Portraits for Robb Report, ESPN, Adweek and more…

I have been working away on portraits and haven’t posted a portrait roundup in a while, so here is a look at some of the portraits I’ve been working on in the last 6 months or so. It’s always fun to get to draw so many faces!

Outdoor Life Road Trip Postcards

I had the chance to illustrate some fun and colourful postcards for Outdoor Life for a feature about hunting and travel/road trips. Each card required a certain number of images to represent the location, some touristy things to do and the type of hunting to be done there. This was a ton of work but I love how the whole package came together.

Portraits for TIME 100 – 2016

I am very happy to share some portraits I did for the 2016 TIME 100 issue. I illustrated over 20 portraits for the TIME 100 issue last year (see here), and was excited to get the opportunity to do even more portraits this year.

This is a bit of a departure from my usual portrait style in that I was asked to add full color, instead of my usual two tone approach. It was a lot of fun to try and I’m really happy with how they turned out.

Kevin Durant t-shirt for Nike

durant_shirt_1

This was a total dream job from a little while back that I just kept forgetting to post. I was contacted to illustrate a drawing of NBA superstar Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder for a Nike t-shirt. The idea was to show him as an old school weather man, nice plaid jacket matched with basketball shorts, pointing at a map of the United States indicating some of the cities he’ll play where he’ll make it rain jump shots, make some buckets, etc… Kind of a silly idea, but it was a fun project. It took a while from the final to the actual production of the shirt and I think it looks pretty great.

I grew up wearing a lot of illustrated basketball t-shirts so this was always something I hoped to do one day.

They might be hard to track down at a sports store but if you want to own one I managed to find a couple new ones on eBay.
