ARTomic Drop | January 1, 2021

It’s no secret; wrestling has a passionate fanbase. Really passionate. Collecting merch, streaming content daily, producing podcasts, and talking all things wrasslin’ wherever we can find a platform. It’s hard to find a wrestling fan who isn’t eager to express their fandom beyond consuming content, and in many cases that expression is manifested fan art.

Take a gander at this week’s gallery, curated from some of the most creative and endearing artists out there.

Jon Huber Tributes

As much as we would prefer to keep the tone of our first gallery light-spirited, the end of 2020 had other plans. Jon Huber, better known as Brodie Lee and as Luke Harper, passed away at the age of 41. He is survived by his wife and two sons.

While our empathy is placed first with those who loved him (which seems to be literally everyone who ever knew him), this was a hard moment for fans. Huber was an exceptional big man in wrestling with so much untapped potential, and to see him pass at a young age while in the prime of his career was difficult to process.

Needless to say, the artists of the wrestling fandom had their way to process their grief. Thank you to the artists who celebrated Jon’s life with these wonderful pieces.
