Fan Art Friday – The Man in Blue, Yondu!

This week I am paying tribute to the man in blue himself, Mr. Yondu Udonta. I think we can all agree that his presence in recent blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has inspired us all. This seemingly bad-ass dude definitely won our hearts by showing his softer side. With Father’s Day having just passed, I am reminded of the sacrifices a parent makes for the love of a child. This was never better represented than when Yondu gave his own life to spare that of his surrogate son, Peter Quill. Who didn’t shed an emotional tear during Yondu’s funeral as the Ravager’s returned to give him proper honors. It was an epic moment of both joy and heartbreak. Kudos to Michael Rooker for his portrayal of a character that made us laugh, made us cry, made us feel. To that end, I give you Yondu…
