The California-based artist (and professional baseball player) says that each recycled tire sculpture takes around one month to complete. He says he loves being able to be eco-friendly by using 100% recycled tires to make his distinctive tire sculpture art. 

Tire animals are not all he does, though. He also uses 100% recycled natural wine corks to create mural pictures of highly detailed pictures or even words, using between 200 to 4,000 wine corks in each of his works. 

The custom-made tire sculptures were actually prepared in honor of the journey to the 81st Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic by Goodyear to celebrate "the University of Wisconsin and Western Michigan University #Blimpworthy attributes of hard work, determination and grit." 

Take a look at the videos below to learn more about this amazing art and how it was all done.
