Hanging a print of a man you admire is a way to express your feelings more permanently than drawing his name in the sand and more legally than stealing his mail to use as teddy-bear stuffing. Commemorate a coach with today's Groupon: for $85, you get a six-print Paul Bear Bryant championship collection with shipping from My Bama Prints (a $220 value).
Artist Nathan Simpson of My Bama Prints celebrates Paul Bear Bryant's legacy with a six-portrait sketch collection that depicts each of the iconic University of Alabama coach’s championship titles won between 1961 and 1979. Simpson will ship one print from the collection per month inside an art tube, which protects sketches of Bryant, surrounded by the top players from each season’s roster, from errant piñata swings. Each realistic pencil rendering comes numbered and signed by the artist. For a sneak peak of each month's print, Simpson will ship a package of preliminary sketches and composition, which customers can save or use to train children in the art of forgery.
MyBamaPrints.com founder and artist Nate Simpson channels his passion for the state of Alabama’s gridiron traditions with original football artwork based on customer suggestions and input. Simpson's ever-expanding repertoire immortalizes the pantheon of coaches and players of the Crimson Tide and Auburn in detailed graphite portraits and colorful paintings, enshrining special limited-edition prints in double-matting and custom-made frames. Each hand-drawn and giclee print chronicles the finest moments of one of the greatest rivalries in college sports, from Bear Bryant's six national championships to Cam Newton's 1994 appearance on Star Search.
