The Columbus Blue Jackets released a fun summer time video called “Painting with the Prospects” featuring Andrew Peeke and Trey Fix-Wolansky. The pair were asked to paint the Blue Jackets’ logo. It did not go as well as planned.

Watch the video below and decide for yourself.

After laughing a bunch at Fix-Wolansky and Peeke’s attempt to paint the logo, we decided to give it a whirl. The only rule was it had to be our first attempt at drawing the logo. Also, most of us don’t have paint at our disposal. So, we decided it would be best to draw the logo.

It couldn’t be that hard, right? None of us have taken a drawing class. So, we could be wrong.

Scroll down to see the beautiful art we created.

Ryan Real (free hand)

Will Chase (iPad Pro)

Elaine Shircliff (free hand, stared at the logo for 10 minutes before drawing it)

MrSwift (free hand with crayon, drew it while looking at his tattoo)

In Conclusion, our finished products were not as glorious and perfectly crafted as we imagined they would be at the start of the challenge. The fact it had to be done on the first try was nerve wracking. To be honest, I found myself sweating a bit while drawing. I knew I only had one shot and I was not going to throw away my shot.

All in all, everyone did a pretty decent job of capturing the true beauty of the Jackets logo.
