A few months ago I received an email from Ali, a policeman here in Brooklyn, asking if I would be able to sculpt a fantasy football trophy for cops. At the time I was busy stocking up on inventory for the beginning of football season and said I wouldn’t have the time and that a custom trophy would cost quite a bit. Though disappointed, he understood and said if I ever developed a trophy specifically for cops he’d be the first to order one. A couple months later I found myself having a similar conversation but this time with a fireman in Florida. The difference however was that I had some free time and thought I’d give it a shot. The Throwback Fireman would soon be born. I liked the results so much that I put it up on my blog and since then have sculpted an Armchair Quarterback Fireman to rave reviews. Both trophies will soon be available on FantasyTrophies.com.
Re-enter Ali. Seeing that I went ahead and sculpted a trophy for fireman and not the police, Ali reached out to me once again. He was incredibly enthusiastic about seeing a similar trophy sculpted for cops and went gave me a number of reasons why it would be a great idea. It didn’t take much convincing. I knew it would be a hit and something I’d really enjoy doing. The great thing is that Ali and a few other Brooklyn policemen want to stop by the shop at some point to help work with me on the overall design and to brainstorm some ideas. One thing that I definitely wanted to be a part of the design was a nice mustache and aviator glasses. I was so excited with the idea that I got right to work. As you can see, the Armchair Quarterback Policeman is well on it’s way and a fantasy football trophy that will stand alone to represent policeman everywhere.
