Area 51 Having just completed the portrait of Deacon Jones, surrealist artist Jota Leal wanted to paint another football player with a ”bad attitude.” Jota only paints celebrity portraits and his passion is to paint those whose faces show character and intensity. This painting is called “Area 51’”—a dangerous place where no one in his right mind wishes to go. #51, Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker for the Chicago Bears, Dick Butkus, was that kind of player, feared by everyone he opposed, and arguably the greatest linebacker ever. He and Deacon used to argue with one another as to which one of them was the meanest player ever, each one calling the other meanest of them all. That argument was never resolved. The first print of this amazing NFL art was sent to Dick Butkus and now hangs proudly in his home. You don’t need to be a fan of any team to love this NFL art. The entire feeling of this painting gives a sense of timelessness for all franchises and generations to enjoy.   It is a surrealistic NFL painting of what the National Football League is all about—the very greatest legends of the game forever. It belongs in any man cave or as a sports art collector’s favorite piece of NFL memorabilia.

Nitschke #66, Ray Nitschke, spent his entire fifteen year career as linebacker for the Green Bay
