In the case of John Lee, it was an image of the late, great football player who played for the Cincinnati Bengals and then the Philadelphia Eagles.
As a former NFL player, Lee was the epitome of everything the modern era of sports represents: hard work, dedication, loyalty, passion, a love for the game and the fans and the people who support it.
When he retired in 2007, Lee’s career as a muralist in Cincinnati, and the city in general, ended.
The iconic image of Lee sitting on a stool, hands on hips, smiling in the face of a camera, is a favorite in the Cincinnati area, with the city’s sports teams, including the Cincinnati Reds and the Cincinnati Bearcats, often featuring it on the stadium’s walls.
Lee’s career in Cincinnati started with a mural on a corner of a street in the city.
He said he drew the original concept after a meeting with the Cincinnati Sports Department, where the Bengals were playing their first game at the time.
After that, he moved onto murals for the teams in Cincinnati and Philadelphia, but then moved to Cincinnati and Washington in the late ’90s.
Lee said that when the Bengals moved to Washington in 1999, he was invited to paint a mural that would have a similar effect to the one that he painted for the Bengals, but with a different message.
“I think it was because of that one thing I was doing that they were kind of hesitant to let me come back,” Lee said.
“And then the Redskins moved in 1999 and I was invited back to do the same thing with the Bengals.
I was really looking forward to that because it was kind of like a dream come true.”

It is the first time Lee has painted a mural for a professional team.
It features a Bengals logo and is a popular sight on city streets.
The mural was also a favorite with the team, with Lee being one of the few Bengals to have his work on display in the stadium.
John Lee was one of five Cincinnati Bengals muralists who painted for three NFL teams in the 1990s.
He is now retired.
(John Lewis/The Cincinnati Enquirer)Lee said he was surprised that the Redskins, the team he was originally drawn to, did not have a mural in their building.
He said he thought it would be cool to paint in their parking lot, but they didn’t have any space available for him.
Lee said that after two weeks of waiting, he finally received permission to leave.
Since retiring from the Bengals in 2006, Lee said he has been able to focus on his new endeavor, creating murals in the Washington and Cincinnati area.
His latest work, which is on display at the University of Cincinnati Museum of Art, is titled “The NFL Players’ Museum,” a nod to the number of players he painted during his career.
Lee said his mural for the Washington, D.C. Redskins features a portrait of a former teammate and former team president, John Riggins, who died last month at the age of 93.
He also featured the image of former player and current Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden.
Lee is still waiting for the final approval to do a mural at the team’s new home, the FedEx Field in Landover, Md.
While he was unable to finish the mural in his building, Lee does have a good relationship with the Washington Monument.
The monument, built by President George Washington in 1790, is often painted by artists who are fans of the team and the team fans.
The Redskins have their own mural on display there, with a photo of former quarterback and current Redskins defensive back Josh Allen.
In the Washington area, Lee has murals on display, too.
He painted a number of murals at the local high school and college football games.
He also paints murals every other week in his hometown of Cincinnati, with his work often featured on local newspapers.

Lee and other former Bengals are now working to bring their murals to FedEx Field.
He says that they have received several inquiries from the public about where he could put his murals, and that he is hopeful that his work will be placed in a location that will be accessible to the public.
He said the goal is to have a space where the public can walk in and see his work, and where he can do it without disrupting any of the other art that is being displayed.
Although he has never painted for a national team, Lee did paint for the team in the NFL as a student at the Art Institute of Technology in New York City.
He studied art at Columbia University and graduated in 2002.
