Special Projects: Atlas

The ATLAS project began as a happy accident, as many things often do. One night in early 2016, I was watching one of Suvi’s brilliant Nashville videos when I heard, for the first time, the song “Sun” by Sleeping At Last. I quickly discovered that the song was only one in an ambitious multi-album series full of beautiful songs about life, love, and the mysteries of our expansive universe. Around that time, I had also just downloaded a bundle of new starry backgrounds that I was itching to use. After making a new Rayna/Deacon wallpaper using lyrics from “Sun,” I decided to continue making wallpapers for each of the songs on the ATLAS: SPACE album. My main motivation was to make more wallpapers for fandoms that were being neglected, as I had found myself returning to the same TV series and couples over and over again. It worked out so well that I then committed myself to finishing out the rest of the ATLAS: YEAR ONE albums. As promised to myself, none of these desktop wallpapers feature the same characters or relationships twice.
