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 senior offensive tackle Taylor Lewan. He’s a prototypical left tackle in the Jake Long mold, sometimes twosie rider, former pig owner, newly-minted Team 134 captain and a lock to be an NFL first-rounder next April.
