Making the Ultimate Wiffle Ball Guide


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 Masters Tournament


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...
