is there such a thing as an etsy genuis? if so, this is it.
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...
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!

"I'll Take That One" Desktop (1920x1080):
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!
