The Desktop Wallpaper Project

Mark Weaver : This Means WarGraphic designer Bobby Solomon curates an amazing collection of desktop backgrounds on his site (formerly Kitsune Noire). Solomon goes out looking for artists---illustrators, painters, photographers, album cover auteurs---and asks them to contribute wallpaper images for desktops and mobile devices.

He posts these in a variety of sizes for free download as The Desktop Wallpaper Project. I especially like this heat-packing mastodon man by Mark Weaver.
