US Open Merchandise

Back in December of 2009, I received a call to be one of the three artists to design the poster and logo graphics for the 2010 US Open Tennis Championships. I began with doing about 15 pencil sketches and then produced 15 color pieces. After the reviewing the art, the client narrowed it down to 8 pieces that they wanted to complete. I made changes and correction to those 8 and then the client said that they wouldn’t decide who would get the project until two weeks after the New Year.

Well, two weeks later I got the call from Richard Solomon that the committee had picked 2 of my pieces of artwork for the Poster and Merchandise for the event. It's very exciting to have done so much. The US Open Tennis Championships has the largest viewing audiences of all sporting events, including the World Series and the Superbowl. Take a look at what they came up with:
