Razorbacks- A Face That Only A Fan (or their Mother) Could Love

So I've been asked to do my rendition of an Arkansas Razorback bead (as a gift-not for sale).  And anytime I do something new, I have to do a little research to see what exactly I'm doing.  Here is their logo. Kind of mean looking critter, isn't it?

And then I also found this close up shot, that would make a more fun bead to do, because there's more personality and different detail.

Rather oozing charm, wouldn't you say?  I do like how his teeth are so rectangular and his face is expressive.

But my favorite form of the Razorback is this picture.  I'm hoping one of you reading this is a fan and can tell me that you own one of these hats.  They sure make me smile.  It kind of looks like an angry red relative to Alf.  (remember him?)

So when I'm done, I'll show you my bead. And in case you're worrying, no need to be concerned about copyright- it's not for sale, but it is for some Beads of Courage parents.  And I'm guessing they need that strength that the hog portrays.
