In my opinion, these images are the perfect blend of playful objectiveness. I hope they had as much fun in concept and execution as I feel when I see the finished product here. These mascots make me envision coaching 29 little league teams and winning 29 championships. Enjoy the carousel and judge me for my write-ups like an elementary principal.
Easily the dopest thing since Space Jam.
I feel like the NBA should adopt these for children’s books or youth events per team. They all sponsor their respective Boys & Girls’ Clubs, so it wouldn’t be too far of a leap. I also feel that Canada should have another NBA team.
Sidenote: this is post number 23 for me.
Remember the Harlem Globetrotters cartoon?
These come from a group of designers based in Montreal (If you guys see this, here’s my apology for not posting the Raptors illustration). They’re all pretty nice; these 3 aren’t my favs, they just happen to work together for this post. I’m going somewhere with this one.

It’s easy to get bogged down with tasks in this freelance/production lifestyle. I don’t know how much fun this set of images was [or wasn’t] for these guys, but there’s a certain skill in bringing joy to the drawing board time-after-time, day-after-day. There’s a totally different set of training associated with that principle.
