The Powercat logo was created in 1989 when football coach Bill Snyder wanted to reinvent the logo. He asked the KSU art department for help where professor Tom Bookwalter was chosen to create the new logo. Snyder wanted something more iconic, aggressive looking, yet sleek and simple. The Powercat was born and loved by students and alumni ever since.
I am a KSU student who graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. My college years are so near and dear to my heart that I wanted to display my Wildcat pride in my own home with a dash of sophistication. I created 6 paintings and received such warm feedback that I set out to get licensed by the University. I am one of only a handful of artists with exclusive rights, and the only artist licensed to sell artwork using the Vintage logos of the Wabash Collection. I am delighted to share my artwork with fellow K-State alum and hope it sparks fond memories with friends and family.
In August 2021 the University showed its love and appreciation for my work by allowing my paintings to have their first public debut on the campus itself. Located in the Student Union Kemper Art Gallery I had the honor to display my work in a Solo Exhibition named "The Pride and The Passion."
With each K-State order, you will receive a Certificate of Authenticity displaying my signature along with the holographic sticker designating that the artwork is fully licensed by the University. A portion of each sale goes back to support the school.
