Kicking our free wallpaper series off is this gorgeous tiger illustration by Ben the Illustrator (aka Ben O'Brien). Having worked in the design and illustration world for over a decade now, Ben takes inspiration from nature and creating inspiring, epic and ethereal landscapes. He has been commissioned by and collaborated with, among others, Smart Cars, Pixar, Westfields Shopping Centres and The New York Times.

Ben on his illustration: "My workload recently has been focusing on a new range of fabrics; mostly measuring fabric and discussing manufacture. So a lot going on but none of it creative! My everlasting itch to illustrate is not being scratched, so I've been taking breaks to quickly illustrate simple images of birds and animals.

"They're proving popular online and are really liberating to do. Some take eight minutes or so to artwork from the sketch, this tiger took 20 minutes. Occasionally working super-quickly seems to really loosen up the process and can also teach you a few new tricks!"
