THE ULTIMATE SOURCE FOR CREATIVE TALENT

Brian Allen’s “Gritty” Design Becomes A World Sensation

[ Posted: Oct 09, 2019 ]


The Internet might not have been too kind at first to the in-real-life incarnation of the Philadelphia Flyer’s mascot Gritty, but with time, the orange monster has become somewhat of a media sensation. Appearing in everything from public stunts to Twitter feeds, Gritty has become one of Philadelphia’s (and possibly for ice hockey as a whole) most lovable characters " to the point where he’s even being tattooed onto his most devoted fans! “Very proud to have been part of something so big!”, said Altpick member Brian Allen, who was the original creator behind the now world-famous mascot.

More info about the inception of Gritty (including some early concept art) and his current status among sports fans can be seen in this recent feature produced by ESPN.
