This seasons Survivor television show is being played out in the jungles of Guatemala amidst ancient Mayan ruins. In episode three there was a basketball type challenge. The reason they did this is because the Mayans used to play “Pok-Ta-Pok”… a brutal form of modern day basketball.
This reminded me of a job I did in the early nineties for my buddy Joe Bohrer.
The project was for a new line of tennis shoes from LA Gear. Joe came up with this great marketing idea about an awesome ancient Mayan basketball team called EarthMonsters. This is the comic book we did to promote the new product.
By the way… Joe was just on HGTV building one of his utopia chairs. You can take a look at it on the HGTV website.
