Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Wake Forest Demon Deacons

My college mascot was Talon the Osprey (although I’m not even sure he had a name way back in 1996)  If you don’t know what that is, which most people don’t, it’s a large fish eating bird.  I thought that was one of the most obscure mascots until I moved down south and discovered that Wake Forest’s mascot was a Demon Deacon.

There is a interesting history on the genesis of the Demon Deacon.  During my extensive research (i.e. Google and Wikipedia), the most interesting fact I discovered was that one of their mascots fell into a coma after smashing his head on a Gatorade jug while headbanging?  Now that’s dedication to your team.

This piece was created for a Wake Forest alumni’s parent, who is also an alum and big Wake sports fan.  It was a fun piece to create, and add to my series of college sports mascots pen creations.

I can create most anything for you! Custom orders available.
