This is a pastel drawing of Arizona State University's star football player for their team, the Sun Devils. Manny Wilkins is the Starting Quarterback and his jersey is #5. He is a popular guy in Arizona and is spoken of for his plays on and off the field.

It was drawn from a photo of him in the sports section of a local magazine as inspiration. I drew it live on Mill Ave, Tempe, a couple blocks from the football stadium. I set up my easel right on the sidewalk. It was the night of a big football game on Homecoming weekend. The game had just finished and the fans were pumped up. The crowds were excited to blow off the steam and many were fans coming right from the game. They were very lively as they walked the street going from bar to bar. It was fun doing the work and hearing their reactions as they stopped and saw I was drawing one of their favorite players.
