Michael Phelps Collab Illustration!

Aug 26th, 2008

This is about Michael Phelps and the dismal state of the athlete recruitment programme in the US. For ESPN.

So Sam helped me with this one a bit, so I thought it was only fair to credit him in the mag. Our first co-credit! I couldn’t decide which background was best, so I sent the AD (Siung Tjia) all three. I sometimes do that and let the AD decide… I can’t tell if they like that or not. I don’t think they mind too much. They went with the darker rose background (above).
