The Wimbledon finals happens this weekend. Venus Williams will try to make history by winning the women’s finals at the age of 37. On the men’s side, Federer will also return to the finals as a 36-year-old. Both players are defying the odds by showing the sport that 30 is the new 20.

My drawing, today, is inspired by Nadal’s aggressive forehand stance.

We are midway through the Wimbledon Championships and there is much more great Round 3 matches to come, including the big four – Nadal, Murray, Djokovic and Federer.

My drawing shows a player swinging a forehand motion with heavy topspin. Don’t underestimate smaller players in tennis. They can pack a big punch!

With the dog days of summer upon us, it is definitely a good time to get outdoors. My sketch today shows a bass pro angler in action, getting on a lunker of a fish.

Happy 4th of July everybody!

Although French Open is done, Wimbledon is coming up, just around the corner! I have been on a figural drawing kick lately. In art, it’s good to keep loose with pencil. My sketch shows a player, hustling fast to make a swinging a two-handed backhand.

The French Open comes to a close this weekend. For the women, I am rooting for Simona Halep because she’s been working so hard for so long. And this is the farthest she has reached in a major. On the men’s side, I hope Nadal wins the final. He is after all the king of clay.

My sketch shows a player preparing for a forehand swing.

The players are midway through the French Open. Only 64 players remain after round 2. My drawing shows the set up stance for a two-handed backhand.

My sketch is of a player in action, serving the ball. The ball is thrown so high that it is out of frame. French Open tennis is happening now. Don’t miss out on the action!
