For those who have encountered a big musky or pike, you’ll know how ferocious they can be. With a mouthful of daggers, they are every fish’s worst nightmare. Fishing for these lurking beasts can be one of the most thrilling species and also the most frustrating. Although they’re known for their aggression and appetite, they can also be exceptionally wary following your presentation, seemingly analyzing and testing it.
Like them or not, musky are the thing of legend and I wanted to do a piece that encapsulated that attitude with graphite pencil.
This was a fun project. Jeff Pelayo, owner of AWA Waterfowling, contacted me interested in a custom logo. He sent me a bunch of reference photos of what he was thinking and the style he aimed to achieve. This was to be grungy yet professional and classy, which are difficult to combine. After several back and forth revisions we started getting on the right track. This logo will be used for his spring snow goose hunting/outfitting.
