1. I got engaged back in February on everyone’s favorite live Canadian Cable Television/Podcast basketball show: The Basketball Jones. It was pretty amazing. Everyone there from Tas to Skeets and Trey Kerby were the best at making fun of me. But the person I need to thank the most are producer Matt Osten, who orchestrated the whole thing after I sent him an inquiring e-mail about proposing. Also thanks to the person at TBJ who makes the graphics because they made a lovely image of some pictures of my now fiance, Amy, and I together (I’ll post it later today).

    Anyway, it’s taken me awhile to post this because I couldn’t rewatch it without being very emotional, as it is currently one of my top three happiest moments of my life. So enjoy my happiness and queue the video to start around the 16:00 mark where the proposal beings. There’s a little more after the crossfire segment where they called us and got the yes/no.

     
  2. So I applied for this internship with the Trail Blazers I most likely will not get. I love this team too much, this is probably why. It has nothing to do with my lack of a paying job in the illustration/design field, nothing at all. Tune in for more portland blazers trail trailblazers nicolas batum tbj sexy fathers etc drawings. I’m going to let my old domains expire and repost the work here in some long reflective posts.
I hope one day to be featured on gotemcoach.com, the basketball jones, and maybe your little sister’s Nicolas Batum/Ricky Rubio geocities fan site. I’ll get there by posting as much as I can.

  3. My shitty coverage of the Nike Hoop Summit in which I get drunk off two beers at a McMenamins, go to the highest profile high school basketball game buzzed, and then unexpectedly meet @freedarko and @kpelton thanks to @blazersedge. It is also at IGOHARDNOW where I also write sometimes.

  5. About

    First and foremost this is a sports illustration blog. Secondly, writing about sports and/or illustrations, occasionally some other stuff will happen. I’ll be posting original illustrations Monday through Friday, at least once a day.

    If you’re still reading and want more information here you go: I am a Trail Blazers maniac, sports writing aficionado, and illustrator. I got my BFA in Illustration from Pacific NW College of Art in 2008 or 2009. This is my first creative endeavor I’ve followed through on, there are many other failures.
