New work... “Harry Kane: English Soccer’s Clark Kent”. I teamed up with reporter Jon Clegg, who is expert in all things World Cup, to show you how Harry Kane mastered all the invisible parts of the game that make the difference between a win and a loss. Enjoy the match today and check out the full piece on WSJ.com #harrykane #englandfootball #worldcup #soccer #infographic #illustration

Over the years I’ve saved every concept sketch I’ve made for every assignment I’ve ever been a part of. I have stacks of rough drawings at home for clients going back to around 16 years or so. Concept sketching is one of my favorite parts of the Illustration process. Here are a handful of rough sketches for pieces featured in Field & Stream. Some of these are almost 10 years old. I’ll share more from other gigs soon. #pencil #sketching #roughsketch #illustration #fishart #hunting #flyfishing

New piece in The Wall Street Journal and wsj.com; Is Shohei Ohtani the Best Player in the World? I teamed up with reporters Jared Diamond and @andrewlbeaton to show you why #mlb #losangelesangels #shoheiohtani #pitching #baseball #infographic #vector #illustration

Had some fun with this one. For The Wall Street Journal’s preview of the movie ‘The Meg’ coming out this summer: how the giant Meg compares to other famous sharks in film history. #themeg #megalodon #greatwhite #jaws #mako #findingnemo #sharks

New painting: Steel on the Swing. This commission is a beautiful fish caught swinging an intruder in British Columbia. I wanted to try something a little different with this one, focusing the piece on “the grab” sequence, rather than just the fish alone. That amazing 2-second moment when a big eat breaks the silence of the afternoon. I’m happy with the results. This fish was a real hog, and it was an honor to paint! #steelhead #britishcolumbia #bc #skeena #flyfishing #speycasting #trout #fishart #painting

Today on WSJ.com: James Harden makes more step-back 3pt shots than anyone else in the league. Here’s a look at my sequential diagram. I originally made it under a fast deadline of about a day and a half. I spent some time cleaning it up yesterday and animating into a GIF. I’m happy with how it came out. #nba #houstonrockets #jamesharden #illustration #basketball #vector

Switching up gears to share this new painting of a Westslope Cutthroat trout. This piece has a new special home, transposed on a big wall mural and installed in Casting for Recovery’s national office in Bozeman Montana. If you’re not familiar with Casting for Recovery, they are an amazing organization who’s mission is to help women with breast cancer connect with one another and attend retreats to learn the therapeutic sport of flyfishing. It was an honor to create this for such an amazing place. If you’re in Bozeman, stop by and say hello. #westslopecutthroat #castingforrecovery #bozeman #montana #flyfishing #trout #rainbowtrout #fishart #painting #watercolor at Bozeman, Montana

Next up is “Gone in Two Seconds”; diagramming power and form of the push that kick-starts an Olympic bobsled run. This piece was incredibly hard to pull off in the early stages, but came together really nicely. I probably referenced upwards of 40-50 photos and countless videos from Olympic training and past games to draw the correct form, then break down the sequence into the most important steps. This is one of my favorites #pyeongchang2018 #winterolympics #bobsled #teamusa #infographic #illustration #drawing #vector

Finally getting around to posting some work from the Winter Olympics after chasing deadlines the past few weeks. Here’s a cool piece we did at The Wall Street Journal on how the average finish times in the games have become almost twice as fast as they were decades ago. This means in modern Olympics, milliseconds count. We sprinkled in a few key olympians to watch, and what they do special with their technique that makes them stand out from the competition #pyeongchang2018 #winterolympics #alpineskiing #speedskating #biathlon #infographic #dataviz #illustration #vector @biney.biney @mikaelashiffrin @martinfourcade

Page 2, drawn from my first time using a center pin for steelhead. Here’s a run where we picked a handful of fish. You had to get the drift perfect between two submerged boulders. One or two inches to the right or left and you were off. #sketchbook #fishinglog #steelhead #fishart #ink #moleskine

Bumping this one up from the bottom of my feed. A sketchbook log entry showing a nice steelhead I caught on a centerpin. I spent the first day of my trip on the fly, going zero for zero. River levels rose fast the week before, and were double the cfs they should have been. I met up with @ralph6776 the second day and he handed over his centerpin rod and reel, and after a quick how-to session, forced me to use it for the entire day. We hammered them! This one was my first fish of the day. #steelhead #flyfishing #centerpinning #fishart #ink #sketchbook

Back in November @nyflylife caught his first salmon, winning Field & Stream’s Badge of Honor prize. I painted his catch. #flyfishing #salmon #fishart #ink #onthefly

From the archives: “Suddenly Silver” process. Every piece starts with a story. This one was about two of the best fisherman I know falling into a surprise striper blitz while shad fishing on a big northeast river. The story is followed with a concept sketch, then after, the painting process falls into place. #stripedbass #bassfishing #bass #fishart #fishing #catskills #ink #watercolor #painting #sketch
