Okay, I might be alittle ahead of myself, but it’s almost that snowboarding time o’year (even tho I’ve never snowboarded, I’m stoked!)…never too early for a snowboarding illo…also, check out this interview with street-cred-megastar Shaun White, says about doing a gazillion interviews a day, “…it’s cool, but it’s also a lot of pressure, ‘cuz I don’t want to say something that makes me sound like an idiot and then have people think that all snowboarders are idiots. I don’t want to wreck what snowboarding is.” Snowboarding rocks! (Sports Illustration #49)

Why is a football called a pigskin? And why are sports balls (like this football) fun to draw, ink and watercolor? On the first question, I didn’t know…check out Wiki Answers and the Straight Dope…kinda cool…on the drawing one, it’s just fun to try to capture the feel, the essence of the ball, it’s everything to the ball-sports fanatic. If you like rugby, football, soccer, basketball, baseball…etc. it’s all about the ball…(Sports Illustration #48)

One of my favorite illustration and t-shirt design projects this year has been for the world class, celebrity Mets and SNY TV broadcast team of Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling (aka. Gary, Keith and Ron). Lynn Cohen, wife of Mets play-by-play broadcaster Gary Cohen and director of the Pitch In For A Good Cause Foundation contacted me late last year with some ideas she had for their new website GaryKeithandRon.com, to benefit several of the broadcaster’s favorite charities. It’s a fun, interactive and informative website helping some very meaningful causes. Check it out, buy a t-shirt (over 12 designs, thousand already sold!) and pitch in! Terrific work Gary, Keith, Ron and Lynn!
Here’s the t-shirt design for Gary’s signature saying “It’s Outta Here!” (click to enlarge)

Okay, I’m watching Oprah’s special today getting amazed all over again by the Olympics…especially the gymnasts (the fly through the air turns and flips and landings, whoa!) Then later I checked out the Monday Night football game…these football players look like big lumbering cardboard cereal boxes compared to the body strength and agility of these tiny little Nastia Liukins and Shawn Johnsons…who’s stronger? Even star running back Adrian Peterson looked slow and stiff compared to these girls…

How many offensive linemen can you name? It doesn’t matter if your team has the greatest QB ever, with a weak O-Line, he’s gonna look like a confused beginner. The offensive line is the key to making the QB great and the whole offense come together. I did this illustration inspired by Jeff Saturday, a three-time pro bowler and Peyton Manning’s security-blanket-center who damaged his MCL and probably won’t play this season. Good luck Peyton, and heal quick Saturday! As we kick-off the NFL season let’s have a cheer for the unsung heroes, all the O-Linemen (Browns’ Steinbach, Joe Thomas, Dallas’ Andre Groude, Patriot’s Matt Light, Charger’s Marcus McNeil, Nick Hardwick…etc.)! (Sports Illustration #47)
Here’s the ink sketch (click to enlarge)…
