Six fun, festive and free phone and computer wallpapers
We wanted to help you roll out this year's gift-wrapping season with diverse and unique holiday-themed designs. Below you'll find options that will give your computer or cellphone a festive focus. Times art directors asked six illustrators, from Pasadena to London, to create colorful and cheery prints and patterns for the holidays. Read more about our illustrators below and download their images, which are perfect for anything you need to add good tidings to, including webcam backgrounds or the wallpaper for your phone. Also, print subscribers and those who purchase a physical copy of The Times at newsstands will get to explore these designs as wrapping-paper prints in Sunday's Weekend section. Also in the issue, you'll find recipes for holiday cookies. Lakey is an artist and illustrator in Joshua Tree, Calif.
