Who's on the roster for World Cup qualifiers? These guys! Congrats to Jordan Morris and Clint Dempsey on the call up from new coach Bruce Arena. Score some goals, guys.

The Bruin

Meet Will. He's our new bear in charge of scoring goals. When he play's soccer, he scores goals, and we go mental. He also seems to give good hugs.

Snowball for snow games

I love watching MLS. I love when there's drama. This match in Minnesota hosting Atlanta was violently snowy. They busted out the orange ball, and chaos ensued.

This was drawn live while watching the game from the comfort of my warm and tiny Seattle apartment.

It me

Every year I pick a specific outfit or kit for watching Sounders matches.  wear it to the games here at home and out to the pub for away games. This year, it's a dress covered in cats and my champions scarf.

In the first Watercolor Recap of 2017, it's the Deuce show! Clint Dempsey scores the first goal of the Sounders's season. Despite the loss on the road to Houston, it was good to see Clint back out there making an impact when we weren't sure he would return at all.

Posters by the People

My favorite things all in one place! Sounders! Seattle! Mario Brothers! Pizza and donuts!

I was invited by the team to design a poster for the Sounders' first home match of the year as part of the Posters by the People program. So exciting! These typically run as ongoing contests for submissions, but every year they pick a few matches to invite someone to feature.

This was designed completely on the iPad pro with Apple pencil, although at this point I'm wishing I had the bigger version.

How to watch

I'm changing up my contributions to Sounder at Heart this season. Instead of a regular cadence of game-specific hype posts pre-match, I'm going to be doing post-match "Watercolor Recaps" a few days after Sounders matches. In addition, I'll be providing general "how to watch" illustrations showing soccer fans out in the wild enjoying MLS in all the different ways that we do. Sometimes will reference the national channels that MLS can be found on, like (FS1 above, with dreamboat Rob Stone).

MLS on Unimas and UDN.
