Phi Slama Jama was the nickname given to the University of Houston's men's basketball teams from 1982 to 1984. Coined by former Houston Post sportswriter Thomas Bonk in a January 3, 1983 article, the nickname was quickly adopted by the players and even appeared on team warmup suits by the middle of the 1982–83 season. The teams were coached by Guy V. Lewis and featured future Hall of Fame and NBA Top 50 players Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler. "Texas's Tallest Fraternity" was especially known for its slam dunking and explosive, fast-breaking style of play.

When I saw the Harriss spiral, this is what I thought of. Like every reference, it's not the perfect guide for every face on the planet, but used as a general tool, I like how it lines up. I drew the face side first; the spiral came once all the box guides were in. I didn't want to draw a face that fit the spiral, but rather see how well the spiral fits a mashup of human features. I love where the jaw lines up on the second, smaller spiral, but that's a lot of work just to get one measurement. If you're going to use the second spiral for more than the corner of the jaw, then I would say it's worth it: There are a ton of reference points on this thing. A modern-day blueprint was the idea behind the design, with the hope of showing up nicely under a black light.
