It’s that time of year for Wimbledon! Tennis coverage begins at 7am EST Monday July 2 on ESPN.

My drawing is of a lady tennis player getting ready to serve an ace. Tennis is my favorite sport to sketch. Have you noticed?

Happy 4th of July, everybody!

This is my action drawing of a player in mid toss during a serve. Where’s the tennis ball you ask? It is thrown so high that it is out of the frame. The higher the toss, the faster the ball will hurl towards the opponent. All top players, like Sharapova, for example, strive to win free points by achieving a well-placed ace.

What Easter means to me is spring and warm weather.  Today is very mild in the Northeast.  And warm weather means tennis.  Here is my sketch of a player getting ready to serve the ball. Happy Easter!

The Australian Open is on now which means hours of watching Tennis Channel and ESPN2.  The Open will run two weeks.  This is a sketch of the Croation, Cilic, serving.  I always wanted to capture the motion of a serve.  Cilic is a very tall slender player at 6 foot 6 inches.  He is so tall that it looks like I’m exaggerating his extension.
