A dual-widescreen wallpaper for my work monitors, but I thought I'd post it here for kicks.
As a native of the California Bay Area, the legacy of the 1906 quake has surrounded me my entire life. It truely was the Quake of the Century for California, and changed the course of CA history. You could even say the quake is responsible for my living in CA, for my great-great grandparents on both sides of my family came into the United States as 'paper sons', bypassing the Chinese Exclusion act by passing themselves off as the children of Chinese already living in California, as all the previous records were burned in the ensuing fires.
So, to celebrate the centennial of the quake, later this month, I decided to create a wallpaper. A seismograph outputting a quake that looks remarkably like the Golden Gate Bridge (or half of the SF-side of the Bay Bridge, your choice.)
Just a simple vector.

    Hmmm..
    If you don't mind it looks a whole like the Cisco Systems Logo m in the thumb though the full sized image is different.

    It looks very new, but quite the unusual one. >_< It looks very cool and weird at the same time. I would like to see more of these work! ^_^ Keep it up!

    Nice art conceptually - one has just got to admire how you managed to combine the idea of the quake with SF's symbol.
