Here's a fun one. The commissioner wanted to incorporate his beloved heap of a truck into the illustration...a two-tone Ford Ranger with the big "R" missing on the back gate...hence the nickname, "FOD". Add a lovely girl in a throwback Penguins sweater and Lord Stanley's fabled cup, and you've got a weird, wonderful image!

Tonight's Game 6 of the World Series, and the Phillies will try to stave off elimination and force a Game 7 tomorrow night. In that spirit, enjoy this recent commission I did for a woman, which she presented to her husband as a wedding gift a couple weeks ago. That story's cool enough, but it gets better: The commissioner, whose likeness is represented in the illustration, is actually a Yankees fan!
