Graphic a Day in May 2012 coming!

NOTE: All 31 slots are now filled!

Thank you again for your great Richard Armitage pictures and quotes for our previous project. Have you ever noticed how things that are fun or tasty seem to be unhealthy? Well I have to confess that collaborating with you is so enjoyable it should be fattening, LOL!

Last year, I created a Graphic a Day in May. Let’s do it again! Since I’m busier than last year, I’m going to solicit your images on this blog instead of using the Picture of the Day at RichardArmitageNet.Com.  I’ll be creating our graphics in bulk closer to the beginning of the month and scheduling them daily.

However, if you didn’t know, you can always request a Picture of the Day to be displayed on RichardArmitageNet.Com for any special event or for no reason at all. All you need to do is send an email as explained on RichardArmitageNet.Com.

Also, RichardArmitageNet.Com is an Amazon Associate. If you order anything from Amazon UK or US through their links, a commission will be donated to one of Richard Armitage’s favorite charities.  ♥  Here’s more information:

Let’s get started, shall we? Here’s a Guy of Gisborne siggie I created last year:

G Love

If  you would be so kind again, I’d appreciate it if you would submit a screencap of Richard Armitage or one of his characters. As an option, it would also be fun if you would include a link to a song to which I can listen while I work. I love to experiment and it will be interesting to see if my thought processes are affected by the music. ♪ ♫ ♫ ♪ ♫

The first 31 submissions will have a graphic created. The higher the quality of the image, the easier it is to work with. I’ll be making siggies, wallpapers and maybe avatars.

Here’s the criteria:

1. Submit one image of a Richard Armitage character or the man himself. Post the link in the comments section below. You can link from your favorite website such as RichardArmitageNet.Com or your own stash on photobucket, imageshack, etc.

2. (Optional) Link to a song you think conveys a certain mood. This link can be to YouTube, SoundCloud, etc. Please list the name of the song in case it’s blocked in my country.

Here’s an example:

If you haven’t played before, please feel free to join in! As the Vicar of Dibley said, “All comers, all welcome!” 😉

Thanks in advance and I’ll see you tomorrow. 😀


P.S. The YouTube videos are automatically embedding so I am manually changing them to links so the page doesn’t take forever to scroll and load.  😀

  1. ItsJSforMe says:

    Yay!!! It’s back!!! I *discovered* RA in late April of last year, and I stumbled onto this blog during last year’s Graphic a Day in May. I really enjoyed it! I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with this year!

    My chosen pic is a promo from Spooks series 7. ♥Love♥ Lucas in his pea coat!!

    I do not have a song choice, as you and I have already figured out that our tastes in music are like oil and water. Lmao (Hugs)

    • bccmee says:

      @ItsJSforMe: Wow, that is a lovely high-res picture of Lucas North. Mmm, I agree about that pea coat. LOL re: our differing tastes in music. Hmmm, I’ve been listening to a lot of Damien Rice so let’s see how that suits.

      Thanks for your contribution! You are #1 in the queue although I may not be posting in order. 😀

    • Snicker's Mom says:

      I’m surprised you didn’t submit JS. 😉

  2. Emma says:

    This sounds like fun! I love that you’ve requested music too.
    Here’s a pic of Richard:
    And “Forget Me Not” by The Civil Wars:

    Thanks for letting us contribute. Have a great day!

    • bccmee says:

      @Emma: I think it’s going to be fun from the 1st through the 31st! Thanks so much for your contributions. I’ve not heard this music group before. 😀

      You are #2 in the queue.

    • Judit says:

      His ears are very elfin-like on this photo,don’t you think? Lovely!

  3. magwi says:

    Oh, I missed out on this last year. Another fabby idea bccmee. ☺

    Difficult to choose a pic but settled on this one, John Porter of course!

    And my choice of song is one of my all time favourites, Habanera from Bizet’s Carmen. Hope you enjoy it.

    • bccmee says:

      @magwi: Yay for John Porter! Wow interesting music choice. I really enjoy it when I go to the opera but I have to confess I’ve not seen that movie from 1984.

      You are #3 in the queue. 😀

      • magwi says:

        3rd in queue. Yay! Well done me.

        As I say, I love this song…where Carmen explains how love cannot be tamed.

        “The bird you thought you had caught
        beat its wings and flew away …
        love stays away, you wait and wait;
        when least expected, there it is!”

  4. This thing shot me off twice so I imagine my previous submission is gone with the wind. Again, with no further delay here I go: Picture from Lucas North (have I mentioned I love Lucas?)

    and song “Bring me to life” — Evanescence

    • bccmee says:

      @Ana Cristina: Thanks for your persistence! I checked my spam filter and you had not gotten stuck there so I’m not sure where your original comments landed, LOL! Maybe New Zealand. 😉

      You are #4 in the queue. 😀

  5. Luciana says:

    This sounds exciting… again…LOL

    Here are two options for photos:

    Every time I listen to this song, I remember RA… 😉
    (Too marvelous for words – Diana Krall)

  6. Ania says:

    I’m glad, because it looks like May this year will be very exciting.:) Here is my suggestion, Lucas North:
    And a song which is not too new, but it seems to me that fits as an answer to your challenge 😉 Song: „Anything” by Edyta Górniak

    • bccmee says:

      @Ania: Wow, thanks for your lovely large luscious Lucas picture! 😀 I found another video of your song since for some reason that link was blocked in the US. So I’m glad you gave me the name of music!

      You are #7 in the queue. 😀

      • Ania says:

        oh I’m sorry to hear that the link has been blocked, but I’m glad that you found another video, because you know ♫ ♪ … I would do anything for you anything anything … ♫ ♪
        I’m sorry I cannot stop LOL!

  7. april73 says:

    Here is my proposition :

    I’m sorry Bccmee, but I cannot propose a Youtube video because this site is blocked at work. 😦

  8. judiang says:

    YAY! I was looking forward to this. 🙂

    Here is my photo of Guy (naturally)

    Here is the music, My Immortal by Evanescence (surprised ya, eh?)

  9. It’s May again! I cannot believe one year has passed, but it has!
    As you can imagine, my first choice is Guy:

    I love the idea of the song for inspiration.
    Here you are:
    Enjoy yourself!

  10. Elaine says:

    Yippee, more fun!

    My choice is Guy as well ! I’ve chosen an image from episode 10 , season 2, rh210 086, here’s the link:

    And I think Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” is great to music for working:

  11. Ooohhh, I can’t miss this one !! 🙂

    here’s my submition :
    And the song inspiration :

    Can I be #19 in th queue ? *sheepish look* because May 19th is my birthday and I’d love to see what you’ve done with this picture on that day 🙂

  12. Kathleen says:

    Looked at what has been submitted so far and there is no N&S so here we go:

    And the song, Sting’s Mad About You. It has a line in it “Never in my life have I felt more alone than I do now”. Maybe John is feeling a like that looking out the window at Margaret.

    The song on YouTube:

    Hope this helps!

    • bccmee says:

      @Kathleen: I love that dreamy North & South screencap and I’ve always wondered whose tongue prints are on the window glass. Are they on the inside or the outside? 😉 That’s a great choice of song and thanks for pointing out the lyrics!

      You are #13 in the queue. 😀

    • bccmee says:

      @Snicker’s Mom: Ah the bearded Richard Armitage rears his lovely head, LOL! Thanks for the song and image.

      You are #14 in the queue. 😀

  13. Teuchter says:

    Another great project Bccmee!! Hope I’m in time to join in. My choice of picture is Richard as Richard. Those eyes get me every time 🙂
    I hope you like my choice of video from YT. I love Lara Fabian and the lyrics are wonderful too!!

    • bccmee says:

      @Teuchter: That’s a huge picture of Richard Armitage at the Strike Back premiere, thanks! And I’m looking forward to checking out this song!

      You are #15 in the queue. 😀

  14. smitkit says:

    Hi B, can’t believe it’s a year since the Graphic A Day In May!
    Here’s my suggestion –

    Can’t think of a song, so I’ll leave that to you!

    • bccmee says:

      @smitkit: Ah the lovely John Porter is music to my eyes, LOL! Thanks so much for your contribution. Where has that year gone anyway? Hope the next 7 months pass quickly too.

      You are #17 in the queue. 😀

      • smitkit says:

        Oh thanks B. I was ‘toying’ with Sir Guy (so to speak), but decided to go with JP.

        Yes, only 7 months to wait for the Hobbit – remember when it was over two years! Oh, and yesterday (30th) was the sixth anniversary of the first broadcast of the Impressionists in the UK – where’s that time gone?!

  15. beengizzied says:

    Well …. here’s Ricky.
    And the song I’m picking for your listening pleasure is Bathtime by Tindersticks

    • bccmee says:

      @beengizzied: A worthy choice. Black leather and a white scarf. Thanks for the funky song and image. Can’t wait to see what comes out of this!

      You are #18 in the queue. 😀

  16. Pospíšková Irena says:

    Hi Bccmee,
    I bring John
    and one of my favourite “mood correcting” songs – it is What is love by Haddaway I wonder how much of this arises, because your work never ceases to amaze me and entertain me. So have a nice day!

  17. Holliday says:

    This is my first attempt at this, so hopefully I did it right. Every time I see this picture it just cracks me up because he looks like he’s having way too much fun.
    As for the song the only one that came to mind was “You Should Be Dancing” by the Bee Gees

  18. IngeD3 says:

    Oh, this is going to be such a wonderful month! Thanks for another great collaboration project, B!
    I can’t get enough of this picture:

    And this is the first song that it made me think of:

    • bccmee says:

      @IngeD3: Ah the beard! ♥ Thank you for that. I am very excited about this project and have finished 3 graphics so far. Your video is blocked in my country but luckily the title is visible so I was able to find an available version.

      You are #21 in the queue. 😀

    • Mezz says:

      IngeD3, my son introduced me to Nick Cave’s music. I’m not too keen on a lot of his stuff, it’s quite dark, but I love this song, and the vid is beautiful. 🙂

  19. magwi says:

    You’ve done something with my suggestion already? My goodness you’re dedicated!. Thanks bccmee. I am so excited and looking foward to seeing the final results. ♥x♥

  20. magwi says:

    PS Glad you liked my song choice.

  21. trlibhart says:

    Okay, here is my picture:

    and my song is Somebody that I Used to Know by Gotye

    Hope the video works for you!!! 🙂

  22. Hi Bccmee,
    I know I’m late, but I’ve been offline all day. So in case this makes your list, here are my choices:

    1) The delectable Harry Kennedy (I love him even with that horizontal striped sweater on him. Ha!):

    2) Song choice (I have to go with an angieklong vid on this one):
    When Harry Met Gerri : A Vicar of Dibley Fanvid (Richard Armitage)

    Cheers! Grati ;->

    • bccmee says:

      @Gratiana: Aha, you’ve contributed our first Harry Kennedy screencap. He’s still a favorite Richard Armitage character of mine! ♥

      You are #23 in the queue. 😀

  23. pamsingh says:

    Here’s the image:

    And the song choice is “Unforgettable” by Nat King Cole which is so apt seeing how RA has taken up permanent residence in my brain:

  24. Mezz says:

    I hope I’m not too late! Here’s my pic submission, I thought it was time to give Claude some love!
    I can’t think of a song at the moment so can I get back to you with one? Thanks! 🙂

  25. jazzbaby1 says:

    Graphic is this one:

    The song is “Hot Hot Papa” by David Wilcox and you can find that on youtube.

    Thanks for another awesome project, B!

  26. mariana says:

    Wondeful idea bccmee!
    Here is the graphic:
    I’m sure you’ll find a beautiful song.
    Thanks for this beautiful project!

  27. Judit says:

    Hi Bee! Screencap from my beloved Cbeebies:
    Song: “Sunshine” by Gabrielle. Just because RA IS the sunshine in my winter. 🙂

  28. bccmee says:

    Thank you for your contributions! All 31 slots are now filled. Please check back throughout the month as I will be posting out of order.
