Recently I was considered for a boxing assignment. It was after Smokin' Joe Frazier passed away. The possible assignment had me looking through my files. On a secondary note; over my lifetime it's been a common thing to see my last name misspelt as Frazier. It's a backhanded compliment. Boxing, it's one of the sports subjects that I've dealt with quite a few times. Some of my illustrations I've punched out honouring the Pugilist.
In 2007, I was approached by Ogilvy & Mather Chicago to work on the illustrations for the World Boxing Championships. Interesting assignment, and the design & creative team were great to work with. The assignment included vector art for ceratin applications, and traditional oil painted work. A 3D piece was developed from my sketches. Tickets, programs, posters, bus, busstop, and venue applications were employed.
