Ode to Uga VI

4 Comments

Our beloved Georgia mascot, Uga VI, died last night. He was crowned when Jake & I were students there, was our largest and winningest mascot, and will be greatly missed by the Bulldog Nation.

Sam decided he wanted to remember Uga (pronounced UH-guh…. not ooo-guh or you-gee-ay) with some memorial art.
First, a rough draft.

Now, down to work on the real thing.
Blending some colors.

We’ll miss you, Uga VI– the way you rolled in the ice, your floppy jowls, and especially your tendency toward immodest camera angles . We look forward to meeting VII and cheering on our Dawgs for years to come.
