There is Jedi vs. Sith, G.I. Joe vs. Cobra, Alies vs. Axis Powers, and then there are Nerds vs Jocks. It’s an old rivalry that some insist on, and others try to set aside. I am pretty sure, Fantasy football is the NERDIEST fucking thing that has ever, and will ever exist; it is clear that these two groups have completely merged, and formed nerdy-jock offspring. While there be some die hards on both extremes of the scale, many of my nerdy friends have both been athletic and into sports in some way, the two former waring sides have been at peace for some time. One reason we are drawn to sports figures is because they are the human approximation of our super hero legends. They are those phycical specimens who transcend normal human limits. And of course, certain athletes do tend to exemplify the ideal active human physique, and that works great as a life drawing reference.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Athlete.

All art work is due on Thursday, 11.27.14 Submissions will be published the following Friday, 11.28.14
