I absolutely loved the 2008 season mainly for one reason; Shonn Greene. He ran over and lifted would be tacklers straight off their feet. He was so much fun to watch and his story of determination was very inspiring as well. This was going to be my first ‘feature’ piece of a semi-current player. Somewhere about three-quarters of the way into this drawing, something happened that changed what I would do with future pieces. I discovered while working on Shonn’s helmet in the lower right image, I could place whatever I wanted in the reflection. I opted for trying to capture the pressbox at Kinnick to kind of personalize where he may have been during that run; I loved it.  I’m going to try to capture something in reflections that customers can look for in my work, although I still have to point it out to a lot of people. This was also the beginning of my involvement in fundraising as I was happy to donate the signed original to the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital charity golf tournament.

Price: from $25.00
