From the artist, Jon Newman:
This is my tribute to the greatest basketball player who ever played the game, Michael Jordan. In the illustration I chose to show the contrast between the younger Jordan (jumping) and the older Jordan (larger profile). I positioned the older Jordan looking up at the younger Jordan as if he's looking back upon his amazing career. I also decided to not use the typical Jordan pose that Nike has trademarked because this effort is focused on the player/person and not the brand. Similarly, I designed a custom monogram based on Jordan's initials "M" and "J" and then used those shapes to create the entire illustration.
