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).
