Christmas Stuff 2004 Calendar Wallpaper
card features a cheerful gremlin distributing Christmas gifts. Just print
it out and then fold to assemble. There's even a place for you to write a
message inside! The card was created by me on December 8, 2003. It's in
PDF format, which means you need Adobe Acrobat to view it. (You can
download that here.)
Gremlins Ornaments Coloring Sheet
This sheet features four gremlins on Christmas ornaments
you can print out and colour. Then cut them out and hang them on your
tree! The sheet was created by me on December 8, 2003. It's in PDF format,
which means you need Adobe Acrobat to view it. (You can download that here.)
This calendar consists
of twelve printable month sheets, each featuring the cover of a different
Roald Dahl book. You can download all twelve as a single zip file (508KB) or grab each
month as you need it using the links below. The calendar was created by me
on December 17, 2003. The month sheets are in PDF format,
which means you need Adobe Acrobat to view them. (You can download that here.)
Months: January / February / March / April / May / June / July / August / September / October / November / December
"The Books of
Roald Dahl" Wallpaper
This tilable 800x600 wallpaper was created by me on June 25, 2000. It features some of my favorite Dahl book covers along with a small photo of the man himself.
"The Gremlins" Wallpaper
This is a true tilable (683x424) wallpaper created by me in the summer of 1999. The images were scanned in from the inner lining of Dahl's hard-to-find book The Gremlins. They were then cleaned up and positioned to scatter randomly around your screen.

"The Mildenhall Treasure" Wallpaper
This image (496x493) of the Great Dish from the Mildenhall Treasure looks great centered on your desktop against a black background. It was created by me in July 2000 from an image at the British Museum's website.
"Tales of the Unexpected" Wallpaper
This tilable wallpaper is perhaps a bit risqué to use at work, but I had a lot of fun making it. It features the dancing lady silhouette from the opening credits of "Tales of the Unexpected" and it was created in August 2001. As with the Wonka bar design below, you can use either the small version (at right) or the large version (by clicking the link). I know it looks dark, but trust me, it looks much better once you've got it tiled on your desktop.
"The Witches" Wallpaper
This is a tilable wallpaper (272x220) that comes in six different colors: pink, red, yellow, green, blue, purple. It features Quentin Blake's illustrations of The Grand High Witch of All the World in both her "pretty" and "scary" incarnations, along with the Grandmother and her mouse Grandson.
Wonka Bar Wallpaper
This stylish wallpaper (200x100) features the well-known Wonka logo from the film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I recommend you try both the small design (right) and the large version. Again, this one looks deceptively dark but it'll be much clearer on your desktop. The contrast needs to be set low so your icons and stuff will still be visible.
