HAIL, Part 1 – 2013 Season
August 26, 2013

I had the opportunity again this year to create the cover artwork for the MGoBlog annual ‘Hail to the Victors’ season preview magazine. I chose to retain the format of the 2012 cover but added a dramatic Michigan Stadium backdrop and replaced Denard Robinson (sniff) with Taylor Lewan. You might recognize the stadium backdrop from my 2011 ‘All That Glitters’ wallpaper.

For the first time, I’m releasing a series of three schedule wallpapers on the same day (wow, that sounds a little self-important). All three wallpapers are based on my ‘Hail to the Victors’ cover artwork and this one features a contemplative Brady Hoke. I like to imagine that we’ve caught Coach Hoke in his short sleeve shirt in 40ยบ weather, without his headset and deciding to go for the win instead of the tie.

The other two wallpapers in this series include Michigan Marching Band’s ‘Man Up Front’ and Offensive Tackle Taylor Lewan. Photos provided by MGoBlog.
