    I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, but I just had to show this off.

    My wife made this for my birthday. Using 3/4" plywood, she drew out the logo by hand, cut it out and hand-painted it. It's over 7.5 feet wide. We're going to hang it on our wall this weekend.

    Now I'm ready for the season to start.

    Thanks,

    She spent a lot of time on it. The silver took about 8 coats because of the consistency for some reason.

    She's a great artist and she's got the Pat's logo down pat.

    Her next project is a much smaller version for a friend of ours down the street. Although we live in TN, there are quite a few Patriot fans in the area.

    I would, but she drew the outline of the logo by hand, just by looking at my jersey as reference. She then cut it out and sanded it. Then applied primer.

    She then drew the interior lines. The mouth area of the logo is a little off, but who's gonna freegin notice. Then she painted the white, blue, red and silver. Silver ended up being a pain as she was using metallic and it took 8 coats.

    Yea, we actually cut it off a cereal box. How could you tell?
    As far as including her in the picture, yea, kinda weird, I mean how often do you see people on the internet? Plus I'm too ugly.
