Gritty

September 05, 2019

Ever since he burst onto the scene on September 24th, 2018, we just haven't been able to stop talking about Gritty. In his first year alone, he made various late night appearances, ziplined from the top of the Linc, went streaking, and won numerous awards. As part of my mission, I want to create a word art for every Philly sports icon, and Gritty has already captured the hearts of Philadelphians. 
 
If you look closely, the entire image was handwritten with his official origin story (found on the Flyers' website), full name (Grittwald G. Grittington), height, address, and social handles. I also did my best to create the whole thing using Gritty's signature handwriting...I hope that you have as much fun with this art as I did, and I guarantee it'll bring a smile to the face of whoever receives it!

Prints are available here.
