Ben Roethlisberger as a Garbage Pail Kid
 
I'd like to preface this by saying I am a Steelers fan and I am doing one of these for a bunch of players like Tom Looks-Like-a-Lady, Ray Suit-less, Paid-a-Ton Manning, etc.

Hope you can appreciate the humor in this. Took me over a week to finish.

Where did this idea come from? Well, as some of you already know, I had a little girl 4 months ago and I started to think of ways I could generate some extra income. I hadn't drawn much in years and she kind of motivated me to get back at it again. I grew up with Garbage Pail Kids and I am a big sports fan. This came about after a similar illustration I did at work of Mike Wallace prompted my friend to say "hey looks kind of like a Garbage Pail Kid." So there you have it. Came up with the Garbage Time Pros name and the All Fun League. Started sketching a bunch of characters and figured this one was a good place to start.

I've got a poster size print (22x28) on ebay right now. You can check that out here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=221374799374

That's awesome.

And, I love the graffiti. Subtle... but, funny. "Stairway to 7"... Troy... bike accident...

I want one for my man cave.

Is $100 the reserve on this auction?

You should go with a Ray Slew-is.

Will there be a Michael Sick or Adam-12 "Pacman" Jones poster as well?

Hey there, there is no reserve. Min bid is $9.99 and the $99 is the buy now price. So if you don't want to wait for the auction/bidding process paying the $99 will make it yours.

The Ray Suit-less idea is Ray with his mysterious missing white suit in a dumpster behind him. As for the others I'm open to suggestions.

At some point I'm also doing:
Shameful Sherman
Brett's Boner
Blind Side Hines
Revis and Buc-head
Frigid Perry
Keap'n Kissy Flex
Drew Zzz's

That is freaking awesome! I love the Terrible TP, and Troy's face. :chuckle: And the glory hole. :sofunny:

Call Troy for great head and shoulders. Genius. Pure genius. :laughing:

Very well done.

Badass, dude! What program and/or medium do you use? And do you have any art training/background?

I'm excited to see more. You're making me wanna jump in with you, if for nothing less than to poke fun at some of the other teams' players.
