Wincustomize User Page Focus: Hippy

Monday, December 27, 2004 by joeKnowledge | Discussion: Community

Hippy is one of the greats of the skinning world. If you look at his skinning achievements you can see that he has done some great work. Take a look at the old school stuff like Futurist Yellow:
Futurist Yellow Icon Set

Very nice. It even has a cursor set included with the icons.

But lets not forget the new stuff that had been coming out from Hippy like:

Then there is Skintendo; a WindowBlinds skin. A skin that you just have to see for yourself. Not only that, it has all of these nice wallpapers made by Hippy that just go great with the WindowBlinds skin. Hippy has, actually, a few wallpapers that goes with his skins for WindowBlinds.

Hey, don't forget that Hippy is also one of those guys at He joined up with MikeB314 (the other Skinplant guy). They got some skins you might want to take a look at on the site to... EXCLUSIVE!!!!

So enjoy Hippy's wonderful user site. He might blog there once in a while, or upload a skin... maybe an update to on of the oldies...hmmmmm??? (Hidden request for a new update for a WindowBlinds skin... any one will do... as long as its old school ).

This story wasn't supposed to be this long and actually is longer. At the link you can read more about Skintendo and some nice matching cartoon/anime wallpapers to go with it.

Hippy is very deserving of such a gesture.

Hippy is a great guy and I think this is a wonderful idea.

We need MORE articles like this to celebrate the contributions of great skinners like Hippy.

I would LOVE to have an article written about me someday *cough*JoeK*cough*cough*... My head could stand to get a little bigger

On a more serious note, I think that Hippy is one of those skinners whom we all look up to, like a big brother; he is there to help on the irc channel anytime you have a question... he is very straight forward and deserving of such praise from this "community" - after all, that is what communities are about... leaders; people who set goals, achieve them and become examples to other would-be leaders.

JoeK is a pioneer on this new land we are calling WC2K, I think that the work he has put into delivering this and many other excellent reports on skinning should be appreciated, your work was/is not in vein... thank you JoeK !

It wasn't an insult or an attempt to "hi-jack" this thread. If you want to take it that way thats your problem, not mine.
