MaryVictix Desktops

mary-victrix-desktop-detail.jpgSome time ago I designed a desktop wallpaper for the Knights of Lepanto and Mary Victrix. I am now making it available in different sizes for both PC and Mac.

I originally designed it for a Mac cinema display (letterbox) with a nice dark area for the icons on the right. I have adapted the original to several sizes of the cinema display for the PC with the icon space on the left, and I have further cropped it for several sizes of the standard apsect ratio. It does not look as good in the standard ratio, but so be it. (The space for the icons had to be cropped out.)

The artifacts pictured in the wallpaper are all significant. Any thoughts? All feedback will be appreciated. Click on the thumbnail and right click to “save image as”.

Battle Chic?


“It’s lots of fun. Very, very addictive,” Gardiner said.

Ceramic chain mail art? Hmm. The venerable invention of the ancient armorers is now considered a craft, as in artsy-fartsy kind of craft. To each his own.

I can appreciate the beauty and versatility of the wonder material, strong as steel, yet supple as cloth. So its being put to new uses that are marketable. I guess this one I can appreciate, a t-shirt. Nice.

Come on, Knights and Squires of Lepanto! Lets have some ideas. Lets get the coifs and halburks going.

I’ve been thinking of making a chain mail rosary. Don’t laugh. It will work. You’ll see.
