Highly Detailed Artwork Shows Up in an Unusual Place

You’ve heard me talk about the importance of artwork and the trend towards more highly detailed art in both sports and fashion. Well here is a very unusual example of fantastically detailed art showing up in a sport that only gets major coverage every four years–skeleton. Yes, you’ve all seen attention-getting football and hockey and motorcycle helmets before, but this is the first time I’ve ever seen artwork like this. Kudos to the Canadian Olympic skeleton team for showing their individuality with these one of a kind designs. I think you can rest assured that this won’t be the last time you will see artwork taking the center stage in the world of sports.
