"The Comeback" Graphite on Bristol, 11x14.
After two consecutive season-ending injuries (arm broken in 2012, torn ACL & MCL in 2013), Rob Gronkowski fought every day to return to proper form, and to remind everyone the beast the was when healthy. With multiple NFL records under his belt, he added +10 touchdowns in multiple seasons by a Tight End, along with cementing his legacy as a staple of the New England Patriots' offense and being one of the best Tight Ends to ever play the game, if not the best ever. So with having such a great season, he won "Comeback Player of The Year", along with being part of the 2014 Super Bowl Champions. So in drawing him, I felt I had to capture this, in his environment; doing what he does best. And seeing week after week, improving each game, it was inspiring. He's not the only player to do this, but it surely did inspire me to keep grinding, and to keep focusing on what will be beneficial for my future. Thanks for looking.
