WRESTLING ARTISTS: Tong-Uk Yi of Algona HS
I keep forgetting to post something about this… So I have this series called “Wrestling Artists” in which I encourage any former wrestlers, coaches, fans, etc. to send in their artwork and I will post their work on the page/site. To this point, there have been 5-6 or so people who sent their artwork in to me, which I’ve posted. One of these wrestler-artists was longtime Assistant Wrestling Coach at Algona HS, Tong-Uk Yi. I liked his work so much, that it inspired me to buy my family a gift by getting pictures drawn of my 3 brothers and I… And as I expected, I thought they turned out great! What he was able to create from 4 photos that I sent him is just incredible to me and I don’t know what his plans are in terms of whether he wants to monetize his work, but I’m just saying, if you would like something like this done for one of your kids/wrestlers/etc. I would highly recommend Tong-Uk Yi!! These pics will stay in my family for generations and I’m honored he was willing to capture these! Great work, Coach Yi!
Again! I encourage you all to send whatever artwork you’d like to be seen on here!
