Of Mascots and Melees

Awhile back, I was contacted by a guy who said he was interested in having me redesign the mascot for a sports talk radio show. I haven’t heard back from him, so I guess they lost interest. It reminded me of my early days when I did a lot of college mascot work for merchandising companies and universities, though, and how much I enjoyed that kind of work.

It wasn’t the sports aspect (I’m not exactly what you’d call a huge fan of any team or sport), but the fun things I got to draw the characters doing. Lots of action and cartoon violence kinda stuff. You know, the kind where anvils, being tied to train tracks, and things marked “ACME” come into play quite often.

So- now that my doodling pen is fired up for some sports mascot action but has been put on standby- what’s a guy to do????

    Shouldn’t the hog be angry that they call footballs pigskins?

    Pigs are known for their passionate self-hatred and nihilistic senses of humor.
