Over the past 5 years or so, I have noticed countless artist drawing some of the greatest athletes on earth. Some of the Art work is created because the artist is a fan of the athlete, and some are made because players want art work of themselves.
Recently, I saw posted on twitter the artwork of one of my friends, T.J. Grier, on twitter. He had posted the photo and tagged the athlete as well. T.J. has been doing this for awhile now, and I think his work is some of the best artwork I’ve seen.
There are other artist drawing athletes and here are some of the artwork they have drawn.

The great thing about Sports art is that it shows us all that even you don’t play the sport, you can always bring something to it.
