HAIL, Part 2 – 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 ‘Michigan’s Man Up Front,’ he of high-stepping and head-touching fame. The Michigan Marching Band is an important part of the game day experience; more important than the final score according to former athletic director Bill Martin’s game day experience survey. I had a request from a current Michigan Marching Band member for a band-inspired wallpaper and I’m happy to oblige.

The other two wallpapers in this series include a contemplative Coach Brady Hoke and Offensive Tackle Taylor Lewan. Photos provided by MGoBlog.
