WALLPAPER, GRAPHICS, ICONS, STYLE, FONT & BB INTERFACE SCRIPT INCLUDED.
The wallpaper is based on the artwork "Astrid"  by Xanphre www.deviantart.com/xanphre with the artist's permission. Xanphre is both a writer and an artist and he is really prolific, with a kind of prose both funny and fascinating. He describes his books as a combination of Dark Fantasy, Horror, Science fiction fantasy, erotica, and epic fantasy. He has no less than eight stories currently running on :devart: and since I love his comics style, I designed this theme as a comics-style theme.
Icons come from tthe Litestep theme Dangerous Fire by SuperDuck from 1999. All character artwork originally from www.dangergirl.com. As usual, in my themes I try to pay homage to the great, long gone shell of Litestep that paved the way for a radical transformation of Windows, with Blackbox being the sole alternative shell survivor.
The font is Another Typewriter, a freebie by Johan Holmdahl from 1999.
Everything on the desktop is Blackbox-created. No Rainmeters, no Window Styles, no third party apps.
The wharf is included in the zip file, but it's mainly a template, since your apps and/or the paths to them differ from mine. You can edit bbinterface.rc or the wharf itself by ctrl+right-clicking on it and add your own apps and paths. OR, you can ask me to do a custom bbinterface for you and I will gladly do it, free of charge.
For more information on Blackbox, latest builds, plugins, chat and information, visit blackbox4windows.com and, if you are still wondering what Blackbox is, read this www.deviantart.com/pitkon/jour…

Nice collaboration with Astid :clap:

Cool addition of a homage of sorts to music psychedelia too :highfive:

Thanks millions, Richard! Tried to port a comics atmosphere here :)

And, of course, I knew you'd be the only one to notice the Afterglow album :D

Most welcome, Pete...yeah, I just had to play "know-it-all" :lol: :beer:

A good thing you did. And it pleases me a lot when you do! Not many around who know their 60s music.
