A Fate Worse Than Death – Grantland Quarterly

I’m happy to finally be able to share these illustrations that I made for Grantland Quarterly issue 3. The new issue is out now and it’s a great book, beautifully designed.

I illustrated these two boxing poster-inspired pieces based on stories where the writer attended pretty lackluster, boring games between some bottom dwelling teams in the NBA. I drew the top poster first but after I finished they decided to go with a different story about the Wizards and the Raptors.  I played a bit more on the fumbling and sloppy play in the second illustration and kept the format the same.

Hopefully the Raptors will be a bit more fun to watch this season and there won’t be too many more stories written about their mediocrity (who am I kidding).
