatus, I suppose.
Wallpaper?: Yes. 800x600.
Link to Art: it is so pretty
Description of why you like it: Well, mostly I love it because it's pretty. But why is it pretty? I love how Nicola always manages to evoke a certain emotion with her work, and this piece is just so sad. I love the choice of the screencaps, and the brown tones, because it matched that scene perfectly. And the choice of words were just right. And just, guh.

Artist's Name: Nellie
Artist's Webpage: Art Girl
Fandom: None. But it's Liv Tyler. I think.
Spoilers?: Nope
Wallpaper?: Nope
Link to Art: snazzy!
Description of why you like it: Nellie's work always screams of originality, and this one is simply no different. This piece is just really clean, and well done, complete with the subtle, perfect touches. I'm usually not a fan of combining black/white pictures with colour, but this one just works somehow. The lines on the background, and the wavy text really contribute to a somewhat retro feel. I lovelovelove the touch of adding a white ribbon on the piece, and it's just too pretty.

Artist's Name: Angie
Artist's Webpage: Photogenic
Fandom: The OC
Spoilers?: I don't believe so.
Wallpaper?: Yes. 800x600.
Link to Art: ain't it beautiful?
Description of why you like it: I love the lightness of this piece, and hey, it's actually happy, which I can appreciate from time to time. :) The pastel colours, along with the pictures, convey a sense of winter glee. And just guh. The colouring is just wonderful. The mixture of yellow, and blue, and pink is so sheer, but it makes all the difference. And also? It kind of looks like they're in a GAP ad.

Artist's Name: Aubrey
Artist's Webpage: Obsess Much?
Fandom: Everwood
Spoilers?: I don't believe so.
Wallpaper?: Yes. 800x600.
Link to Art: hee!
Description of why you like it: When I saw that silly picture of Gregory and Emily, I immediately fell in love with it, but I had absolutely no idea how anyone could make something simply lovely with it. But I was proven wrong. I love the original composition of this piece, and the repetition of the single picture, without making it tired or boring. This piece reigned my desktop for weeks, simply 'cause it made me smile.

Artist's Name: Allison
Artist's Webpage: Sweet Release
Fandom: The West Wing
Spoilers?: For "The Woot Canaw" episode. I'm a terrible fan, because I don't remember the name, but that line should be enough.
Wallpaper?: Yes. 800x600.
Link to Art: hee! It's Josh.
Description of why you like it: The West Wing is one of those fandoms with brilliant fanfic writers, and horrible fanartists. It is just so rare to find good fanart. Allison has proven to be, in my opinion, the best one out there that I've found. This composition of this piece is simple, but it simply captured the feeling of this scene perfectly. And the quotes used? Perfection.


(And now, I am absolutely exhausted)
