somehow we're only 124th
OMG IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN!
Ok, so I'm headin to Indy tomorrow evening to attend the game on Sunday, so I wanted to make sure I got this out in time. I hope you enjoy these. I did two slight variations of the same idea. I like how they turned out and, quite honestly, I think these could make SWEET t-shirts. Anyone who knows of a t-shirt maker that could do this quickly, hook me up and I'll send you the files (they're photoshop currently, but I can convert the main graphic to vector for illustrator or indesign printing). I'm honestly not sure the last time I was this excited to attend a sporting event. I didn't get to go to UTL (biggest regret of my sporting life), so I'm hopeful that Michigan has a strong showing against the one-and-done poster boys of UK. Honestly, I was hoping for a revenge game against Louisville, but I'll take it because OMG ELITE EIGHT! As usual, constructive criticisms and/or ideas for new wallpapers are always encouraged/welcome. Enjoy and GO BLUE!

I vowed to have a wallpaper done for ya'll for tomorrow's game and HERE IT IS! I actually made two, and while I definitely like the first one best, the second actually took me longer to put together. I just was TOO frustrated with my keyboard/mouse combo that I have yet to replace to go any further in refining it. Hope you like them. As always, constructive criticism and/or ideas for future wallpapers are welcome. BEAT THE VOLS! CHARLES WOODSON! 2014!

That is it. This wallpaper was SO much fun to make and, in my humble opinion, one of my best works from a pure photoshop experience. Last year I was on my game for the Tournament wallpapers, so I'm trying hard to bring it again this time. BTW, I know you wouldn't put a tag on a trophy piece, but it helped the image.
Anyway, hope you like it. Here's to rooting for back-to-back Sweet Sixteen appearances from the Wolverines for the first time since the Fab Five. Go Blue, beat Texas!

It's that magical time of year when the weather seems poised to thaw the cold of a brutal winter and March Madness is on the brink of wiping out all productivity I hoped to achieve at my job. At home, I spend my time trying to beat last year's wallpapers for the tournament. Here's a hint: I don't think (outside of another Final Four run) I can even come close to topping last year's bevy of well-crafted work I pulled out of my ass at 2 am. But, hey, I can try to at least give you something decent to work with. That being said, these are just some generic wallpapers I've been working on this week (yes, I know it's Monday...THIS WEEK...it's a sad obsession). Hopefully, you will enjoy at least one of these until I get a tournament-flavored treat ready for you. That is, if I don't collapse from sleep-deprivation before uploading them. Also, my keyboard and mouse are dying on me...

"Not just a shooter!" Desktop (1920x1080) [Comic-style panel #3]
Ok, so these were quick and fun. I enjoyed putting the three panels together to form one super widescreen set-up at home. As I mentioned above, hopefully you will find one or two to hold you over until the real wallpapers arrive with the tournament. As always, constructive criticism and/or suggestions for future wallpapers are welcome.
Re-live "The Trey."
