“Gainesville on game day is crazy-hot, wet and loud. Roads are shut down; fans are everywhere and everything is focused on the game. In the stadium, it is even hotter and the fans are so loud you can hear the crowd for miles.” 

Like you, local Gainesville artist Ashley Gillen loves hot, wet & loud game days in Gainesville. She grew up here, in the heat, watching this land-locked Florida city become The Swamp on Saturdays in the late summer and early fall every year.

Ashley illustrated your Gainesville game day stories for Mayor’s new Saturdays in The Swamp polo. Ashley’s wearable artwork radiates the essence of Gainesville game days wherever you wear it. 

In a series of digital ink pen drawings, Ashley chose a whimsical style for the orange and blue motifs of the Gainesville game days you love to release the emotions of your story with unparalleled detail, as if you, the Mayor of Gainesville, are there, in the story:

Navigating endless rows of orange & blue canopies, tailgates and RVs with an endless list of your extended football family.

Hollering & chomping with ninety-thousand of your closest friends so loud they can hear you in Georgia.

Shutting down the bars with your old college crew in the last few hours you have to behave like twenty-year-olds.
