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.
