I recently did some drawings for a brand new kind of digital format for ESPN. It's online only and is a sort of combination of app and online magazine. It has images, text and video. I think it's pretty cool and could be the future for editorial content.
The article is about Pittsburg Pirates pitcher Doc Ellis, who pitched a no-hitter while on LSD in 1970.
Thanks to CD John Korpics and his teriffic team.
Here's the link to see the whole story and the other drawings. One thing I found is that you need to adjust your screen to full view and change the display in order to view the images without them being cropped.

Saw this online the other day Joe. A great format for illustration, and your drawings really made the design.

Joe: You are bringing the future here, man. Here's a great and ingenius way to do multimedia. A slide show that moves when you are ready for it. Maybe this is the best and most web friendly approach yet. Can you tell me what software is involved in this. This is mos' def' a post for my classes this year. Let everybody see this!
