This spring, the Dallas Mavericks commissioned me to paint digital portraits of their whole NBA team for an event in Dallas for VIP season ticket-holders. My portraits were printed 17 feet high and displayed throughout the huge event space. BUT that wasn't all....the team's owner Mark Cuban was so pleased with my work for the party, he requested to use the portraits for marketing and promotional materials during the NBA playoffs, and also commissioned additional drawings for giant banners throughout the stadium! I went down to Dallas to see a playoff game (Mavs Vs. Spurs -- featuring an AMAZING 3-point shot by Vince Carter at the buzzer that gave the Mavs the win!!) and to see my portraits featured throughout the stadium on banners, posters, program player bios, seat fans, and even animated on the jumbotron. It was an honor and a huge thrill to be a part of such an incredible event -- I'm so grateful to Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks for the amazing opportunity!

And to top it all off, the official 2013/2014 Mavericks team poster features my portraits! It was a wild ride, folks -- a wild, wild, wild ride. MFFL!!!!
