View Full Version : CgTalk Daily Sketch 1270 NTL Evel Knievel

11 November 2007, 10:43 PM
Yesterday one of my childhood heroes died at 69.

I know that most of you have no idea who this man was, but Evel Knievel was one of the craziest daredevils EVER.
Any kid born in the 60's & 70's wanted to be him.

Here are some of his career highlights:

Knievel Jumps 11 Mack Trucks (
Evel Knievel Portland (
Evel Knievel at Caesar's Palace (
Evel Knievel jumps the Grand Canyon (
Keep in mind that he did this stuff 30 years ago on a Harley that weighed 6 or 8 times that of today's bikes. No fuel injection, no advanced materials.

Ahh... My uncle owns an Evel Knievel museum in Niagara Falls...
I've had enough of this guy when I was 6, nevermind spending more than 20 minutes drawing him.
