Aside from the title which works with the current team, this is a sneak peek of something that I worked on as a gift. The beauty of having knowledge of programs like Illustrator, Photoshop, and the such means that I can put together something that most people cannot. I had this idea of using some former Knick players (in this case, you see Patrick Ewing above) and combining my love for splatter and brushstroke to create some awesome for a big Knicks fan that I know. I’ll reveal the whole thing after Christmas, but right now I can’t ruin the surprise.
I am also interested in the process done by designers and illustrators, so I would like to share Guy Shield’s illustration. If you want to see more of his work, you can visit his Behance profile here or his site guyshield.com
