Nothing Says Happy Independence Day Like Grand Theft Auto V Artwork


Rockstar Games is putting on a small fireworks show of its own this fine Fourth of July holiday. But instead of pyrotechnic explosives, they’re lighting up your PC desktop, iOS device, Blackberry, Vita etc with a colorful display of original wallpaper artwork from the sprawling open world of Grand Theft Auto V.

These new art pieces also offer a glimpse into the lives of other Los Santos residents who aren’t named Michael, Franklin, or Trevor. There’s Lamar, Franklin’s partner-in-crime who apparently enjoys jacking cars as a favorite hobby. And then there are Tracey and Jimmy, the daughter and son of Michael, one who dresses like a slut, and the other who spends his time gaming, hitting the bong, munching out and flipping his sister the bird. I’m guessing Michael isn’t a very good father figure.
