Devin Hester Sketch – Superbowl BluesBy
February 2007, Chicago fan’s flew flags, and prepared for a long anticpated Superbowl. Party preparations, excitement was in the air like the blizzard of 1967 &1979.
The city stopped during those snow storms. Last year, Bears Fan’s stopped at any chance they could to discuss the upcoming game, all over the city, Monster’s of the Midway. The Art Institute Lion’s doned the Chicago Bears Helmet’s.
92 yards for a touchdown at Superbowl XLI, we sat with racing hearts and sweaty palms, with anticipation of a Superbowl celebration. Well, we all know how it ended, and as the Superbowl weekend kicks into gear, I decided to draw a tribute to a player that has held his own, and held the ball for:
- Most touchdown returns in a season – (6) (2006, 2007)
- Most touchdowns kick and punt returns in a season – (6) (2007)
- Most touchdown returns as a rookie (6) – (2006)
- Most touchdown returns in one game (2)** – Against St. Louis on 12/11/2006 and Denver Broncos on 11/25/07
As the weekend get’s underway, this sketch, done with a General’s Woodless Graphite HB, merging three of Devin’s famous poses into one 18 x 18 sketch, it will be a Bear’s Superbowl at heart!
Stay tuned for the finish product!.
