My next player portrait is NFL Hall of Famer, "Bullet" Bill Dudley. Bill played for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1942, 1945 and 1946. Bill served in the Army in 1943 and 1944. Believe or not, Bill Dudley is still with us! He is in his nineties! Mr. Rooney said that he still as "sharp as a tack. The portrait is a graphite measuring 11” x 16”.
The Hall of Fame supplied me with a high-res photograph of the official "Hall of Fame" ring which I photoshopped Bill's name and his position on to it. Bill Dudley was a "Hall of Fame" Halfback, but he played many positions on the defense and as a kick returner.
This is my “Collector Card” art that I did for Art Rooney, Jr. featuring my pencil of Bill Dudley.
