Take a solo trek through the back streets of toontown or gaze upon pastoral fantasia. You'll find an astonishing variety of familiar and fantastic locales at Bob Richards' Animation Backgrounds blog.

Why, there's even a plate of beans without the beans.

Worth a thousand visits to MOMA, Guggenheim, or the Whitney Biennal. Beautifully drawn and composed -- they should also get some conceptual propers for being created to flash on and off in less than a second, lingering on the viewer's retina and memory, rather than mouldering away in some museum.

These put me in the same mindset as video game background collections, but with a bit more back-story and probably requiring a lot more work. I've tried to stitch together some panoramas by taking a series of still-shots, and it's rather time-consuming work. Thanks for this!

Awesome for finding wallpaper (on your computer or mobile phone).

I believe that would be bean, singular.
