Andrew McCutchen got the E:60 treatment on Tuesday, as ESPN and Buster Olney dug into the life of the star outfielder who is leading the Pittsburgh Pirates as they become a winner for the first time in 20 years.

Here's an interesting fact we learned about McCutchen: He's quite the artist. He says he "doodles a little bit," but he's obviously better than that. Drawing is something he picked up as a kid, he says, and something he still does in hotel rooms and on plane flights. You'll see in the video above that he draws the Pirates logo while being interviewed by Olney.

After the E:60 piece aired, a graphic designer named Todd Radom — who has done a ton of sports logo work — challenged Cutch to draw an older, more complicated (and frankly, much cooler) Pirates logo. And that's when McCutchen proved he's much, much better than a doodler. Here's what happened:

All right, Cutch, we got one for you: Can you draw what PNC Park would look like with a National League pennant?
