|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.
