Hi everyone, 

I'm Ben, and on the net I'm Skwid and have made a few wallpapers
Artworks  for gnu.org, Parabola GNU Linux-Libre (the official wallpaper
on distrowatch is mine), the Hurd, Dash/Denarius (cryptocurrencies),
Replicant Project and others.

As a user (or maybe fan will be more adapted) of Trisquel for more than
2 years, I've made this morning three wallpapers that you can find here
https://github.com/OccultusCaudex/independent-artwork/tree/master/trisquel .
One for Trisquel GNU Linux 8, and two others from "generic" Trisquel GNU

So everyone can use it, share it, modify it..

Enjoy :-)

PS: more are coming... :-D
