In addition to my writing stories and essays about Richard Armitage, I also like to create graphics. Though I am no artist, it is fun to play around with Photoshop (image manip) and Powerpoint (layering) to create these collages/wallpapers. So what follows are some graphics that I have shared elsewhere on Facebook and maybe Twitter, but not here on my blog yet. The dates indicate when I published the graphic elsewhere–working backwards in time. Enjoy!

20 graphics listed above–in addition to the dozens/hundreds of other graphics I have already shared in posts! Whew! I guess that I have been busy this past year. And I thought that this might be a short post. Not a chance! Ha!
Nota Bene: Original image credits are listed on each graphic and in the video. In general, images are usually courtesy of www.RichardArmitageNet.com
I love all these graphics. LOL! How lucky is Lady Heidi. I´ll give everything to change that place with her .OMG! There´s no fall with Richard! Indeed!Those biceps and stubble … *swoon* thud*. Sir Guy, my eyes burn too when see yours. Oh, very appropriated quotes. You done well,Grati.
Thanks for your very kind note! Richard as Sir Guy–as any of his character portrayals or himself–melts my heart, too. Sighhhhh!
Cheers! Grati ;->
Great graphics, Grati! All of them are sooo beautiful ♥, but at the moment the two of them the most appeal to my heart. Namely, majestic Thorin (Thorin’s Legacy of his people) and cuddly John Standring.
Thanks for your very nice note about my graphics.
Richard Armitage has also astounded me with his Thorin Oakenshield portrayal! His ferocity and majestic bearing command the screen when he is on it–which is most of the time. I have greatly admired Mr. Armitage’s acting and storytelling talents since I first laid eyes on him portraying John Thornton in in North & South (2004) when I rented its dvd in 2010. But RA’s Thorin is superb!
And in Mr. Armitage’s portrayal of John Standring, he is such a big bear of a man–honorable, steadfast, kind, and loving–that you want every good thing to come his way. And yes, cuddling will be involved. Giggles!
Cheers! Grati ;->
You’ve been busy! Thanks for the link.
Hi Serv, Yes. They add up. Ha! You’re welcome about the link to your essay. It’s great! Cheers! Grati ;->
