    Fenced in Glory Hoops

    College basketball is hands down the best sport to watch and follow. Born and raised in North Carolina, I have always been a UNC fan. Once I came to Syracuse, it quickly became apparent that college basketball was a big deal within the Syracuse community. So I went with the haiku that I believed would capture the interest of the local downtown public, and myself.

    I tried to capture the drama and uncertainty of the moment. The uncertainty of the dunk going in or being blocked or the guy on the bottom right taking the charge -- it all adds to the drama.

    I started with a light pencil sketch, did all the color, then went back over the watercolor with graphite to define the details.
