We return to our regular programming. It’s a Jason Brooks wallpaper. Based on an Hed Kandi house music album cover. It’s bright and vibrant. Features a chilled out, relaxed babe on a stripy, pink background. It makes a fantastic desktop or mobile background.
To celebrate their 10th birthday, Hed Kandi released a very special compilation album with hits from past present and future. The cover is fantastically understated and uses simple lines to conjure up the wonderful feeling of being swept up in a great evening.
After a winter break, we’re back with more wallpapers! We’re starting off by fulfilling a request from Simon Jobling for a nice dark background. Jason Brook’s work for Hed Kandi is usually bright and vibrant (his work for Virgin Atlantic which the red wallpaper is based on had to be toned down quite a bit). Luckily, he’s also done some work for Chanel.
And now for something completely different. Well sure, it’s still a wallpaper. And sure, it’s still based on (a cleaned-up and adapted version of) a Jason Brooks illustration. But it’s not based on his work for either Hed Kandi nor Fierce Angels!
Now here’s a double Jason Brooks wallpaper feature! Well, not really a double feature like the Fierce Disco Angels double bill last year, when two completely distinct illustrations were featured. This time round, both wallpapers are based on the same Hed Kandi Nu Disco cover by illustrator Jason Brooks.
From Jason Brook’s first tenure at Hed Kandi comes this months Disco Heaven wallpaper. I hadn’t seen this particular piece as wallpaper in a wide-screen format, so working from a nice large 1000×1000 square image I extended the piece. This made a nice change from editing out the background like I usually do. Hope you like my clouds!
It’s was time again to dust off the old Photoshop. Whilst I’ve continued listing to House music, it’s been
a while forever since I’ve put together a wallpaper of any sort, let alone one featuring Jason Brooks illustrations.
One Phat DJ — Pro Wallpaper
Recently i’ve been listening to Simon Jobling’s “One Phat DJ” podcast, which is an excellent funky, sexy, house music podcast series. You should lsiten to it too. Two times a month, he outputs more than an hour of wicked house tunes. I can recommend the April 2008 Crescendo episode. Note however, that this recommendation is coming from someone who’s “musical compatibility rating” on last.fm is “Super” with One Phat DJ 🙂
When Hed Kandi creator Mark Doyle
sold the label was forced to let go of the label [thanks for the clarification Mark] to Ministry of Sound, he left to start is own label with illustrator Jason Brooks.
