George 'The ICEMAN' Gervin

Concept Poster in collaboration with Sean Henry

Words from Chad Trutt
I've always like to watch George Gervin do his patented finger-roll. He makes it seems so effortless the way the ball rolls off his fingers tips. I asked one of my inner circle friends, Sean Henry, if he would like to collaborate on this piece. Sean drew out the picture of Gervin and sent it to me. I vectorized it and created the background with suggestions from Sean. We chose the background and the ball to represent cold and ice. Gervin was call 'The ICEMAN' because of his cool demeanor on the court.

Here are the sketches and concepts that lead up to our final design
