MOREHEAD, Ky. (WKYT) — Morehead State University cheerleader Marinda Bosley is inundated with commissions for her Cincinnati Bengals-inspired artwork adorned on blue denim jackets.
She didn’t think her designs were good enough, but after receiving encouragement from her family, it was on.
The Northern Kentucky native has created Bengals-inspired denim jackets, as well as custom orders for other teams. She wore a Bengals while supporting Cincinnati in the AFC Championship game and her family encouraged her to sell them online, but she was hesitant.
“You’re always afraid of someone telling you it’s no good or it’s not worth much,” Bosley said.
When she had the courage, she posted her work on social networks and it took off.
“I sold the jacket in five minutes,” she said.
Now she has to fulfill orders – lots of them.
“I think over 200 people have contacted me in the last two days,” Bosley said.
To score like Burrow, she needs a good teammate. Her boyfriend, Sam Ballman, follows the controls.
“Yesterday in the car I started sobbing because I was so grateful and overwhelmed to have received so much love, especially for something like my art. It’s amazing,” Bosley said.
Bosley will no doubt be glued to TV on Sunday in his Burrow jacket. If you want to see more of his work, you can check out his Instagram page (@mpb_paints).
