Hi! This page remains from my original, first set of Web pages, which are long since defunct. When I began with a Windows 3.1/386 machine in 1997, the creation of these images was a stretch. . . . :) Times have changed.
As a reminder for me--and as a service to you--this page will not be moving again. :)
I probably won't be adding anything to this page, but it will remain right here until at least June of 1999 when the agreement with my service provider expires.
These pages have been on-line--and moved twice--since late December, 1997.
These panels make good Windows wallpaper: they were based on a photograph with Maya from the reverse side of the 1976 Power Records album Space: 1999. I endorse Space: 1999 and links to excellent Space: 1999 Web sites are available below.
I used the Windows 3.1 Paint program to make .BMP files. I then converted those files with ThumbsPlus (which I recommend) into the .GIF files displayed full size here.
Even though the photograph I had to work from was only fair, I did attempt to stay faithful to the original designs. The only intentional alteration made was the addition of the red label to the grey ventilation panel.
Directions that will teach you how to download the graphics using Netscape on an IBM-compatible computer are below. Converting graphics using ThumbsPlus is simple and fast. You can download a Shareware copy of the program, which I find to be useful and of high quality, from Cerious Software, Incorporated.

Later, to convert the file to .BMP format and use it as wallpaper [instructions are based on ThumbsPlus procedures]:
