The requested URL /images/thumbs/wallpaper/evav_paper.1280.jpg was not found on this server.

1280 and 1024 don't appear to be working.

Wow, alright...

I now take back any mean thing I may have said about Tim Buckley or Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
I can't recall saying anything mean, but I say mean things all the time.. so if anyone can find quotes, I will gladly take them back.

Someone wanna call Buckley up to do one of Amanda?

Hate him or love him, there's no denying that Tim's a helluva an artist. Thanks to him for these gorgeous pics.

Do the caricatures resemble the actual folks? Does Evil have a moustache and bape have wicked lambchops? Sure would be cool to see pics of the people behinds the scenes one of these days. We all know what Steve from shacknews and blue from bluesnews look like (even Redwood from the good ol' days!).

Yep, we all actually had to send in reference photos, so they're definitely made after us.

I'm sorry, but as much as I love Evil Avatar and all its editors, I still feel that Buckley's work is tripe. I just don't think that lining up crude caricatures and labeling them makes Buckley a helluva artist. Send me the reference photos and I'll whip up something decent, and for free too!

You could always just download the 1024x768 version, use that as the background, choose "center" and make your desktop black.

Yep, Evil has a moustache, and sometimes a goat-tee. When I saw him last week he had made sure to make himself look like the picture.

There is way more than that. But I shant digress, or at least not in this thread. Do a search on the forum for 'Tim Buckely' and see what comes up. Should fill you in.

I'm actually surprised that TrackZero (or was it thecrazyD) hasn't gone completely bonkers due to Buckley's involvement in the wallpaper. Or maybe they did and are writhing in a foaming mass on their carpet as we speak...

That's not a bad call. They like EvAv, right? They gave us some positive mention before; maybe they're willing to do it.

Kefkataran
04-06-2007, 04:53 PM
Without giving any details since I personally wasn't involved in the behind-the-scenes stuff here, I think we originally wanted to get Gabe and Tycho to do it, but they had a bigger fee that we just couldn't justify at the time. I'd love to see them do some art for us in the future though. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed!

Wow, great wallpaper. I don't care what anyone thinks about Buckley, I happen to be a big fan of his art and CAD. I do have one gripe though, why doesn't Fitty have the Banhammer hefted on his shoulder? That would have been the icing on the cake.

Sounds like Buckley was cheaper/wasn't busy. Which is totally understandable.

I love Evil Avatar, but your faces on my desktop? staring at me? Ridiculous.
