ESPN commissioned me to illustrate their football stats section during NFL regular season. That means 3 illustrations every week (just a couple of days deadline!) telling stories for each game or player.
The result of this challenging and extremely fun project is 60 illustrations and "action" portraits from kick-off to SuperBowl. Art Direction by Chin Wang and Christopher Delisle.
Here are are some of my favourites with links to the published pieces and my process at the end...enjoy!
