I love the U.S. Open. I’m a tennis fan, and tennis doesn’t get any better than the U.S. Open! So last November, when the USTA, the governing body that runs the U.S. Open, contacted me about putting together sketches for “theme art” (posters, banners, t-shirts, etc.) for this year’s tournament, I was floored. I wrote about this at the time. They hired me and three other artists to come up with ideas, and even though they didn’t pick mine, it was a fun experience, they were terrific to work with, and I hope they contact me again this November for next year’s Open! (I’ll be contacting them, too, just in case!)
To celebrate the U.S. Open starting this week, I’m showing off another of the sketches I did for them. Enjoy the tournament, everyone!
