Golf, for the New York Times

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to work for the New York Times; a publication I've dreamed of working with for a long time. I was a bit nervous because the piece was running as the cover of a special section for the PGA Tour, but the art directors there were very positive, supportive, and great to work with.

The original piece, 9.5x24", pencil & digital

The piece was to inaugurate a new elite golf course in Jersey City called Liberty National. Built by major golf professionals, it's situated in such a place on the river that is has a perfect view of the Statue of Liberty. The AD wanted the statue to the main focus of the piece, and as we went on with sketch revisions the piece got more airy and atmospheric (which is totally awesome).

Sketching While Away

I've had a fair share of traveling this season, but thankfully last week was spent relaxing in New Jersey with family. While waiting to post some new work, I thought I would post some sketches I did while away. I've been trying to work with ink lately, so most of these sketches are my very early experiments with what is, for me, a new medium. In any case, enjoy.

8-Bit & Beyond, Tonight

Just a head's up, the image below will be on display with lots of great video game inspired works at Brave New Worlds in Philadelphia. This opens today, Friday the 7th, and is up until the end of the month. So far we've gotten a lot of great coverage, so here's hoping the turn out is just as great.
