ABCS OF WRESTLING
Based on how much fun I had with the "ABCs with Peabe", I did another drawing exercise but this time with wrestlers from the 80s to now. This was another fun and easy exercise that turned into a fun new project.
Role: Creative Direction & Illustration.
I grew up loving wrestling and comic books. Those are two things I still dig, so this was just another fun exercise that I was able to do.
Seeing as how the ABCs with Peabe happened first, the process for this was even easier the second time around. The layout and production stayed the same, the only thing that took a little bit of time was drawing all the wrestlers and deciding which wrestler to illustrate for certain letters. It was also difficult to find wrestlers with "Q" and "Z" in their name haha.
It's funny to see the common ground between wrestling and comic books. Drawing these faces (heroes) and heels (villains) and their bigger than life personas was a fun subject to explore.
