    Stan Chow's Djokovic in the New Yorker

    This week's New Yorker features an illustration of Novak Djokovic by Stan Chow for a profile on the tennis player tied to the U.S. Open. 

    Chow kept with his usual head-and-shoulders composition, but watched YouTube videos and sifted through Google Images to develop it. "Eventually, I decided to do the portrait of him serving from above," Chow explained, "as it looked pretty dynamic; however, there were a good few drafts before I got to the final version." He made the artwork on Adobe Illustrator: "I only use a mouse to illustrate ... I say this as most people assume I use a graphics tablet."

    Chow himself isn't an avid tennis fan, though he does tune in now and again. "Being a Brit, I generally wait to see if Andy Murray makes it into a semifinal, and then my interest picks up." Fighting words!
