Things to look at while you listen
Evan has a special connection to the Trail Blazers, as an artist who has created commissioned work for the Blazer’s front office and the designer behind such popular designs as the “D.A.M.E. to keep coming up clutch” and “Digital Dame” t-shirts.
You can find pictures of many of the styles discussed in the gallery at the top of this page. We’ve also included a few more images below:
