Graphic success at long last

I make it sound like it's been my life's work, but designing a graphic for my blog has taken up most of this weekend, and also many months while I worked at Campus Computers.

The header currently adorning my blog is my latest attempt, and it's one I'm finally happy with.

For those that care, the people featured in the header are as follows:
Gunn Rita Dahle-Flesja: idolised mountain bike racer and user of v-brakes
Carly Patterson: Olympic gymnastics champion, my "Religious Views" and middle name muse
Greg Graffin: of Bad Religion fame, also noted academic and life sciences lecturer at UCLA
Tirunesh Dibaba: hugely decorated distance runner, dusts off races the way I do raspberry licorice
Gemma Ward: model and sometimes actress, my skin idol
Ryder Hesjedal: Canadian mountain & road racer, rides for Garmin Chipotle. Love that argyle

Typeface provided by dafont.com - Scriptina and Trashco.

And no, I didn't spend all of this incredible summer's day doing it either. I swam across Ngataringa Bay and at Narrow Neck, and took the Jamis out for a spin around the Bayswater/Devonport area. It's 4:30pm, and I'm thinking of heading back out there.


  1. You have heaps of pictures! Why is Greg Graffin up there? I don't have snazzy software so just made a pattern with my chosen colours from a website.

  2. I thought I'd go all out on the graphic thing since the rest of my blog is so crap! hehe.
    Greg is amazing - I'm a huge Bad Religion fan and it's recently become one of my life's goals to attend one of his lectures at UCLA. It amazes me how one man can so accomplished in so many different fields! =]

  3. eek! I meant "be so accomplished"!!
