The story of how this happened can be found here. I carved some pumpkins for the FS1 set at CenturyLink when it turned out they'd be staying for the quick playoff turnaround. It was super fun but my wrists were sore for a few days. I haven't carved that much in a day since college.

Also, this is the closet by proxy that I've ever been to my celebrity crush Rob Stone. Be still my heart.

Also I made sure all were marked with #YNYA (the motto of Nos Audietis- a Sounders podcast) for good luck.

Have no fear

This guy. Although we love him, he didn't score all season. UNTIL the moment when these tired Sounders were about to have to play extra time in a mid-week knockout round game. He saved us in the 88th minute, and it sent Centurylink into a frenzy. In the post-game locker room, Schmetzer told the team to "have no fear... because Nelson Valdez is on our team."

How to be Mr. Sounder

This guy (Zach Scott) is in his last season with the rave green. Last time I drew him--riding a horse--he responded on Twitter noting that his normal mode of transport was a dragon. Noted.

It's a twister

No cyclones actually touched down in Seattle, but there were warnings I swear. We like Seattle Sunshine though, whatever form it takes.

This one's called "Cyclones only make the Seattle Sounders stronger" and was requested by my friend Chamaine.

Line dancing

This is my fave digital watercolor I've done. It's called: "Our boys stomping and dancing all over that red line" and I drew it on the bus on the way home from the Vancouver away trip. We did it. We are playoff bound and we're not finished yet.

New friends


I went on my first away game adventure to the Vancouver game. Even though I was super shy, I met some new friends- one of whom brought a tiny travel watercolor set! I did this quick drawing at a rest stop and gave it to my friend Kevin who needed some happy to spruce up his temporary home. This is what I love about soccer- this is community of friends that you either know really well or just haven't met yet.

This also marks the last piece that I did with my left/non-dominant hand. It was feasible using actual watercolors and paper with the friction, but it's super annoying to do on the iPad. Plus, the point was to let my hand develop a style without my brain forcing it and getting all precious. I've accomplished that and have something to build on that I'm comfortable with. Moving forward, all will be done with my right/dominant hand unless specified otherwise.

Top watercolor by my friend Dan.

Rave green army

My first official post as a contributor to Sounder at Heart! I'll be drawing and posting hype posts and providing illustrations for different types of articles and events here and there. I'm super excited.
