During the recent playoff run by my beloved Celtics, I did this sketch of Rajon Rondo. Initially, I only meant to do a two page spread with some dynamic figures in mind.
After a few exasperating minutes wrestling with roughs of men in awkward jumping poses that did not make any sense, I settled on the easier route of doing a basketball sketch. I used to do a lot sketches of my NBA heroes back in high school, but I had not done one in years. I was due.
Unfortunately, the team was eliminated from the playoffs two days after drawing this. Sorry, guys. There's always next season.
Update: Rajon Rondo himself shared my sketch on his Facebook & Twitter account. That's purty damn cool.
