I finally broke down and did it. I’ve added a Pinup section to the site. The idea had been floating in my mind for awhile now, and this decision did not come easily. I was hesitant to do this for several reasons:
However, I came around when I started to think about the benefits:
So, here’s the deal. I’ll be updating the Pinup section each month near or around the 1st of every month with a new desktop wallpaper available for download in a variety of sizes. I’m going to try this for at least a year and just see where it goes. If it is really popular, and I still enjoy doing them, then there will be new pinups every month for the conceivable future.
Also, I have licensed all the work I do in the Pinup section with a Creative Commons license. Instead of the standard copyright, I’m opening this little project up to the public. You are free to download, share, and mess with these images in your own projects as long as you do not use them for commercial gain, give me original credit, and open whatever project my work is in under the same license. I am excited at the possibilities of this action, and I hope someone can use my work for something really neat if they would want to.
Finally, since these images are free, I have set up a Tip Jar for donations using BitPass. If you enjoy my work, and would like to contribute something for my time and effort, make a donation! If you donate more than $5.00, you are considered a Premium Donor! A Premium Donation grants you access to all of the high resolution layered source files of every illustration I ever post for up to a year!
Whew! I’m really excited about this! This little germ of a project has developed into something with a ton of potential within the span of a week, both personally and professionally. I hope you enjoy it!
