When I transitioned from a stand-alone blog to the Facebook page I began to focus more on creating digital artwork celebrating our boys of winter and their achievements. This one was made to welcome Sidney Crosby back from a core injury that kept the Captain sidelined for more than a month. I really love playing with textures and depth of field as it creates an almost visceral experience and helps form a bond between subject and viewer. Special attenion was paid to Sid's shoulders and the C on his jersey and in the Typography.
