Edel Rodriguez
Series for ESPN column

For several months, I've been contributing to a regular sports column written by Chris Jones on the back page of ESPN magazine.  The topics cover a variety of sports and deal with many of the issues of the day.   The format calls for a long horizontal which has allowed me to try some different compositional things from the usual vertical format.  Some of the images and details are below.   Thanks to design director John Korpics and designer Meaghan Fitzpatrick for the opportunity to work on these.
