When you hear the phrase “athlete turned artist”, you usually think of music - and ear-cringing vanity records like efforts by Ron Artest or Kobe Bryant. But the SPORTING BLOG says that there’s a new contender who actually puts the “art” in “artistic”: Rams RB Steven Jackson, who has taken the time to post some of his sketches on his Twitter page.
Although to be fair, we’re not talking “Merlin Olsen and His Pick-Me-Up Bouquet” level of sensitivity here. No, Jackson’s latest drawing shows what he considers to be a “strong woman” - which apparently means Pam Grier from “Foxy Brown,” except more heavily armed. And apparently more heavily topped as well.
Judge for yourself after the jump.
