Already in the late 1990s, I was sometimes playing a little bit around with some graphics manipulation programs. The first results were not very impressive, but a few were quite good in my opinion, so I made them available for you.
You can obtain the wallpapers by simply clicking onto any of the thumbnails and storing the image from within the opened window or by saving the link target directly to your system.

- Lots of wallpapers for Microsoft Windows (TM) have a Windows logo at the right bottom; so do some wallpapers of other distributions as well. Of course, that looked nice to me as well. Hence, I created a Debian logo for the unstable 3.0 branch and also inserted it into some of default Xfce wallpapers. They are mainly with a transparent background in order to allow the user to choose his preferred background colors while only giving kind og image/pattern to him; but I also offer them with the default background blue colors from that time.
- When searching for free music for playing at an event, I discovered Jamendo. In order to give them a minor amount of tribute during that event, I created a wallpaper to show at such events and perhaps have some visitors/participants talk to you about what Jamendo is.
One of my first tries with a few layers, patterns and lightning resulted in this not-so-bad metal background.
It also came to my mind, to try some 3D effects and insert a little cross inside, kind of Gothic if you like. You can place some icons inside, or simply admire its cleanness.
Coincidentally, nature allowed me to take this picture of a crow sitting on some power lines right from a window of my flat.
