Delta Chi Cow is an original illustration drawn on the Delta Chi Cornerstone Pledge Book for his friend and fellow fraternity brother John. Nate joined the Delta Chi fraternity as a Freshman at Southwest Missouri State University (SMSU) and created this reference sketch for the final drawing as well as painted a version of the cow on a Delta Chi pledge paddle. Nate was 18 years old when he created this artwork at SMSU in Springfield, Missouri.

I asked Nate to do this drawing in my pledge book. He sketched it in about 10 minutes and then took another two years to add the color. That was just the pace at which he worked. He could have finished the whole thing in about an hour, but I’m glad he didn’t. I have fond memories of giving him hell to get it finished. I think it costs me a couple of beers, but well worth it. He put the same “cow” on my pledge paddle for me.
