ESPN commissioned me to create illustrative icons for their Photo Issue. They wanted me to incorporate elements from photographic tools (both old and new) to the icons.
My solution was to combine sports and photography in a witty & quirky manner:
1. American Football. The QB throws an “eye ball”
2. Swimming. Film strip that’s a pool.
3. Baseball. A shutter homerun.
4. Soccer. A goal towards a polaroid.
5. X-games. Grinding over a lens.
6. Basketball. He dunks on a goal post out of a camera tripod.
7. Various sports. A film strip that works as a boxing ring, running track, pole vault bar and a tennis net.
I worked with Keir Novesky for this one.

Love that boxer. This is incredible.
like the style!
So classy. Congrats on the amazing client, too.
ridicule, absolute ridicule!
I wish you did animation, I'd love to see that swing in motion for the baseball player or just a still of the aperture rotating, I can hear the Home Run Bat sound in my head. Looks great!
So, so good.
I applaud your use of 49ers colors for your American Football illustration. Unless it's Redskins. Regardless, great work!
These are so great, Dan. Was a pleasure working with you on them.
I'll make sure our paths cross again soon.

So cool characters.
@Dan Matutina this is so good. Love this set.
