Illustration for GOLF Magazine









I did this about three weeks ago . . . it's out in stores now, so I've got the OK to finally post what I did. This was done for GOLF magazine, an article on how intimidating it is for other golfer's to be paired up with Woods. As soon as I heard what the article was about, this image of looking up at Tiger from the ball's point of view popped into my head.

I only had one week from start to finish on this piece, so there wasn't much time to mess around. The first thing I do on a job like this, is sketch a bunch of small thumbnails, just scribbles really. The next step was photo reference, so I posed some of my friends, took pictures, and then began sketching. The rough version attached here is what I sent to the a.d. to then wait for an OK before I could continue to the final stage. Once I had the OK, I painted the final with photoshop, it was a lot of fun working on this piece I look forward to working with them again!
