Bowl season is right around the corner, and this time around Cards fans get to wait until after new years to watch their team get back on the field. In just his 3rd year Charlie Strong is taking his Louisville Cardinal back to a BCS bowl, where he will face the 3rd ranked Florida Gators. Florida is where Charlie made a name for himself, so you know he will have his team ready to play. This is without a doubt the toughest game Strong has had in his time at UofL, and arguably the most important game ever for the football program. No one is giving the Cards a shot, an upset on January 2nd would continue the momentum Strong and company have started.
Hope everyone enjoys the wallpaper. Feel free to share with the world. Thanks for looking, and let me know what you think. I also want to give a special thanks to Brandon Pry (Prudat) for the pictures of the UofL players. Visit his site CardShout and check out his photo galleries as well as his graphic design work.
I know I’m a day late, but here is a schedule wallpaper for everyone interested. I’ve been doing these for the last few years, and they always seem to go over pretty well. This year I decided to keep it pretty simple, and just feature the logo rather than a player/players. I may make a few more with a player or two, but this way you can rep the whole team and still stay up to date on who is up next. Feel free to let me know what you think, and thanks for looking.
There has been a lot of talk about Kevin Ware this offseason, and from the feedback I’ve heard from the red/white scrimmage, it is well deserved. Ware has always had the athleticism to make an impact, but his suspect decision making and ball handling held him back last year. That appears to be in the past, and Kevin is expected to make an impact for the number 2 ranked Cardinals this year.
I’ve done a couple wallpaper with Dieng blocking the moon, and they have gone over well, so I thought I would put a new twist on it. The picture of Ware was taken by Matt Wickman from Hell In The Hall, I hope to use many more of his pictures in the future. Take a second to check out his work, you won’t be disappointed.
The first basketball wallpaper of the 2012-2013 season goes to Peyton Siva. Earlier today Siva was voted preseason Big East Player of the year by the writers, which is good enough reason for me to make a new wallpaper. Siva is obviously going to be a big part of the team’s success this year, and there isn’t a player I would rather rely on.
I want to give thanks to Brandon Pry at cardshout.com and Mike Rutherford at cardchronicle.com for the pictures used in the wallpaper. I look forward to seeing and using their pictures this season. Check out their sites and show them some love.
Earlier this week news came out that Mike Marra had once again torn his ACL, this time likely ending his playing career. Marra never really had a chance to show what he could do at UofL because of injuries, but I was always a big fan . Mike’s. Sure, he was a streaky shooter, but he could be an exciting player to watch. He could jump out of the gym and when he got hot, watch out. Since his career is likely over, this is likely the last Mike Marra wallpaper I will do, so I hope everyone likes it as much as I do. This is my way of thanking Mike for his time at UofL, and hoping he has a quick recovery.
I’m assuming that if you are on my site, you have probably visited Card Chronicle before, but if not take some time to do so now. It is a great site for everything UofL, and there really isn’t a site that compares. Mike Rutherford does a great job getting news out to fans in a way that keeps the reader interested and coming back for more. Card Chronicle has recently been named the best blog in Louisville, and rightfully so. So again if you haven’t visited be sure to check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
Mike has showcased some of my work over the years, and has helped me gain a lot of exposure. In return, I decided to put together a wallpaper featuring the sites new logo to gives fans a chance to rep the best blog in Louisville (and arguable the world).
The first new wallpaper on Covered In Red goes to Mr. Teddy Bridgewater, and rightfully so. Although Teddy didn’t have a great game on Saturday, he kept his composure after an early pick and did enough to move the Cards to 4-0. Bridgewater is starting to get national attention, and if he can put the FIU game behind him that talk will continue to grow.
Instead of making an individual post for each wallpaper that I’ve done over the past couple of years (hundreds), I decided instead to make pages for each category. They are pretty self explanatory, so look around a bit and find one that suits you. Below I’m going to post a few samples from each page, just so you know what to expect.
First, I’d like to thank you for visiting my new site. My name is Adam Lucas, and I’m a graphic design student and life long UofL sports fan. For those of you that haven’t seen my work before, I create UofL related wallpapers for your desktop or mobile device. At the top of the site you can visit the pages to find UofL logo, football, and basketball wallpapers. Take a second to check out the work I’ve done in the past, and follow me on twitter to stay up to date on my new work. Feel free to contact me with any request, questions, or comments. Thanks again for looking, hope to see you back soon!
