I was trying to find the date for the Red Birds image and came across a DVD full of forgotten stuff (YAY). This is a desktop picture I made for myself in 1999, going for neutral-but-interesting. It looks as though it has a repeating pattern, most likely made with a photoshop plug-in called Tesserae. I went a bit crazy with Tesserae and made hundreds of tiles. Eventually I learnt how to make ones with simple geometry directly in photoshop. 1024 x 768px and ooh look, it has my full name on it.
