Phoenix Suns Star Wars Night

sun-wars
A while back I was asked by my good friend Jeramie McPeek (Vice President, Digital with the Phoenix Suns) to do an illustration to be used on the cover of the in-game program  for their 3rd Star Wars Night (March 21). While a lot of ideas were tossed around as to what we could do, we ultimately decided to have Goran Dragic as Luke Skywalker (with an orange light saber), Eric Bledsoe as Han Solo and a Suns Dancer (Kendal) as Princess Leia.

Gerald Green: Phoenix Suns

Gerald Green: Phoenix SunsGerald Green has been a pleasant surprise for the pleasantly surprising Phoenix Suns this season. I did this illustration at the request of my friend and Phoenix Suns VP of Digital Operations, Jeramie McPeek who also provided me with the source photo that I used.

Baby Lebron

Eric Bledsoe: Phoenix SunsAs a Suns fan, there hasn’t been a lot of excitement surrounding the team since Amare Stoudemire relocated to a New York area code and the Suns tried to fill the void with a number of bad contracts. While this year’s team should once again finish towards the bottom of the pack (in fact, I’ll be upset if they don’t end up with a top 4 pick in next year’s draft), excitement did arrive this summer in a package aptly called ‘Baby Lebron’ aka Eric Bledsoe.

This is my tribute to the young, athletic-freak of a point guard. I can’t wait to watch him this season.

The Dunk

Kevin Johnson

“Little man, you got me little man…that was good little man…that was a nice dunk…don’t bring it in again little man!” – Hakeem Olajuwon

There’s not much to cheer about when it comes to the Phoenix Suns these days so this is to remind Suns fans of the good times…you know, before Robert Sarver, Lon Babby and Lance Blanks.

This is an open edition print available in the Dark Wing Store.

James Harden: Houston Rockets

James Harden: Houston Rockets

James Harden is now a member of the Houston Rockets. To commemorate the change, I’ve decided to update my illustration of my fellow ASU alum even if I was hoping he’d find his way back to the valley and my beloved Suns.

B-Easy

Michael Beasley: Phoenix Suns

My beloved Phoenix Suns have officially started the post-Steve Nash era. When the Canadian who facilitated one of the best and most fun stretches in Phoenix Suns history turned heel and left to join the Los Angeles Lakers, it left a team that just 3 seasons ago played in the Western Conference Finals with a huge void. The Suns made a lot of moves this summer to try and fill that hole. Some I liked (getting Scola on one of the best contracts in the NBA was a nice grab) and some I didn’t (I won’t get into it here but I’m not a fan of Goran Dragic).

However, with all the moves my favorite was bringing in the smooth-scoring lefty known as B*Easy aka Michael Beasley. What can I say? I’m a sucker for players who can score with ease. If we had brought him in pre-Hollywood Steve Nash he could have easily averaged 25 points a night. As is, I see him being a huge part of the revamped Suns offense and I’m excited.

Counter Point: Kendall Marshall

Kendall Marshall: Phoenix Suns

 

With basketball season coming up, I was asked by a friend with the Suns to provide some artwork for their in-game publication, “Free Throw”. I’ve been providing artwork for the Suns since 2007 and up until a game late last season any time my artwork was featured on the cover the Suns would win (now the record stands at 12 wins and 1 loss).

This season brings a lot of change to the Suns organization. The biggest change being the loss of 2-time MVP, Steve Nash. However, with the exit of one of the greatest passers in the history of the game comes the arrival of the greatest passer in this year’s draft, Kendall Marshall. I decided that for the first of what I’m sure will be several Suns pieces during this season I would portray the man who as of right now represents hope for the future.
