Giveaway: Win One of Two Justin Maller Art Prints, Courtesy of DL and the Facets Wallpaper App (Update: Winners Picked)

If you are a fan of MKBHD or have seen our writeup on the Facets wallpaper app, then the name Justin Maller may sound familiar. Last year, he set out to release a different digital piece of art each day. Now that he has completed that task, the world was clamoring for an easy way to access his work, so Justin created a Facets wallpaper application for both Android and iOS.

To celebrate the launch of both applications, Justin offered us two 12 x 12 art prints to give away to our readers. Available is a print of Prowl (the lion) and a print of Totem (the dragon). Both feature bright colors, excellent design qualities, and can be had by you for the price of nothing.

As always, we will use Rafflecopter to make sure everyone who wants to win a print has a fair way of doing so. On Rafflecopter, there is an option to leave a comment in the section below, featuring a screenshot of your homescreen with a wallpaper from the Facets application. The wallpaper app is available through Google Play for just $0.99, however, it is not mandatory to do that. If you don’t have Facets, just leave a comment with which print you would like to win.

Let’s do this.  (more…)
