Music brings a lot of joy to our lives.
Both Angelo and I find comfort in playing and listening to music. Hearing the right song at just the right moment can alter our mood, and the entire trajectory of our day.
For Angelo, he has a special relationship with music. He has been a musician for 20 years. He’s recorded albums, toured the country, all that stuff. Knowing how to play several instruments, he finds beauty in the components. Seriously, though, he can talk about a single instrument for an hour.
When he draws an instrument, he infuses his vision of beauty into the illustration. This snare drum illustration is one only a musician could draw. Surreal and colorful, this illustration puts the focus on the small details, and design of the instrument.
(You can see his loving care of his own snare drum in this tutorial)
These two original illustrations, by Angelo, were so cheerful, and so inspiring, they inspired me to add my own vision of joy.
So, I drew the illustration of the rainbow-and-clouds, and the back-drop for the happy punk wallpaper background.
I feel like, together, these original illustrations are absolutely necessary for any happy-go-luck types who also give zero f@#%s.
These are free wallpaper backgrounds for the kind of person that embraces a walk in the rain, just to see a rainbow. But also the kind of person that will flip you off, if necessary.
Have fun decorating your smart phones, tablets and desktops with our free, happy punk wallpaper backgrounds. Just download and set as your home or lock screens. Nothing says ‘don’t break into my phone’ like a happy punk, flipping you off.
The gorgeous drum illustration should hopefully remind you to walk to the beat of your own drummer. A punk drummer. And have a great day!
