New Artwork inspired by the BC Lions

Hi everyone! In recognition of the Lions 6th Grey Cup last season, I decided to create a piece of artwork to celebrate their proud history. It is a pencil drawing. I hope you like it.

Image

Here is my description of the artwork:

"THE LIONS' ROAR"

This drawing was inspired by the proud history of the BC Lions and their strong fanbase. The piece captures the feeling of being a BC Lions fan as fans walk to BC Place on gameday. Ghosted in the sky above the stadium are six of the many great players that have captured the hearts of Lions' fans since their inaugural season in 1954. From left to right: Joe Kapp, Willie Fleming, Merv Fernandez, Lui Passaglia, Sean Millington and Geroy Simon. Each of these players has won atleast 1 Grey Cup as a Lion and represent each of the Lions' 6 Grey Cup winning seasons. Fan jersey numbers pay tribute to these players as well as Jim Young, Doug Flutie, Travis Lulay, Paul McCallum, Darren Flutie, Jason Clermont, Brent Johnson, Norm Fieldgate, By Bailey, Alan Wilson, Jamie Taras, Ted Gerela, Bill Munsey, Dave Dickenson, Cory Philpot, Larry Crawford, Barron Miles, Damon Allen, James Parker, Ray Alexander and Ryan Phillips. Ghosted in the sky behind Joe Kapp and Willie Fleming is a game scene from Empire Stadium where the Lions played from 1954 to 1982 before moving to BC Place.

Great stuff!


Sports can be a peculiar thing. When partaking in fiction, like a book or movie, we adopt a "Willing Suspension of Disbelief" for enjoyment's sake. There's a similar force at work in sports: "Willing Suspension of Rationality". If you doubt this, listen to any conversation between rival team fans. You even see it among fans of the same team. Fans argue over who's the better QB or goalie, and selectively cite stats that support their views while ignoring those that don't.

Thanks David! It was so hard to choose just 6! I wanted all 6 cups to be covered though.
