Tell us about this piece on the AJ XI and when you first found out about Space Jam.
“I used to draw Michael Jordan any chance I got in grade school – my mom has stacks of work, still.
I was eight years old when [the movie] Space Jam came out. In 1996 I drew MJ in his Tune Squad uniform with chalk that took up my entire driveway, it must have been at least 20 feet tall. Even the local newspaper came to check it out. To this day, we never found a picture that they took of it. So this piece is my redemption for never finding it in the paper.”
