Are you a man who is constantly frustrated, but unsure where to channel that pent up energy? Do you feel like a force beyond your control is leading you astray, yet you refuse to ask for directions? Is your personal compass always pointing North, even when you’re facing South? If you answered yes to any of these…
Justin Bieber, apparently bored with apologizing in song and antagonizing Post Malone, has started exploring a new medium. He took to Instagram recently to present some visual art, in the salacious person of a NSFW tomahawk-wielding manga nymph. While I cannot endorse his choice of material—is this not just an adult…
Over at Bleacher Report, animator Case Jernigan has made artistic renderings of some of this season’s most memorable soccer tricks and feints. The results are pretty awesome:
Suburban dirtballs of the 1980s are a lost culture, worthy of academic study, that disappeared abruptly, leaving mysterious artifacts for future generations to work over. Think of them as, say, the ancient Mayans, only with mullets.
It’s hard to imagine another goal in this season’s Premier League topping that marvelous juggling number Tottenham’s Dele Alli scored a few weeks ago, so it’s only right that this work of art be recreated in another work of art—this time done in crayon. It’s so good both ways.
Just look at Mathieu Flamini’s face here. Sure, his mouth is like that since he’s worried Yaya Touré’s shot might hit the back of the net, but he’s also gotta be like “Daaaamn, that’s the sweetest stroke I’ve ever seen.” Check this out:
The Tom Brady courtroom sketch artist received 700 emails that day. “Things like, ‘you’re an A-hole’ and ‘you shouldn’t go to work drunk.’”
Courtroom sketch artist Jane Rosenberg caught hell for drawing Tom Brady like a gloomy zombie in his Ballghazi hearing in New York Federal Court earlier this month, but when the Patriots quarterback returned for another hearing today, Jane was ready for redemption.
Our pal Shawn visited the National Sports Collectors Convention this weekend and wrote up some of his strangest findings over at Hall of Very Good. One item, however, caught our eye: this oil painting by Justyn Farano of the famous Nolan Ryan-Robin Ventura brawl that took place 22 years ago. We’d hang this in our…
Wondering what gift to get the English soccer hater in your life that already has everything? How about a $635,000, 10' x 7' tribute to English soccer failure, which just so happened to be sold off to an unknown bidder yesterday:
Some of these alternate helmet designs, created by artist and graphic designer Dylan Young, are cool as hell. Others, not so much. They're all really fun to look at, though, and isn't that what matters?
Depending on your age, artist Peter Chen's aesthetics, as much as his choice of players, will well some deep nostalgia in you. And if not—well, maybe you can just appreciate Chen's dozens of gold-foil Jumbotron portraits for the facial hair.
You probably haven't thought about Desmond Mason since he last played in the NBA in 2009, or perhaps even before then. The New York Post has an update on his life, and as it turns out, Mason is building a pretty successful second career as an artist:
Designer Mark Kenny is back with more redesigns of sports logos, this time merging NBA logos with some of our favorite nostalgic video game characters. They're all really cool, and most even surpass the originals. Why can't we go ahead and make Raiden the official Thunder mascot?
Who says ballin' stops when you reach 65? Or even 70. Especially when you live in the land of milk and honey?
The beauty of the Internet is that it offers up surprises and treats. Never know when you're going to find something worth remembering. I was toolin' around my Tumblr feed the other day when I ran across a beautiful illustrated piece by an artist named Katherine W. Wirick. Another talented picture-maker, Summer Anne…
Well, this here's something nobody else thought of doing to honor Derek Jeter. The artist Kevin Champeny has built a sculpture/picture of Jeter out of 10,000+ hand cast 1/2" diameter baseballs. Ya heard?
So yesterday, an old editor emailed me with the above photo and funny story. The MTA, New York City's subway and bus system, is selling a new poster for Brooklyn's Grand Army Plaza, a location that serves both as a subway station and the entrance to New York's iconic Prospect Park. The MTA commissioned an artist, Rich…
