Usain Bolt

Thanks for your feedback on my work in progress shot everyone! I really appreciate it!

Here's a lunchtime sketch of one of my favorite moments of the Olympics. Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt celebrating way before he even reaches the finish line, and still breaking the world record. He broke two more in the 200m and 4x100 relay before the games were over.

Here's another memorable one:
Cuban TaeKwonDo Olympian kicks referee in the face. What?! Such a horrible thing! Poor guy.
I just wish it wasn't such a funny picture. I dont think I could've posed it any better. The formation of his hands lead me to believe that he was actually a few microseconds late to kung-fu block it, or catch his foot or something.

Well so, to make it relevant to this blog (and so I dont go straight to hell) , I'll try and break down why I think this image works so well. And I'll try to keep the giggling in. Wait. Just. Give me a second........Okay, whew. Here goes

click for bigger image.

I couldn't fit this in the picture but there is also a little bit of overlap on the tie. Which, again, also follows the line of action.

Awful sportsmanship, kinda awesome image.

Yeah man that Usain has a serious case of being all Lionhearty! That Cuban dude seriously has a bad case of being an asshole.

Oh and Ed Juan totally commented on my stupid long-winded Zhivago post!!

It's like Daft Punk is playing at my house! LIve!

Hey Bobby how are you? How's mentor? Sadly I had to put if off yet again... money is super tight and I got the Imageworks internship and had to move to LA. As always, awesome work. I've been trying to look for video of the tae kwon do kick but no luck so far
