Daniel Hertzberg – Sports Illustrated: “Go for It on Fourth and Multiply”

This was a full-page illustration for Sports Illustrated this week (I think it’s the only illustration in the entire issue too). The article was about the many new faces of coaching staffs in college football. They’re almost entirely behind-the-scenes but they’re now the biggest reason why some college teams are better than others, Alabama Crimson Tide, particularly (we chose Alabama crimson colors for this). A lot of the faces in this were drawn by me (though not well!) and the bodies are all my own. The full spread in layout, sketches and some process are below. I even used my own headphones and elongated the earpiece to look more like a football coach’s.

  1. Holy Cow! This turned out great. So much going on yet so well organized as an image. Love seeing your process, too.
