Chicago Bulls star basketball player Derrick Rose has missed all of the 2012 - 2013 season. During that time he has managed to keep well in the public eye. He has done this by keeping quiet on his return and making sure people think he could return at any time. He has also had a new shoe released by adidas which was accompanied by a new logo. The logo has at its centre the letter d. The d is surrounded by simple spike like shapes that take the form of a rose.
This portrait is inspired by his new logo. Instead of using clean edges like my other portraits, i have chosen to model each segment after part of the rose in the new derrick rose logo.
