Two talented illustrators and graphic designers, Badiu and Nickerson, have joined forces to create a serious of delightfully cartoonish 3D designs and characters for desktop backgrounds. The illustrations are collectively titled, 'You're Disco is Dead.'

From kawaii skulls to goldfish jesters, the dynamic design duo don't miss a bit when it comes to whimsy. A word that immediately springs to mind when looking at this series is 'colorful.' While minimalism has its charms, there is something supremely satisfying about an unapologetic celebration of bouncy, vibrant colors.

The 3D rendering does well to give each character and setting a palpable sense of texture. Looking at these digital designs, one could be forgiven for feeling like they could jump into the screen and explore each color-soaked, surreal scene.
