This was a total dream job from a little while back that I just kept forgetting to post. I was contacted to illustrate a drawing of NBA superstar Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder for a Nike t-shirt. The idea was to show him as an old school weather man, nice plaid jacket matched with basketball shorts, pointing at a map of the United States indicating some of the cities he’ll play where he’ll make it rain jump shots, make some buckets, etc… Kind of a silly idea, but it was a fun project. It took a while from the final to the actual production of the shirt and I think it looks pretty great.
I grew up wearing a lot of illustrated basketball t-shirts so this was always something I hoped to do one day.
They might be hard to track down at a sports store but if you want to own one I managed to find a couple new ones on eBay.
