Floyd Mayweather Jr.: The Blue and the Gray

Floyd Mayweather Jr. art, Copic and Micron markers on 9" X 12" Bristol Board

Just for the hell of it, here's an art marker rendering of the self-proclaimed "The Best Ever," World Welterweight/World Junior Middleweight Champion Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr.

Kind of a surreal, pop art bent, Floyd here is rendered on 9" X 12" Bristol Board, Micron and Faber-Castell artist pens and Copic markers.

So, is there some sort of sub-text here with the blue cast? Is it a mood I'm establishing? Does the blue represent the cold, calculating indifference or the cold, hard cash of which Mayweather associates himself? Or is it a powder blue, depicting a soft Mayweather who avoids the biggest and best challenges?

Neither. I ran out of light gray ink.

I think I feel a Spider-Man portrait coming on...
