Hi Everybody,

I'm looking for someone to do a better job of my current sig. I have little talent in that regard and am unhappy with the job I did. What I was going for was Sidney Crosby (and the Penguins) in the moments after losing the Stanley Cup Final in 2008 juxtaposing the sheer joy of winning only a year later in 2009. Personally, I love the caption "What a difference a year makes", however, if you are interested in changing it, I'm open to everything. Remember the Crosby commercial where he steps out of the picture and says "I never want to be in this picture again..." (That would be great with Kes crying or something). As a Canucks fan this is obviously what we are going for, so I think it deserves a job well done.

Credits will most definitely be given.

Thanks for your consideration.

Great job. As much as I like Crosby my sig needs to be Canucks related! Thanks though

I'm not really interested in Sidney Crosby per se, more the far that the Penguins lost in the finals and then won the next season. Great job, sick sig, though. Like, maybe without the Sidney Crosby this could be what I was looking for. I know that the phrase 'What a difference a year makes' is pretty lengthy for a sig...

Ok so I think I get what you want, you want the quote What a difference a year makes, but with the Canucks after last years loss?

Sorry if I rambled a bit... but I had two ideas, whichever is a) easier and B) what you think is a better idea - works for me.

1. A better job of my current signature... (See below, obviously) I really want to get that misery to happiness (for the Penguins) with the line "What a difference a year makes" in it

OR

2. A picture of the Canucks loss, of Kesler crying, or any one of them hunched over, with the tagline "I never want to be in this picture again" or something along those lines, if thats too long.

You see what I'm going for? Thanks!

Hey man may I ask which program you use? I am wanting to make a sick Tiger Woods desktop background but the program I use (Pixelmator) doesn't seem to cooperate well with me.
