Where the Wild Things Are Movie and Book Drawing Wallpapers (All Sizes)

This is a far better collection of wallpapers than that on the Where the Wild Things Are movie website because there are:

  • Wallpapers for more monitor sizes, including gigantic wide screen 2560 x 1600 pixels, and other wide screens like 1920 x 1200 pixels and 1440 x 960 pixels.
  • More images from movie scenes, like book illustrations, the video game and fan art.
  • More saturated images with punchier colours.
  • Cleaner images with advertising removed, among other features to enhance the graphics I found.

The collection below is ordered by wallpaper size, listed in the titles, then characters in the picture by alphabetical order. Please note that if you have a monitor size different than the ones listed, one of those listed should be able to work for you because:

  • 1024 x 768 pixel wallpapers are also good for 800 x 600 monitors
  • 1280 x 960 pixel wallpapers are also good for 1152 x 864 and 640 x 480 monitors
  • 1920 x 1200 pixels wallpapers also good for 1680 x 1050, 1280 x 800 and 960 x 600 pixel monitors

The wallpapers of book illustrations are quite detailed so please be patient upon loading (1-2 MB pending wallpaper size).

87 Where the Wild Things Are Backgrounds for iPhones, iTouch, iPod Touch, Palm Pre and Blackberry Bold 9000s (480 x 320 pixels)

Where the Wild Things Are is an award winning and well-loved children’s picture book written in 1963 by American author Maurice Sendak. Just 338 words and 18 pictures long, it is about the wild adventure of a boy named Max who is sent to his room without his supper by his mother as punishment for misbehaving. There, he has adventures where he meets strange creatures, the “wild things”, while in his wolf costume. It is an endearing favourite, and has won the Caldecott Medal in 1964, among many other awards. However, it is the general population’s love for it which has made it a masterpiece.

Out of this short book comes a highly anticipated full-length movie due in theatres, including IMAX giant screen theatres, on Oct 16 2009.

Beyond the appeal for children, this story has a lot of appeal for adults as well. There have been an incredible number of articles, popular and academic, analyzing everything from its mythology to psychology. Two examples include a favourite of mine, Monsters Ink (Boston Globe, Oct 4 2009), and one I chuckle at for being over the top called Where the Wild Things Are: Sendak’s picture book and the monsters personified, sanctified and glorified (PDF) by P. Fitzsimmons. Mind you, if you think that’s over the top, you should see what the Anti-Twilight crowd does to thrash Twilight books!

Anyway, despite all the anticipation around this movie, I wonder if it’ll get the same kind of fan base as Transformers, GI Joe, Twilight and such who will do things like carry its image around on their iPhones, iTouch, iPod Touch, Blackberries and Palms. I have my doubts, but the only way to find out is to put it out there to see. There’s a cute little child and some furry monsters, nothing charismatic like the human actors in those other movies, or fancy robots. But we’ll see. Regardless, I’m going to have to get out and see what the hype to this movie is all about. The trailers above looked great and fun. It’s taken them a long time to get the film produced the way Maurice wanted (story), but it looks like they’ve got it right. I really like the song, too! It’s called Wake Up, by the Arcade Fire.

These backgrounds were made from images I found on the Internet, touched up, removed crap on, cropped and resized for the iPhone, iTouch, iPod Touch, Palm Pre and Blackberry Bold 9000. I grabbed some from trailer screen captures as well so there are some “new” graphics here. To get the backgrounds, please:

  • Click on an image to see it full size.
  • Right click and choose Download or download in whatever ways your browser does.
  • Click Back to go back to this page or click a thumbnail below the large picture to move on to the next one.

You’re on your own to put it on your iPhone, iTouch, iPod Touch, Palm Pre or Blackberry, I’m afraid, cause I can’t justify the need for me to spend money on one so I haven’t got a clue how to do it!

Enjoy!

Soccer and Rugby Fans Facebook Friends Tagging Challenge

I created these tagging challenges for fans of North American, English and Aussie rules rubgy, or people who know lots of those fans. The tagging challenges can be done on Facebook, MySpace, LiveJournal or other platforms where you can tag people on pictures.

The idea is to see how diverse is the group of soccer/rugby fans you know, and how does that compare to your fellow soccer/rugby loving friends. It’s no fun if everybody supported the team you supported, you know!

  • Pick a Facebook tagging meme of your choice based on the leagues below: Major League Soccer (MLS), Rugby Super League (RSL) and National Rugby League (NRL).
  • Tag one person you know whose favourite team is represented by the team logo. It has to be that person’s favourite team as you can’t tag a person twice on the same photo.
  • How many teams can you tag? And how does this compare to your friends who might have done this same challenge?

Here’s how to get these graphics for your tagging fun:

  • Click on a picture below to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends!
