META: What Wallpaper You Got?

We're nearly a week away, and I know a lot of you love the wallpapers posted on this here blog. I'm always excited to update my background each season (sometimes multiple times per season), and this year's batch of backgrounds hasn't disappointed.


What I want to know is, what wallpaper are you going with for kickoff? Personally, I'm rocking this gem from Blue and Joe:


Post which wallpaper you're going with. If you haven't changed yours yet, then you have 7 days to get it together! Those posted to the board/diaries for reference:


[And if you have Michigan-themed wallpaper in your house, then go ahead and share that too: OT season is almost over.]

So, I know this was a forum topic a few weeks ago, but I can't find it. I'm looking for schedule wallpapers for the upcoming season. If there's an option for Android and Windows desktop, that would be awesome... Ideally I'd like to find a few outlets, if possible. I know previously, MonuMental did amazing work. But unfortunately, he hasn't posted anything since early 2015. 


So anyway, if you have any good resources for this sort of thing, please share!

2015 Schedule Wallpaper: You Could Be Drinking Whole Milk

I can think of no two individuals more alike than Jim Harbaugh and Napoleon Dynamite. They do whatever they feel like they want to do (gosh!), attack life/tetherball with an Enthusiasm Unknown to Mankind and express extremely strong opinions about one's choices regarding milk consumption.

"I see you're drinking 1%. Is that 'cause you think you're fat? 'Cause you're not. You could be drinking whole if you wanted to."

"Drink as much milk as your little belly can hold...the ideal is the whole milk."

In a lot of ways I feel like this offseason has been a time machine. Almost all of the things we hated about Michigan football have been fixed, as if someone turned back the clock to the glory days. Of course, one thing is still missing: wins.

This wallpaper is meant to harken back those days. Hopefully the wins come too. Enjoy.

Greetings fellow MGoBloggers!

This is my first diary - yay! I've been meaning to make some Michigan wallpapers and graphics for a while, but only recently have I worked up the courage to actually share them. I've been lurking on MGoBlog for many years now. I love this site and am happy to finally be contributing, even if it's just graphics.

Here's my first attempt at a general UM Football graphic featuring Harbaugh. Nothing specific - just lots of in-your-face Harbaughness. This image was from his days in SF, so I had to remove the SF logo and apply the Bo Block M - not perfect but it gets the job done. The "Welcome Home" theme has a couple different veins, the most obvious being to welcome Jim home. Additionally, it serves the purpose of welcoming our program's detractors back into the fold. No excuses from here on out. You're either in (Welcome Home), or never come back as far as I'm concerned. I was going to include "2015" or "team136" in there somewhere, but I wanted this to be more of a general graphic that can be reused year after year if desired.

I want to send a big shout-out to MGoDesign trailblazers like JonValk, monuMental and all the others who share their art and designs - thank you! Also big thank you to the MGoBlog staff and Brian for spinning the hamster wheels!

Sorry in advance if the image links don't work properly - I tried my best! Let me know if anyone has any advice as to how to post this kind of thing. I'm a quick learner and will get better at it.

If you all dig my work, let me know and I'll try to create/post more of it!

Here's a link to the full versions if the images above don't work:

I hope you enjoy! If anyone wants a different size/format, just leave a comment and I'll do my best to make it for you/everyone.

Thanks, and Go Blue!

Semi-personal background for anyone interested: I was born in Ann Arbor in '84, but have been living in FL for the past 20+ years. I didn't go to UM (terrible student in high school), but bleed Maize and Blue just like the rest of you (I do have former UM students and faculty in my family, if that counts for anything). I currently work as an Art Director, graphic designer and freelance multimedia artist. I'm all about simple designs, so you won't find anything too over-the-top from me. No crappy HDR filters, etc. Shameless portfolio plug: (this link is my freelance design portfolio and not sports related. I'm working on an Instagram page for sports-specific graphics - stay tuned if you're interested in following me there.)
