visión de conjunto:Reseña del editor The best of FOOTBALL humor from America's funniest sporting cartoonist. Cartoonist Robert Tiritilli understands “the ups and downs” of the football world. This former Italian Mafia football coach who has teamed with Charles Hellman an ex-football player who knows the differences between an X and an O to find more ways to blend these one-panel cartoons and jokes with clever captions. They bring out the FUNNY in sports. The wit and satire of these cartoons and their absurdities come to life from Tiritilli's pen. His outrageous graphics poke fun at football players coaches owners and fans with equal gusto. Biografía del autor Charles Hellman is both a storyteller and a writer. His book credits include a novel Bogie: Golf as it Was which deals with the lives of ancient golfers during the 18th Century in St. Andrews Scotland. As a golf historian and he often lectures on cruise ships about golf. Mr. Hellman also has several short stories and articles to his credit. With years of strong draftsman skills Robert Tiritilli helped create his outlandish style and talent of sports cartooning by dually employing representative portraiture and cartoonish lightheartedness. This cartoonist sketched his original artwork very loosely but with intent in blue pencil and then utilized very spontaneously applied inked brushwork. Incorporating the pen and ink technique he is able to suggest shading with well-placed expressive line work. It is worth noting that most of Tiritilli's sports cartoons have no backgrounds. Clearly by only focusing on central players Tiritilli is able to complete a cartoon in faster fashion but his absence of background imagery also allows for cleaner easier to distinguish artwork. PhotoShop is used to enhance the drawings and In-Design was used to lay-out the pages of the book.
