Seahawks Graphics and wallpapers for 2015

 

I am proud and honored to use my Photoshop skills to express the awesomeness of being a 12. I have been making these graphics throughout the 2015 Season. I share them on my FaceBook page and on the 12 Man FaceBook page. You are welcome to download them and use them, as long as you don’t use my graphics disrespectfully or post them on any website that promotes hate or discrimination, and you must leave my graphics wholly intact.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seattle Seahawks against the Dallas Cowboys, November 1, 2015

Personally, I don’t have anything against the Dallas Cowboys. They’re as good a team as most others in the NFL. But one of my best friends loves the Cowboys and loves to talk smack about the Seattle Seahawks. That’s OK, I know it’s all just wishful thinking on his part. But still, talking smack about my Seahawks is an offense that will not go unanswered. So on behalf of my friend, and the simple fact that the Seattle Seahawks are a better team than the Dallas Cowboys, I came up with a couple graphics to show my support and sentiment.

Seahawks vs 49ers October 22 2015

As football fans in Seattle, there are a few teams that we just love to play. One of those teams are the San Fransisco 49er’s.  Whether the 49er’s come to Seattle, or the Seahawks go to San Fransisco, we like to roll out the red carpet and let the 49er’s know that we 12’s love and respect the 49er’s dearly. And to show how much we love the 49er’s, I made a few graphics to share with the world. Feel free to save and share.

Playing around with Adobe Creative Cloud

Photoshop is one of my favorite graphical tools. Lately, I have been testing Adobe Creative Cloud, which has taken Photoshop from the desktop to the cloud, and I have to say, I love it. Here are a few graphics that I created.

I call this Cosmos, and it’s kind of symbolic of some of my personal philosophies. The fun thing is that if you stare at the white spot, things start to shift around. I started this graphic with one of the triangles that was actually part of a different graphic. I cropped out the shape and cleaned it up,… Continue reading
