New wallpaper

NEW WALLPAPER!I was feeling the need to make something in photoshop tonight, and was trying to avoid doing work on my CISC499 presentation, so I made some new wallpaper. I present you with two wonderful versions: glorious 1280×960 and magnificent 1024×768. Enjoy.

I made the image with a bunch of brushes and fonts from misprintedtype.com. Check it.
