Fantasy Football, Super Bowl Edition

To end my Fantasy Football series with a bang, I did a quarter-by-quarter interpretation of the Harbaugh duel.

1st Quarter

2nd Quarter

3rd Quarter Power Outage
According to my Twitter feed, this was either caused by Beyonce or Bane.

3rd Quarter

4th Quarter

As George R.R. Martin says, dark wings bear dark words. Congrats, Baltimore, and let's get 'em next year Niners!

I'm in awe of your work and creativity. Awesome artwork. Consider some NHL matchups. They could have used you instead of that "Guardians" debacle they tried to release 2 years ago.

Austin. I would like to speak with you regarding your amazing artwork and a potential opportunity to bring them to the sports licensed retail world through a company I work with that is already licensed in all leagues. If you are interested in speaking further, please email me at

Hey Austin, I hope you don't mind but I posted your Fantasy Football sketches to Reddit. I've been following your blog for a long time and thought more people should see your sketches.

I gave you credit in the title, and it made the front page. The view count says over a million people viewed the album!

I posted it in two subreddits; pics and nfl, where they have a total of 1,447 comments:

Thanks everyone, particularly Jonah! I guess I should start redditing, that was extremely effective exposure. I owe you a drawing, man. You name it!

Jonah Sidhom said...

Wow, the imgur link almost has 2 million views now. So glad you got the reception you deserve!

and dude, a drawing would be incredible!! I'd be happy with anything from you. I've been following your blog and sketches for so long that this is kind of a surreal situation for me to be in. I'm a huge fan of anything Pixar, especially Toy Story and Ratatouille.

I'm graduating college this May and going back to school for animation, because being an animator has been my dream ever since I can remember. A drawing from you would be such a huge motivation for me!

This would make for a cool story. Jonah gets his start in the industry by giving an already acclaimed artist within the industry a more public exposure.

Either way... Jonah gets a cool pic and Austin gets his brilliant pieces of work out there.
