Photoshoppers? Designers? Frustrated scribblers? Time for a contest!

Yesterday, @adriangstewart posted a pic on twitter that was a bit of an eye-opener:


He indicated, “Here is an evolution of the Enertia we received today from Timothy Wells a graphic designer out of Indiana.”  Very nice work, Mr. Wells. I think that it may be this Mr. Wells, but I don’t guarantee it.  He looks and sounds like someone who might get jazzed up about re-designing the Enertia: “maintains the position of Graphics Designer for Faulkner Strategies where he uses his computer graphics skills and Purdue education to design and Create digital and printed materials.”  Anyway, he’s got a nice eye for details and you have to love those fenders.

I began to wonder if other people have been playing around with the Enertia design, and how far they’ve taken it.

Have you developed a chopper version of the Enertia?  Have you flexed your Adobe Photoshop muscles and inserted an Enertia where before, only a common motorcycle existed?  No?  Well, then, get busy!

Here are some rather obvious iconic motorcycle images that may give you some ideas:


Steve McQueen in “The Great Escape.”


Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper in “Easy Rider”


The governor of California in “Terminator 2 – Judgment Day”

And it doesn’t have to be a scene from a movie.  You could take your inspiration from elsewhere:


Extra points if you can somehow put Blondie’s Deborah Harry in there . . . somewhere.

If you need some more inspiration, go to

Submit your files to brammofan at  Winner gets a prominent mention and the warm feeling of knowing that his or her image will be viewed by millions thousands many people over the course of time.  It may lead to bigger and better things for you.  It could be your first step toward notoriety and, dare I say it, success.  How long has it been since you turned to the person next to you and said, “I am currently enjoying the adoration of the masses”?  I wager it’s been over a week, at least.  It is time for a change.

Or maybe you worked your butt off as an intern at an over-hyped advertising agency in the middle of nowhere.  They unilaterally declared that your internship was over and sent you packing.  The sense of bitterness and frustration wells up inside of you.  Suddenly, you see two roads diverging.  The well-worn path leads to further frustration and a final destination of disgruntlement.  The road less taken includes much more amusing alternatives and could be that stepping stone to ubiquity.

Now, make a difference. Go forth and photoshop.
