For some time I’ve had inspiration to start a new NBA art project as part of our bartsketball concept. A portrait series, depicting NBA stars, mixed with images which portray a sense of who they are or reflect their nicknames. And finally, here is part one of that series.

If you’ve got ideas as to other players who would be perfect for this series, then please do let me know. The images do not require description… click on each one in order to see them in larger format.


Derrick Rose

Kobe Bryant

John Wall

Carmelo Anthony

Gilbert Arenas

Shaq Diesel

King James LeBron

The Big Ticket Kevin Garnett

I welcome your feedback on the series and any suggestions for future portraits. Read more about the bartsketball concept here.
