Art Director Andi Beierman called from The Texas Monthly and asked me to illustrate Tennessee Titan's Quarterback Vince Young. I love drawing sports heroes, especially when there is a dark twist. Questions of Vince Young's mental ability to handle disappointment plus his physical injuries have sidelined his season.
I sketched a quick layout of Vince Young against the dark Tennessee skyline and Titans Stadium trying to create tension between the skyline and the figure. I refined his face as a colored pencil drawing, as a study for the final inking.
