The Super Bowl XLVI illustration is part of a series of sport illustrations inspired by professional athletes for Maguire's MFA in Illustration Thesis project at the University of Hartford. Maguire's illustration of the Patriots Tom Brady as "War Machine" was featured as the cover illustration for Dig Boston Magazine's first issue of 2012. Since then the series has included Celtics power forward/warrior Kevin Garnett and Patriots Rob Gronkowski as The Incredible GRONK! There are more illustrations to come!
