The Saga: Mayweather Jr. Vs Pacquiao

 May 2, 2015 THE DAY! The Mayweather and Pacquaio fight of the century, i cannot miss this fight and of course we at the newspaper cannot let this pass without a hype. My Chris Ware-inspired page is the first to come out in the series of graphics that Times of Oman is going to publish. 

If you are unfamiliar with the drama behind this fight, I hope this graphic can enlighten you to the soap-opera-like of boxing. One of the reason why this is a match to watch is because it  has been dragging for years with a lot of bickering, drama and suspense for both parties. It's about time this should already happen.

This comic type graphic is a timeline of the prolonged boxing negotiations. 

It all started in 2007




Pacquaio, Mayweather and The Great Mills Lane

The people behind the two superstars
These people are the ones  who ought to be credited for making this fight a reality. They are as important as the two superstars from the marketing hand to the boxer's trainers.

Did I miss out on anything?? Let me know. :)

The Colombian Hottie, James

The day after Colombian midfielder made headlines with his World Cup 5-goal record we made an article about the new 22 year old sensation James Rodriguez. Not to mention he is kind of a heartthrob, in my opinion and in so many other girls around the globe. He is now known as King James, more like a super hottie James. hehehe

World Cup Semi-finals (a tile magazine cover)

For the World Cup semi-finals we have decided to make one artwork for the two-day match and cut them half for each day. A pretty clever idea i must say! So my task was to come up with the artwork.

As for the style of the illustration, my design director took inspiration from Cleon Peterson's works. We all agreed that it was a good direction and would definitely make sense. We wanted to a bloody battle, almost merciless. Using only limited colors representing the each teams.

July 8 magazine cover
July 9 magazine cover

This is the original artwork with the bleed

And then this is what happens if you put the two magazine covers together! :)
