Turning Ayo into a superhero


CHAMPAIGN-URBANA, Ill. (WCIA) — A fun design turned a Fighting Illini into a DC Superhero.

Ayo Dosunmu’s face was turned into Batman. It was designed by the U of I Director of Creative Media Kelsea Ansfield.

The inspiration came from the mask Dosunmu wears on the court.

“He’s a big fan of the response he’s gotten from his mask. You know, he choose the mask he did because of Kobe and because that superhero kind of vibe he gets from it. So, I think he appreciated us tying all that together for him,” says Ansfield.

She says the design took her 10 minutes to create and that Dosunmu liked it.
