Computer desktops and backgrounds

Find an enormous stash of free desktop wallpapers and background patterns, all designed by Sarah at Totally Severe. According to Sarah's bio, she was raised and educated by pirates. That explains a lot of the wackiness in her artwork, I imagine. Pirates are always so silly.

And a tip about background patterns for the non-computer savvy: when you download a file and want to make the pattern cover your desktop or Twitter page, there should be an option called "Tile" in your settings. Select it, and the pattern will repeat across your screen.

These are so awesome! My work computer desktop is the "proverbs" wallpaper and my iPhone now says "Harry Potter is the gateway drug to hard literature" -- It's a teacher's dream :) AWESOME!!!! Thanks Jessica!

I teach in a Korean school and my vice principal (with limited English) always comes by and examines my wallpapers and asks for a translation when there's words on it. I'm excited to see what will happen with the "Proverbs" background!
