Allen Iverson Illustration/Toy Design from the All Star Vinyl series I worked on for Upper Deck, Mark Irwin
Art Directed. Had great fun designing this figure, alot of it just in the research. Don't really follow sports, so with each assignment like this I'd try to get a handle on the players personality, where they were hard to get a bead on (Dwayne Wade) the work suffered a bit. Iverson is a really interesting guy though, a great interview, and to whatever degree I managed to capture him, he had a clear persona to aim for. Heh, he did get traded after I'd completed 3 Illo's with him in a Sixers jersey, so re-doing those was less than fun.
