Here’s one for basketball and Obama fans. Familiar with Vince Carter’s famous 2000 Olympic dunk on 7’2″ French center Frédéric Weis? According to Wikipedia, “Carter stole the ball, sprinted, took off – legs spread in midair, and hit Weis’s head as he bent over to avoid the collision, before slamming the ball.”  The US took home the gold.  Will Obama?

The illustration was drawn by Ron Ackins.

What’s ridiculously popular yet under-respected at the same time?

Comics.

Reading them will give you a brand new appreciation for illustrators. I can draw basic shapes…expecting anything outside of that is probably going too far. Still, I’ve always wanted to be able to draw well. See…anybody who can hold a pencil can draw, but to do it well is an entirely different story.

One who does it very well is none other than freelance artist Ron Ackins, whose work has been featured in Kicks and XXL magazines, as well as on Nike (soon!) and UndrCrwn tees. Chances are if it was a UndrCrwn shirt you really liked, he did it.

For more of his work and contact information, visit Behance.net/RonAckins. Good…I’m inspired. Not to draw, but to do what I’m good at.
