Artist Jason Mathias, specializing in realistic marine life art, has created a stunning piece for this year's Big Rock Tournament. The original artwork, a vivid and awe-inspiring image of our tournament's namesake, the beloved blue marlin, will be auctioned off at the Saturday Awards Banquet. In the past, the original pieces have sold to the Big Rock winner. In 2013, the Sensation and crew purchased that year's original piece for $15,000 before donating it to the Crystal Coast Hospice House where it now hangs in the nurses station.

Jason Mathias, this year's talented artist, will be on hand at all Big Rock events to showcase his art, as well as other original pieces including his marlin phone cases commissioned by OtterBox.
