Banner War...

About a week ago, Chris stopped by after work to hang. We watched a sweet Jet Li movie, played some Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and talked about life (things both serious and crazy). He also told me that he had started a blog. So I headed over to take a look.

I was dismayed to find a bannerless, plain looking blog. So, I decided to bless my friend with an amazing, Back to the Future inspired banner. I spent about 10 minutes working, then looked upon it and said it was good. Chris uploaded it, and the world was at peace.

Then, five days later, another of Chris' friends created a banner for him. And while this banner was, in its own right, awesome, I felt, as Daniel Plainview would say, a competition rise up within me. And so, I declared a banner off.

I promised Chris I would create, for him, the Sistine Chapel of blog banners. And here is what I delivered...

Not bad...

So, Chris' buddy, Tim, is up next. Head over to Chris' blog to see what he comes up with...

But in all seriousness I hope this banner off continues even after my latest submission is posted probably sometime later tonight.

I had no idea you were so good at graphics design. Are you self-taught?

I am. I took an interest during my internship and started asking questions and reading books. That and tons of time fiddling with Photoshop and Illustrator in my spare time.

Of course Plainview settled things with an especially sturdy bowling pin ... just something to be taken into account.
