As a tight end with the 2016-2017 New England Patriots, Martellus Bennett won a Super Bowl, but the retired pro football star is really more of a superhero. His superpower is creativity, and his literary and visual empire is just beginning. “No one has ever taught me how to be creative,” says Marty. “It’s just who I am.”
The acclaimed creator joins Mick for Episode 015 of The MICK Show. They discuss his artistic process, his multi-hyphenated career, and why Tom Brady’s flexibility is a metaphor for real-world resilience.
Bennett says: “I don’t ever want to be remembered for playing sports. I want them to say, ‘Oh, and he played football.'”
New episodes of The MICK Show, presented in partnership with @maximmag are released every Wednesday!
