As a former OSU Band Member, I had the privilege to study under and get to know Dr. Jon Woods. Dr. Woods had touched the lives of hundreds of people by being the Director of the OSU Marching Band. It was this element to his career that inspired me to design the portrait using the names of all his students. By adjusting the thickness of each of the letters, I was able to create the necessary “shading”
This portrait exists in two places. Proudly displayed within the Joan Zieg Steinbrenner Band Center at The Ohio State University and the other, in the private home of the Woods family.
