Singapore Artist Has Adorable Animal-Themed Phone Wallpapers In Soothing Tones For Free Download
We’ve done quite a few phone wallpaper compilations, but these are usually from international artists or large companies like Sanrio and Disney. It’s about time we shed light on our local talents as well, so here’s a shoutout for SmoreMermaid (@smoremermaid.studio on Instagram) - a talented Singapore-based artist who creates adorable illustrations of woodland creatures and turns them into stickers, washi tape, and other cute little knick-knacks.
She has very kindly created a series of phone wallpapers that anyone can download for free, and in line with her brand’s aesthetic, these all come in soothing pastel tones that will instantly calm you whenever you glance at your home screen or text convo background.
Read on to check out SmoreMermaid’s free phone wallpapers!
SmoreMermaid was started by Lienn, who used to travel the world for a living. When the pandemic struck, her career came to a standstill and she turned to painting in her free time. She realised that this was something she was passionate about, and decided to turn her art into stationery items. Her whole brand is centered around Teddy, a little brown bear, and his animal friends.
Since January this year, she has been releasing monthly phone wallpapers featuring her original characters. These come in 2 variants per month: one with just the illustrations, and one that’s calendar-style for scatterbrained folks to easily refer to for the day and date. Check them out below:

Raybie the rabbit is having fun catching butterflies in a field of daisies here. We love the sweet pink-purple gradient background!
Cotton the white bear seems to have made a new winged friend while frolicking among tulips in a garden!
The pair of bear buddies dressed up in kimonos in front of a red bridge, coupled with the pastel pink background reminiscent of sakura season, makes us miss Japan so badly!
Here’s one for the picnic lovers! Teddy sure has lots of snacks packed into his bento box.
June’s wallpaper has a tea pantry theme, with these little animal helpers packing tea orders at the Teddy Cafe.
Teddy’s having a chill time on a giant unicorn float, with his rubber ducky in tow. Perfect for Summer!
Do keep a lookout for the rest of the year’s wallpapers on SmoreMermaid’s Instagram account! All of the past months’ versions have been saved in her highlights titled “Wallpaper”, so you can browse through them and screenshot the ones you like best.
Interestingly, she also curates her own tea blends, with the packaging also featuring Teddy and friends. These can be purchased in full boxes or canisters, or as single sachets. Too cute!
