Daniel Hertzberg – ESPN The Magazine: The Big Zero

ESPN the Magazine was always a dream client of mine, so it was a pleasure doing a half-pager for them last week. It was for an article about NBA teams that have been very successful this season without any superstars or big names. They actually play as a *gasp* team! I thought it would be fun to show 5-6 players all making up one giant, unstoppable player. Many hours were spent manipulating each arm and leg of each player so it could fit this silhouette. I got away with murder! Sketches (showing some of the process) and the printed page below.

  1. Killer piece! Must have been tricky to fit the players into the body, but I love how you’ve done it, especially with the middle guy whose knees are bent to form the lower torso and the thigh.

  2. This is epic, Dan, awesome job! I can imagine how painstaking that execution must have been,but totally worth it.
