Mobile Phone Wallpapers
These are the 4 customized wallpapers that i made for my new mobile phone. Apparently my new mobile phone is a Sony Ericsson K750i. Fear not, you wont get another lousy blog phone review. I absolutely abhor that. I'am actually more interested in the wallpapers i made, then the new phone i have. We are not usually interested in the things that comes as expected. And unfortunately, i have an abnormally high standard of expectations for the things i have in life.
The first image is japanese caligraphy. By its text formating, it suggests that this is in ancient times, perhaps in the 16th to 17th century. It is shown as a full page in Volume 5 of Lone Wolf and Cub. This has also been my desktop wallpaper for almost 6 months now. I really love this image.
The text translates to:
True joy is to take pleasure in ones own accomplishments;
Courtesy is to learn from the models of the past.
Do not the ancients say,
in death the wolf turns his head towards the hills ?
This is virtue.
The birds fly, returning to their homeland;
and without fail, the dying wolf turns his head towards the hills.
The second image is of a glorified Motoko Kusanagi, from Ghost in the Shell, in some form of ascension. I have this as my screen saver.
Here the first image is of a gothic angel, i am unsure of the source. I love the imposition of the etched circular facade and the wings. A fine piece of art. The second image is that of Motoko Kusanagi again, from the front covers of volume 1, Ghost in the Shell manga.
