The Ninja Turtles definitely had a big role to play in my life, introducing me to pizza, ninjas and the names of classical artists. :D I'm really loving the new Nickelodeon reboot of the series too, I actually do prefer it to the old series. I was sceptical when watching the first episode and I thought it looked much too different for me to like but by the end of it, I was hooked. My favourite character is Michelangelo, he's so funny. :D

My husband is a devout Leonardo fan though, through the old series and this new one. When he got himself a new 15in MacBook, he immediately asked for a bespoke Leonardo case for his MacBook. He wanted something very minimalist and subtle so big full body case complete with shell and weapons and turtle limbs were out of the question. :p
I decided to go with a stealthy-inspired design, them being ninjas and all. I thought it would be cool to have a black case and just a very subtle highlight of Leonardo's face silhoutte, and of course emphasise his blue eye mask. I also made his eyes white as an homage to the new series when they're in 'fight' mode.
My husband requested Swell Stitch Monster on the back:
Here's a close up of Leonardo:
After creating the case, I decided to use the design to create a Mac desktop wallpaper for myself, but first changing it to Michelangelo:
