The Tech Deck Retro Desktop Wallpaper

Because everyone needs something as rad as this as their desktop wallpaper.

If you're interested in how I made it, I created it in Adobe Illustrator following the gist of this tutorial:

Create a 1980s Inspired 3D Text Effect in Photoshop

Since I wasn't using Photoshop, none of the actual instructions apply to AI, but you can fake it till you make it like I did. Some things are significantly easier in Illustrator and somethings are impossible, so YMMV.

And yes, that solar flare is ridonculous.
