And the winner is … Mark Cooper of Bowling Green, Ohio.
Cooper, a 21-year-old senior at Bowling Green State University, is the winner of the ASN Design the Mascot. With the glory of winning the contest, he also earned $1,500, which he doesn’t plan to spend all at once.
Told about the contest by a friend, the Warren, Ohio, native said he used to cartoon for his football team. He is studying drawing and painting at BGSU and plans to pursue a career in animation, design and graphic design.
A long-suffering Cleveland Browns fan (as all tend to be), Cooper is looking forward to seeing his winning illustration come to life later this year.
