I am submitting my entry into Granular's First Birthday contest and I first want to say a big thanks to Geminiguy for his permission to incorporate his 'grey swoop' design I wanted to use as a background for my entry (If the design wins, I'll split the winnings with you!)
I am truly excited to have a part in this great and artistic community, and to have the opportunity to display some of my artwork for an appreciative and honest audience, while learning from all of you in the process. Not to mention that we're also using the very 'BEST' Linux distribution available today. I'm sure you'd all agree with that.
One other thing: I came up with a catch phrase (and I hope like heck that it wasn't plagiarized somewhere!) that I added to the banner because it really felt right right for some reason, and I'd like to get your feedback on it:
"Moving at the speed of...'wow.'"
Maybe not the most original choice of words ever, and perhaps maybe even a little play on the "The 'Wow' starts now"? For that matter, as far as I'm concerned, the 'real' 'Wow' started a year ago, and is celebrating it's first birthday. Happy Birthday Granular!
With that said, let me step down off the 'virtual soap box', wrap my comments up, and say: here's to everyone in the Granular community and may be the best entry win!
Sincerely, Roger Nurick
