Free Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: February 2011

This may be the strangest memory of my entire childhood: at some point I acted in a class play in which I played the role of February. Yes, February. I was a whiny little month, complaining that I was the shortest month and also the one that no one likes because the weather always stinks. I don’t remember how the play ended. Actually, I don’t remember if I had the audience eating out of my hand or if I stank it up. I probably stank it up.

The fact is that February just isn’t the best month—it’s that one between the start of a new year and the start of Spring. But you know what will help brighten it a little bit? Some amazing desktop wallpaper. And so I asked a whole lot of graphic designers if they would like to come up with wallpaper that is appropriate for the month. And now it’s free for you to download.

So go ahead—brighten up your month and download some great wallpaper.

A few notes: 320 x 480 is for your iPhone; 1024 x 1024 is for your iPad; your desktop or laptop may take any of the other sizes depending on your monitor size and a host of other considerations. You may need to ask your computer-whiz nephew to help you figure out the one that’s best.
