What inspires you? The original inspiration for this wallpaper came when I was browsing Border's blank-journal section looking for new design ideas and noticed an elegant cover that had a stylized floral branch set against a two-colored background. I wanted to make my own version of that image, and decided to incorporate an image of Glasses-Kino, because I needed a very simple image to match the theme and because wallpapers of Glasses-Kino are even rarer than wallpapers of Kino's master. The sky and birds were recycled from my Blooming Prarie wallpaper (in turn recycled of my True Blue Sky and Wings of Hope wallpapers) because what inspired Glasses-Kino to travel was the sight of a bird soaring freely overhead - an idea that he later passes on to Kino and Hermes. Simple, clean, elegant, and a change from my typical textured Kino walls.

    I like how clean this is. The sharp, thick lines really make it pop. I'm also glad someone made a wall with Glasses-Kino :).

    love the design, excellent! Reminds me of some old asian litterature book covers.
    I see some jagged lines however :P

    Another amazing work that screams out the power of well-executed simplicity... Ok I should stop before I get too mushy, but this one is fabulous, and I really like how it's very different from the textured Kino walls that you've been doing before. Yeah for the power of blank notebook covers to inspire! ~nominating for Simple-ism's featured gallery~ *^.^*
