Thanks to my dad, we grew up huge Muhammad Ali fans. As little kids we knew about him and his amazing personality and throughout the years we have created about a dozen pieces of Artwork showcasing the legend. They were always our favorite to work on. In 1997 thanks to an Etch A Sketch that George created we were fortunate enough to meet Ali. It was difficult for him to speak but his eyes lit up when he saw the Etch. He signed a pair of boxing gloves for us and the Etch A Sketch and even surprised us with some magic tricks. It was a moment we will never forget.
Here are a few of our pieces of artwork throughout the years including some pieces that we created back when we were in High School.
Here is a piece below that is still in progress. It's done with acrylic paint on a 4 foot by 6 foot wood board.
Here's George's Original Ali Etch that Muhammad signed and was amazed by.
George's latest Etch A Sketch below is probably our favorite Etch of all time and just like Ali it is One Of A Kind and completely Original. From the detailed line work of the Etch we have created some limited edition silk screen prints and even a limited edition run of T shirts.
Here is an example of the silk screen prints we created.
Our new Limited Edition shirts are now available for a very short time. Click on the shirt to order yours before they are gone for good.

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.
