Thanks everyone!

 

Up next is the first full-body mascot in the group, because the head alone would look quite odd.

Maybe add the old M on to the hat?

Hat was too small, but the sweater works and added a football. I had already intended on him being in a "Heisman" pose.

Something about the face makes me think this old coot needs a tattoo.  Maybe a tattoo on one arm with an anchor and an M instead of the sweater.

I don't know if you remember the NFL Huddles mascots from the mid 80's, but the Packers' Huddle guy had an apron and some drawings had him carrying a string of sausage, subtly referencing the meat packing roots of the name.

I have the whole set that I bought from Avon (believe it or not!). Now just have to find it somewhere in my house?

Really hoping you do a Bills one soon. 

 

 

So for the Buffalo Bills I drew up this Buffalo Bill Cody mascot first. Then I got to thinking about how that is disconnected with most of their imagery, so I used the Cody image to create a buffalo mascot too. Not sure which one I like better though.

I get the idea of the Cody logo, but the blue Buffalo is too good not to use.

Not sure if the Navy or Royal works better here.

You have to go Navy don't you as that's cowboys color?

It is, but there is a sizable camp of people that believe that the Cowboys should choose between navy and royal since they use navy for their dark uni and royal for their white.

Wow, hettinger!...I'm gonna echo everyone's comments in saying... great idea for a series, fantastic work, and keep it coming please.

You've captured Evans' style perfectly...the gleam in the eye, the expressions, the hats/caps, and the line weight...

(Not an easy thing to do because I imagine Evans worked in brush and ink, and I'm guessing you're creating these lines with a vector tool?...)

Anyway, great work and looking forward to seeing the rest!
