If there's anyone who will be under a magnifying glass this NFL season, it's Michael Vick. This illo is for Associated Press's annual NFL Preview page. Our original concept was to have the eagles tearing Vick apart (saying basically nature hates him) but we changed it up a bit to give the guy a chance.

Another fun little note is this illo was completed in just one afternoon (about five hours). Its far from perfect in my eyes, but anyone who's in the business knows sometimes you need to make things work in the time your given. Ironically these type of gigs are usually the most fun and I wouldn't want it any other way.

Good one! I would have preferred him dodging to save his life.

Really cool illustration..and you're completely right..he will definitely be under a magnifying glass..but amazing that the owner is a dog-lover, huh?! Talk about 2nd chances...great work!
