I usually don't post freelance stuff here, because the whole point of the blog is to force myself to do extracurricular work, but I happen to be overly proud of this piece I did for WWE.
I don't usually get hired to do finished illustrations, so it was terribly exciting to really open up and see what I could do. As much of a milestone as this was for me, I had to sit on the art for six months when the Undertaker was temporarily out of action. The shirt very nearly got shelved altogether, and it was well within the realm of the non-disclosure I signed. (Something about sitting in an HR office under a poster of a screaming, blood-soaked Cena makes you sign those standard legal documents with a little more solemnity.)
Anyway, The Undertaker made his heavily-hyped return to Monday Night Raw this week, and lo and behold there's the shirt for sale on WWE's website. I might have to order one for every day of the week.
