The Xavier Institute Fightin' Wolverines

I based the design for this fan art piece on the Notre Dame Fightin' Irish mascot.
Like many of my drawings these ideas begin life as sketches on paper.

I've always been fascinated by the design that goes into the mascot characters of sports teams, for the most part as a kid with only a mild interest in sport it was the only thing I found that appealed to me.

The logo is not only a sweet cartoon of a stocky, quick-tempered leprechaun stereotype it's also one of the most geometrically balanced caricatures I've ever seen. So naturally when I saw it I thought Wolverine.
