Character Design / Illustration
Athlete Objects is simply Athletes drawn as objects, based on their name or nickname, my childhood memories and any other interesting internet tidbits. From famous to infamous, amazing or obscure, these little ills are part fact and part poking fun. I have been tinkering with this personal project for a long time.
In 2013, the fellas over at ESPN Playbook caught wind and commissioned 3 character illustrations of current NBA athletes 'King' James, 'The Durantula' and of course Chicago's very own Derrick 'Rose'.
