The Game Plan

This is an illustration for a trilogy of articles about game-planning for pro, college and high-school football. Stylistically, it doesn't look like something I'd do. I'm not fond of the drop-shadowed, vector illustration-- probably because I'm not very good at it.
...I like to see that the human hand was involved somehow. I'm a total hypocrite, I know, considering I do almost ALL of my work on a computer, but you know what I mean!
...Still, I was pretty happy with it. It's not one of my favorites and it's not designed all that well (that ear, for example, doesn't seem to fit right) but I'll give it a C for effort and efficiency. I started with one quick thumbnail and drew the head in photoshop at the beginning of my shift. I came back to it many hours later and slapped it together before ending my day. No fussing allowed.

The End.
