Ever since I was in middle school in 1997 or 1998 I can remember VHS taping all of the Lakers games. I used to watch them over and over just to study Kobe's moves and try to emulate him in open gym or practice the next day. Kobe has always been a favorite of ours and over the years my brother George and I have loved to paint and draw him. We have done 10-12 paintings and drawings over the past 20 years staying up late watching the west coast games while drawing on the living room floor. With this being his last game in Cleveland I wanted to share a few pieces of art we have had fun creating over the years. Also, stay tuned for George's newest Etch a Sketch that will feature the Mamba. Let us know what you think and make sure you check out our art section to see the two Kobe pieces we have available. One an Original Matted Print and one from one of my favorite photographs that I have taken. https://gvartwork.com/collections/artwork
This was a photograph I took while I was lucky enough to be sitting court side while taking photos for a basketball magazine. It was an experience I will never forget and one major thing on my bucket list I was able to cross off.
This is one of my favorite pieces to date and the Original hangs in my office. This print is also available as a matted print on our site as well.
As mentioned, George has begun a brand new Kobe Bryant Etch A Sketch as a tribute. It is not completed for tonights game but we will keep you posted when the piece is finally finished. Here is a sneak peek below.
