Why Do Designers Hate Blackberries?

I don’t know about you guys but I don’t have an iPhone. I think that they are really cool devices, but they are just not for me. I used to have one of those old HP Pocket PCs, it was then when I learned to seriously despise a touch screen device. Try texting with one hand with one of those things, it’s not an easy task. I want buttons! I don’t like having to look each time I press a key to make sure I’ve pressed the right one. That makes a Blackberry the most obvious choice for me, not an iPhone.

Wallpaper of the Week Vol. 4

Sorry for the late post this week.  It has taken me a while to catch up on things because of the long weekend.

This week’s wallpaper is a tribute to General George S. Patton, the famous commander of the U.S. 3rd Army during WWII.  In this piece General Patton salutes members of the Third Army prior to delivering his famous Blood and Guts speech on the eve of the Allied invasion of France in 1941.  This piece is a portrayal of that moment as depicted by Franklin J. Schaffner’s 1970 Academy Award winning film “Patton.”

Bonus: Wallpaper of the Week Vol. 2

In celebration of Colorburned Studios’ first week as a fully-functioning blog, I’m releasing a second set of wallpapers today.  Today’s bonus wallpaper is based on another one of my favorite designs.  My rendering of a transparent glass-shaped flower was the result of the intersection of a number of techniques that I developed in Photoshop.  I found the final result of those techniques to be a breathtaking piece of art.  If you feel the same way, feel free to download this wallpaper in any of the 4 different resolutions below, or if you own an iPhone, download the iPhone version.
