Devoted Husker fan creates mini Memorial Stadium
Looks can be deceiving. What may seem small to some, has a big meaning for others.
"I put a lot of attention to detail in to south stadium because we have tickets right there that have been in the family for decades," Trey Ashby said.
Longtime Husker fan Trey Ashby dedicated over 75 hours of his life to create a one-of-a-kind mini Memorial Stadium.
"Growing up I would always be drawing. Husker football players, baseball and then it was stadiums. I don't know why, I just loved drawing stadiums. I have a binder of them that I drew from junior high age," Ashby said.
He took that love to a different level, paying attention to every little detail.
From the big screen, to the statues and even the concession stand, all of it, made entirely out of paper.
"Glue, paper, a lot of cutting. Using the tip of a paper clip to put stuff in there. I've had a lot of people ask me and it's really just figuring out what works and what doesn't work," he said.
Through the 12 week process, Ashby gained a following on twitter that he said kept his dedication going, even through the hard parts.
"I think my artistic challenge was to do almost all of it by hand. All of the the windows, the rows, even the field is all hand drawn with sharpies, pencil, highlighters," Ashby said.
Weighing only five ounces, mini Memorial Stadium may be small but demonstrates a passion bigger than words.
Ashby said he would be willing to sell the art work but it'd have to be the right price due to the countless hours of hard work.
