Another Day, Another Legend

Posted in Uncategorized on September 1st, 2006 by admin

Sports artist, Kevin-John continues to diversify his portfolio by adding former Boxing Heavyweight Champion of the World, Smokin’ Joe Frazier, to his client list.

Joe Frazier will clearly go down in history as one of the greatest fighters of all time. His career had many high points, although many will agree that his bouts with Muhammad Ali, most specifically the “Thrilla in Manila”, were some of the most exciting and memorable in sports history.

Joe and his son, Marvis Frazier, sought out Kevin-John to lend his talents to help raise money for the “Smokin’ Joe Frazier Foundation” and KJ was happy to oblige.
The relationship and projects will consist of many fund raising events featuring Kevin-John creating sketches of Joe “live” during the events. These sketches are then autographed and auctioned off.

The project will also include a “fine line” graphite portrait of Joe in his fighting glory that will be printed, autographed and available to the general public.

The addition of such storied athletes to KJ’s client list is beginning to take on an almost common place nature, but the significance of these commissions is not lost to the artist. Kevin-John comments, “Once again, I find myself in the presence of an athlete that at the highest point in his career was world renown and the best in his business.
I can recall him fighting in the early 70’s, watching him on TV, I was a very young boy then, and he was bigger than life. To have someone like Mr. Frazier take notice of my art has me speechless. Although, I did joke with my family that I find it funny how you just never know who my wife and I will be having dinner with any given weekend, last weekend Joe Frazier, this weekend Chris Berman.”
