My fave to date: Lichtenstein meets 60′s comics, with some raw edges to add a hand drawn feel. Some images were photos I found that were put through trace, shading, and halftone effects in GIMP. Others are vintage styled black and white Getty Images that I applied color and cel shading to. As you can see, there are a lot of visuals for this theme, but not that many actual widgets needed. Aside from Missed It! on the matching lockscreen, all apps/widgets used were free on the market.
