Shine On, an iOS wallpaper

Honoring Stanley Kubrick's horror masterpiece, The Shining

Preview of Shine On, the iOS background

A nod to one of the greatest horror movies of all time, Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. There are variations of the wallpaper available for the full spread of iOS devices.

The brightness and contrast of the original pattern are greater, which makes it difficult to separate foreground and background elements, so I tweaked both to help. It's probably still a bit strong for the home screen, but I find it works well for the lock screen.

If you isn't enough of a fix, be sure to check out The Overlook Hotel - there's a staggering amount of The Shining content there. Also well worth a visit is Coudal Partners' Stanley Kubrick archive.
