Battle of the Badges
I probably should have blogged about this before the event instead of after, but whatever. This is a drawing I did for an event in San Jose called "The Battle of the Badges". It was a cop vs cop fight night in everything from boxing and kickboxing to mixed martial arts. Departments from all over the Bay Area came to participate.
This was the design I did for the flyer and the t-shirt (of which many were sold), the proceeds from this event went to the California Narcotic Officers Association. I was thinking of this as kind of an homage to one of my idols (Frank Miller) and originally had done the whole thing in black and white, with the only color being red on one of the boxers gloves. But, the powers that be decided they needed more color in order to sell the t-shirts, so more color was added. The design was well received, the t-shirt popular and a good time had by all. What more could anyone ask for?
