My Super Rad MJ Birthday Party Jam Session!
Poster / invite for my 28th birthday party - 2013
I designed this poster to promote my party for my 28th birthday. Michael Jordan has been my hero since I was about 6-years-old back in 1991. At the time, the Chicago Bulls had just won their first championship prevailing over Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles Lakers.
Throughout elementary school I spent hours drawing Michael Jordan, and during every recess on the playground I played basketball. I collected as many Michael Jordan cards as I could afford with my allowance, and my entire room was emblazoned with Bulls paraphernalia, including 6 posters featuring Jordan. In 3rd grade I was featured in Lego Club Magazine for my rendition of Michael Jordan and the Bulls logo built out of Legos. I even had a pair of Air Jordan 9s back in 1994.
I also based several school projects on Michael Jordan, and when my 6th grade history teacher had the audacity to tell me "Michael Jordan shouldn't be your hero. You should choose an artist instead," I was completely appalled...
