The concept of this painting was derived from Dwyane’s nickname “the Flash.”  Since the name was taken from the classic comic book character Flash Gordon, I wanted to stay with that theme and incorporate images of Dwyane on my own version of a comic book cover.  I incorporated the NBA logo into a design that is typically found on the top left corner of a comic.  The layout, including all the type, was created in photoshop.  The final image created in photoshop was used as the reference for the painting.
