I had the opportunity to create artwork to promote ESPN's coverage of the MLS Western Conference Finals and MLS Cup as well as a very special farewell piece to Landon Donovan, the greatest American soccer player of all time, acknowledging his MLS career achievements.
Each piece is slightly different in style and handling, but feels as if there is a loose continuity between all .
There was added significance and a special honor in creating these pieces as they represented the final 3 games of Landon Donovan's professional career, who has arguably been the greatest American soccer player of all time.

Since we began in April 2011, we have posted new basketball work each and every day. Including work not only from ourselves but a number of of regularly contributing artists as well. In October 2012 we held our very first gallery show, featuring work from more than 2 dozen artists from all over the world with partial proceeds donated to a local charity with donations from Homage Clothing, Great Lakes Brewing Company and the Cleveland Cavaliers. We're currently preparing for our second show in Boston at the end of April.
"Battle For the Best Song of the Millennium" was a completely arbitrary tournament constructed by the Grantland staff, featuring 64 of what they deemed to be the most important songs with no sort of guidelines, rules or regulations.
I was tasked with creating individual art for each one of the songs, boiling each one down to it's most indentifiable elements; whether it be a memorable scene from the a music video, or a representation of the artist itself.
With just over a week to complete the project, the artistic style that resulted was simple and clean in order to efficiently meet the deadline, but was well received by many and requested to be implemented again in future assignments.
The entire project can be viewed here, with links to the other pages here.
