ESPN Cover attempt

Got to try for a ESPN cover back in January, finally got a hold of a print edition.
Subject was "New Rules for the New Year", it was about changing 48 rules in sports to make it better for the fans.

I didn't get it and I didn't deserve too! Below is why.

Look at this brilliant idea from Jason Lee. Why didn't I think of that!
Perfect and so simple, which is the hardest.

At least I got inside though, with the other 4 artists.
I was honored to have been in the running with Rodrigo Corral, since he is such an amazing book designer, his cover (above mine) is my second favorite.

Just for fun, here's some of the ideas (there were more) I sent in.

Thanks to Ed Mann for even considering me for the cover.
