Another great selection! Thanks for the eye candy.

Those designs are creative and extremely beautiful and awesome to a Grunge-junkie like me.

Just a pity that most of them aren’t high resolution, and considering artwork can be scaled down and not up, and that 22″ and bigger monitors are very widely used, it’s sort of annoying.

I wouldn’t like any of these as my desktop, I like wallpapers which when I do see it, will make me smile slightly.

Thanks Tomas for the collection. Some of these are pretty fresh (#20-Tree Island for example), but most of them have elements that have been beaten to death and are almost archaic.

I love grunge, but designers really need to stop using free, pre-grunged typefaces. It turns something potentially great into beginner rubbish.
