Throwback Thursday: Bernie Brewer Statue



Here’s another project from my “secret files” that I finally have permission to show:

Back in 2012 I was hired by Idea Planet to help out with a display for the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team, in conjunction with Southwest Airlines. They were having a promotional event that included a booth where fans could have their pictures taken next to a life-sized statue of the team mascot, Bernie Brewer. Idea Planet designed the booth and asked me to do turnarounds that the sculptor could use as reference for the statue.

My drawings are above. Below is a photo the client sent me of the final result. The sculptor seems to have modified my design, especially the arms, but overall everything looks colorful and fun. I’m sure people enjoyed goofing around with the statue and I was glad to be a part of it.
