Soooo,

The Yankees ended up losing badly to the Rangers, which sucks.
But none the less I will continue doing portraits of my favorite Yankee players.
Here's Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera.







Up next....Mickey Mantle.

Andy Pettitte

Hello,

Decided to do a series of illustrations on
some of my favorite Yankee players of all time.

First up is Andy Pettitte, who's best know for his intimidating stare towards the
hitter before every pitch.





Hoping that he gets the opportunity to take the mound again for game 7.

PIG!

Hello,

About two weeks ago I met up with Alex Cutler, to talk about making a
promotional Comic for the film PIG written and directed by Henry Barrial.
The deadline was a tight one and everybody involved
in the project
seemed to have pulled an all nighter at some point or another, but we managed to pull it off.
Needless to say I am very happy with the result and it was a lot of fun to work on.
Here's the results!

this past weekend I wish I could have been there.
The pictures look awesome.

Spring Street Studios

Hello,

Went to spring street studios last Saturday to get some drawing done.
The space is really great and I was pretty happy with my drawings.



This was my first attempt at oil pastels, I have to say it was very enjoyable.

La Murciélaga y El Asesino

Art: Nico Di Mattia

Hello,


A couple of months ago I contacted the incredibly talented Argentinian Illustrator Nico Di Mattia, because I had stumbled upon his little project called "La Muerciélaga", a quarterly Illustration and Cartooning magazine packed with amazing talent mostly from Argentina. It is amazing how many great and talented artists are out there working at their craft everyday, many of whom you may never see or hear about in this broad market. A couple of weeks later Nico asked me to be a part of "La Murciélaga" #3. I have to say it is a great honor to be a part of this issue, work in it is top notch and hopefully I can one day meet all of these artists in person.

"La Muercielaga" comes out today in Argentina, I only wish I could be there, since there are having a big release party down there.

Below is my contribution titled "Il Asesino", I'll be making more of these so stay tuned.

Hola,

Hace unos meses atras contacte al talentoso Illustrador argentino, Nico Di Mattia, me había tropezado con su proyecto titulado "La Murciélaga", una revista trimestral de Ilustración y Comics. Es increíble el número de grandes artistas trabajando todos los dias en su arte, muchos de los que nunca se verán o escucharán gracias a cuán vasto es el mercado en que vivimos hoy en día. Unas semanas más tarde, Nico me contacto para que fuera parte de "La Murcielaga" #3. Tengo que decir que es un gran honor ser parte de esta revista y espero algún día poder conocer en persona a todos los grandes artistas con los que estaré compartiendo las páginas de "La Murciélaga".

"La Muercielaga" sale a la venta hoy en Argentina, mi único deseo es estar allí hoy, ya que estarán tirando un "release party".


Abajo está mí contribución a la revista titulado "Il Asesino", manténganse sintonizados ya que habrá más de "Il Asesino" pronto.

Union Sq


Went out drawing today and these couple of drawings felt very natural to me.
There's nothing better when you draw than when you just go into this weird state of mind,
where your drawing feels very unconscious but at the same time you are incredibly focused on your subject matter.
Hopefully I can tap into this same state of mind when I work on my illustrations as well.
That would be fantastic.

No hay nada mejor que cuando estás dibujando tu mente entra en este estado básicamente como un trance.
En el cual no estás consiente de lo que estás dibujando pero a la misma a vez estás completamente sincronizado con tu sujeto.
Espero lograr entrar en este estado mientras trabajo en mis ilustraciones, seria algo surreal.

Making the Ultimate Wiffle Ball Guide

Hello,



So back in September of '09 I was contacted by Michael Hermann and Perrie Briskin over at Wicked Cow, Inc. about doing some spot illustrations for their upcoming Wiffle Ball book. Now that the book is out, I got the OK from Michael to post some of the work I did for his book. But first I gotta say it was a lot of fun working on this book and the people over at Wicked Cow were nothing but spectacular in the way they treated me through out the whole process. But the biggest treat of this whole thing was the fact that I got to go to the Wiffle Ball Factory in Connecticut and just draw the whole time I was up there.


So here is some of the work I did for the book, some of it didn't make it in to the final edit of the book, (like the machines pictured above and the pitch trajectory illustration) but I am very happy with all the work I did.


Pitching Grips, Scuffing, Taping and Knifing.

The Science of Wiffle Ball, the Bernouili Effect, the Magnus Effect, and the Vortexes of air that forms inside

The Masters Tournament

Hello;

Decided to do a quick Tiger Woods illustration since he teed off yesterday. I wanted to challenge myself and go from start to finish in as little time as possible just to see what would happen. My goal was to show the amount of scrutiny that he will be under while the tournament is taking place by positioning him in front of a giant wall of spectators. Don't know if it works, but I kind of like it. We'll see in a couple of days though...
