We’re really on a roll around here regarding unusual Travis McGee portraits. Someday I’ll have to publish a portrait gallery of all the different McGees out there. I think of ole Travis as a non-threatening looking kind of guy who you only realize is dangerous once it’s too late. This guy looks like he’s in a bad mood and won’t fight fair, but I’ll give the artist credit: he does look a lot like a Southern offensive lineman from the 1960s, which fits with Travis’ tight end career.

I like the regular artwork. It’s not particularly exciting but it has a kind of cubist Picasso blue period thing going. I’ve seen worse.
