Philadelphia City Paper
TOM - I provided the cover art for this weeks Philadelphia City Paper. I was asked to create an illustration of Philly's pitcher, Cole Hamels in this classic Superman stance. The challenge for this was to capture the likeness of somebody that's not terribly recognizable. Other than being tall and thin, he has a very 'ordinary' face and facial features, not much to take advantage of, like a big nose, or a gap between his teeth. With that being said, I don't feel like I really nailed it, but I had fun with creating the rest of the piece. If you're in the Philadelphia are, pick one up, it's on stands now.
