"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Ok, so since this is Back to the Future year, I figured I'd do a BTTF-themed work. I wanted to have some fun and not put WAAYYY too much time into this, but I did do my homework. Most of the expressions are near-perfect and I put a few Easter Eggs in the layout. I hope you enjoy it. This was mainly for fun, so I'm less worried about constructive criticism for this piece.
Bonus content, t-shirt idea art.
Enjoy! Go Blue!
Ok, so I've done a couple Harbaugh-themed works in the past day and saw at least one request for them to be posted. I will be working on a Beilein painting to pair with the Harbaugh one, In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these. I suppose the Harbaugh painting could be used as a mobile wallpaper, however, it was purely for fun at this point, so it's not sized appropriately to be perfect. As always, constructive criticism and/or suggestions are always welcome. The inspiration for the painting came from learning how to do some painting-effects in Photoshop and blending with old paintings to make them look plausible. I think, for a first attempt, it turned out pretty well. I'm sure I'll get better with practice and this is, after all, not my day job. I have four more days of freedom until I'm bound by work duties again, so I'll try to bang out some more work for ya'll in that time frame. God Bless and Go Blue! HAPPY NEW YEAR! HARBAUGH!
Im going to be gone for the Thanksgiving holiday and won't get more than this done. I like how it turned out, but I always love feedback/suggestions. My heart's just barely in it this season, so I apologize for the drop off in wallpapers (Basketball WILL have a few ready before B1G Season). Even so, I HAD to make one for "The Game." Because OH HOW I HATE OHIO STATE...
GO BLUE. BEAT OHIO STATE.

Enjoy and GO BLUE.
It's that time again. Wow. It's already that time again. That glorious time of year when Saturday afternoons bring bliss and heartache, elation and dismay, victory and defeat. It's time to cheer for the Champions of the West (ironically in the B1G East) and sing Hail To The Victors until our voice is gone. When do we play and to whom do we send defeat? All that and more are answered in the following wallpaper gluttony. In case you missed some of the earlier wallpapers I made in the off-season, I've included those. I hope you enjoy these as they are a labor of love for my MGoBrothers and MGoSisters. We may not always agree on everything (Is Art Deco cool? Is Hoke the man for the job?), but one thing we all can agree on is that we support our Wolverines and to hell with Ohio State.
Ok, ladies and gentlemen - mostly gentlemen, let's be honest - here is my newest creation. I saw the Butkus/Lombardi nomination picture of Jake and immediately thought it looked like a Captain America style shot. So that's what I did. Behold, Jake Ryan, "The Autumn Soldier." I hope you all like it. 27 days until JMFR hits the field in glory. As always, constructive criticism and/or suggestions for future work is appreciated. Mobile and assorted other formats to come as they are finished. Enjoy!
First in a series I'm working on. I'm on vacation starting Saturday, so nothing new for a bit. Hope ya'll like this. As always, constructive criticism and/or suggestions for new wallpapers are welcome. I will diligently try to make content that the MGoBlog community wants. I'm adding two versions of this wallpaper (one with "Redemption" under the M, and one without) and a mobile version will follow shortly. It's getting closer...
