Wow, thanks. That is seriously cool.
Wallpaper Season - Central Michigan
Wow, it's been an eternity in MGoBlog time since I posted a wallpaper. I've had a busier schedule than I could have ever imagined. My wife and I welcomed our 2nd child, a beautiful baby girl named Norah. I've also had to adapt to being a parent to children, not just a child. Let me tell you, that is a much different beast.
All of that to say this - I'm sorry that it's been so long. I'm hopeful that too much hasn't changed in my favorite corner of the internet. I haven't missed much other than 12 or so "redshirt" threads, it seems.
This wallpaper is going to be hit or miss with you all, I'm sure. When trying to decide what type of wallpaper I'd go with for the Chippewas, I came up with several non-PC options (indian casino, putting Brady Hoke's face on a Chief, etc.) and then landed on the dreamcatcher design. Believe it or not, I like to incorporate some depth/history into my wallpapers (HEY, that Zombie Toussaint wallpaper was totally cerebral..get it? Brains?...anyway...), so I did some research on the Chippewa people. One big cultural/artistic piece I came across being attributed to them was the dreamcatcher. Now, I'd made one back in elementary school and it was cool then, but I was stoked to make a 2013 Michigan Football theme for my new catcher of dreams. I used that as my base and threw in a picture of a random Michigan field for good measure.
I wanted the wallpaper to have the schedule on it, so that's why it's there. I did add a texture to the overall wallpaper to give it an interesting feel, so it's not as clean-cut as some in the past, but I like it (and in the end that's really all that matters, right?).
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and will use it or perhaps my Scenic Michigan Stadium wallpaper until Notre Dame week arrives. One week, ladies and gentleman! Let's Go BLUE!!!
Enjoy and GO BLUE!
That is brilliant! My excitement for the season just went up about 2 notches. You are very talented and obviously pretty creative too. Keep them coming.
YEEEEEEE... IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!!!!!!!!!
oh hell yes.
now you know we're getting close.
I went to Michigan for undergrad and Central for grad school. Of course, goes without saying, I'm hoping Michigan rolls on Saturday & I don't want a close game. As much as I like the idea of Michigan curbstomping everybody they play, I'm always in the "respect your opponent" camp. Probably a little more for CMU than I would for most other schools. As such, I really enjoy this wallpaper. I mean, I enjoy all your entries, but this one feels perfect. Well done.
