Panini America, the official trading card partner of the NBA and NBPA, has just announced an extension of its partnership with Memphis Grizzlies star point guard Ja Morant that will keep his highly desirable autographed memorabilia exclusively available through Panini. To coincide with the announcement, Panini, along with their Vice President of Marketing, Jason Howarth, commissioned local artist Jamond Bullock (@alivepaint) to paint and unveil a mural of Morant on a Panini “Color Blast” trading card in downtown Memphis.
In this interview I talk with the “man behind the can” Jamond Bullock. Bullock is a local artist that was commissioned by Panini to create the mural of Ja Morant using the “Color Blast” theme. We discuss many topics such as his vision for how he hopes people will see his work, how Morant impacts the community, and much more. Jamond and I discuss that and more in the interview below.
