From The Vault - Boulder Buffalos 1998

I did this piece of art for an old boss of mine back in 1998. He was part of a ping pong team and was looking for a t-shirt design for his team.

So, I made the biggest, baddest, buffalo-ist ping pong player I could think of.

This piece, like all the pieces I did in the nineties, was all done by hand. It was first penciled and inked by hand, then used computer lettering printed out for the logos. I then cut those out and actually pasted them right on the original art work. Finally I'd have the art shot on a photostat machine so the image was transferred to a slick, photo-like, paper and I painted the whole thing with my trusty old airbrush.

It is good to know, if all the computers fail, I can still do work like this. Of course, I don't think anyone makes photostats anymore. But, I'm sure I'd figure something out.

Too bad McNabb got rid of the stat machine!

Yeah, but even if he had the machine do they still make the chemicals and supplies for it?
