Nice work yet again monuMental. Glad that you got it worked out so far and hopefully they let it go. I really like the look of the helmet, looks really genuine and real. Keep them coming (if your able) because I love your work.
2010 Schedule Wallpaper - Maize is Blue - Game 7 Iowa
So you've probably heard by now about the cease & desist letter I received from legal representation of the University of Michigan and the Heisman Trust, and that I decided to take down all of my wallpaper artwork last week while I worked things out.
The original legal notice was founded on the misunderstanding that I was manufacturing Denard Robinson action figures. After I explained that the action figure is not real (but that I was amused that they thought it was) and that I am not trying to make money from the project, I received a follow-up e-mail indicating that their perspective was that I was promoting my business because the wallpapers were hosted on my business web site. Which, OK. I can see that perspective. I was honestly not trying to make a link between the two (and had actually taken specific steps to avoid the crossover) but I've moved all of my artwork to a new, personal blog and believe that satisfies the demands of the cease and desist.
I'm really going out of my way to be cooperative and the University's lawyer has been reasonable so there's a chance that the wallpapers could disappear again if they don't agree with my interpretation of their legal position and want to talk about it some more.
Let's move on to this week's wallpaper which you will be able to enjoy seeing on your bright shiny screens until 3:30 p.m. tomorrow and maybe for the duration of the bye week if we can pull off the upset...
Close your eyes (not literally because then you'll have to stop reading) and picture a typical Iowa family sitting down for dinner...
There's a plate full of charred animal flesh and a pile of home-grown corn. Dad sits down at the table. He offers thanks for the meal. He picks up a piece of corn. He takes a bite. He cracks an incisor in half on a little Michigan helmet! Yeah! Come on scientists! We can land a man on the moon but we can't inject a chemical that grows little Michigan helmets into Iowa corn crops?

yet another awesome piece of work. Thank You!!!
Great stuff as always! Love the winged helmet kernel. Rocking it right now on all three screens at work!
Glad to have these back. Excellent wallpaper for my computer here at work. Thanks!
Great job, keep them coming.
God, that's awesome. Glad you worked out everything.
The Pacnard just wasn't doing it for me.
Great job as usual. I really appreciate your assiduousness on getting these back and available to us.
This is my favorite so far I think, very well done.
I look forward to these each Monday, so was a little disappointed that they tried to shut you down earlier. Glad you are back up and running. Another great wallpaper!
Thanks for making these available every week. They are all fantastic.
And I love that it was thought you were marketing the Denard action figures.
+10000 to you!
I think you're a cool guy
I heart your talent. thanks man.
Made my week. I was super bummed that I'd never see these again. Oh happy days! Great work, as always!
Awesome stuff, as usual. Wish I had this level of skill with Photoshop/other imaging programs.
I'm glad to see you got everything worked out and could still put these up. Great job on all of these and keep up the great work. Look forward to these weekly.
...could use a little butter.
Great work, yet again!
Sir, you must neither cease nor desist!
I always did love the multicolored corn my mom would buy at Halloween. Now I'm inspired to replicate the desktop with some real life corn and my daughter's paints...
These make my week! Hope everything works out with the U on this, they should look into distributing your wallpapers on the mgoblue site.
You continue to amaze, monuMental. This is definitely your best weekly to date, though I do have a soft spot for - and often go back to - the Denard season-long action figure edition.
Man I love these wallpapers! Keep it up!
