Tommy Kono Tribute Drawing.

May 6, 2016

Here is the piece I did as tribute to the great Mr. Kono.  This man had a profound effect on me during my early years lifting weights.  I actually have a great story of the first time we met and he watched me train.

Classic pose.  Half his body at rest, half supporting his weight.

I don’t plan on selling this one but I’d let it go to the right person for $300.00.  I actually want to get it framed and have a special plaque made for it.  Keep it in the lair.  Any weightlifting gym in Sacramento is one that he built while he trained in the internment camp.

I have step by step photos that I can post of the progress of this piece if anyone is interested.

Oh and if anyone steals this image for personal gain, you are trash.
