Default 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:
