What initially caught my eye about this panel, were the colors that were featured into it; navy blue background and baby blue writing. The choice of the dark navy blue helped the words and phrases catch the eyes of onlookers much more easier. This panel gives us a look back into the interests of Parker Jr., he was a big Tar Heel fan from his birth til his death as this was the phrase :”I’m a Tar Heel Born, I’m a Tar Heel Bred and when I Die… I’m a Tar Heel Dead”, it was a cut out of all capital letters in the light blue color. Pictures of him are also featured these pictures were placed on top of a red rectangular cut out, with him hold up a camera which shows his interest in photography and videography, him and his friend who made the panel, and another with him playing with his dog. “A special friend” was written in a fire red cut out of all capital letters. All of the words in this panel used the same fabric just in different colors to make it pop enough for others to want to know Parker Jr.’s story.

I’ve always known of the Tar Heels basketball team as I am a fan as well, when reading the letter his friend sent in with the panel I realized he was speaking of the basketball team as well. Initially I thought it was just something he was referred by since he was younger. His birthday is a day before mine, meaning he’s a Gemini, I do alot of research on astrology and I believe that is why I was draw to this panel. We have many things in common as he likes videography, photography and dogs as well. I’m sure as I began to read more into his story I will uncover more interesting facts about him.
