My favorite Hawkeye moment was a football game I went to a couple years ago. I think it was the America Needs Farmers game when they displayed a huge American Flag that filled the entire field. It was awesome to see! And the energy that I felt from everyone around me cheering was incredible! Very proud to be a Hawkeye! -Stacy Strother
about the artist
As a kid, Ivan was always drawing and being creative. It wasn’t until 2004 when he got into the auto body industry working for BMW USA in California that he found an avenue to use his artistic flare. He started custom painting and airbrushing anything and everything from cars and skateboards to helmets and bowling pins. Since moving to Iowa he switched careers to be a dental lab technician, but continues to do any custom paint work, metal fabrication or wood work that crosses his path.
BEHIND THE DESIGN
Herky cleans up quite well for all brides to pose with! This design was airbrushed from head to toe and no detail went unnoticed, even the Hawkeye vest under his suit jacket.
