  • 2004 Poster: Syracuse Football


    Syracuse Football

    Right away I knew this was the poem I wanted to illustrate. I've always been a huge sports fan and interested in sports illustration. Plus, I like that the poem was by the old head coach of the Syracuse football team. I like the poem because it's simple, to the point, and gives you a feeling for the Dome experience. No matter what the weather is like outside, it's always an amazing atmosphere inside.

    I wanted to depict the interior of the Dome, as well as its exterior, to capture that. I also wanted to depict some football players, but no one in particular. I decided on a montage approach to depict all these elements. The football field turning blue and streaky at the bottom, brings the viewer to an exterior view of the Dome.
