Athletes and musicians have always been a favorite subject for me. I started sketching them when I was very young and have found ways to always trip back into it, even while working in other industries. As soon as it was an option to do it full-time, that is all I focused on.
The portraits are sketched on paper using ink pens and then brought into Adobe Photoshop to add colors and effects. The file can be printed on stretched canvas, t-shirts, coffee mugs, pillow cases, and basically anything that you would like to print it on. Most of the portraits have been done for www.500level.com which has the legal rights to the athletes used but this style can be replicated for other subjects as well.
