    The passing of 41-year-old NBA legend Kobe Bryant along with his 13-year-old Gianna and seven other people in a helicopter crash rocked the world, bringing waves of sorrow across the internet. Even non-basketball fans mourned the loss of a man who was amazing in the court, as a father, and in the ‘outside’ world.

    Tributes poured in for Kobe, with many famous stars and celebrities penning heartbreaking messages for a friend they lost. While many fans also made artwork and wrote messages expressing admiration to the star.

    John Herbert Santiago, a grade 12 STEM student at Panipuan High School in San Fernando, Pampanga, recently went viral for his beautiful artwork that he made as tribute to Kobe. According to the young man, he made the drawing during their breaktime but when their teacher came back to the classroom, the artwork stayed on the board – and it’s really hard to erase such a beautiful piece of art!

    Made from chalk, the drawing was created as a silhouette art that still managed to capture the NBA legend’s likeness despite the student only drawing what looks like the outline of his upper body. The shape of the head and the details on the face are definitely those of Kobe. He appears to be wearing a hoodie and carrying a ball in his hand.
