"I wanted to create a bold, powerful piece to visually represent the incredible story of Jackie Robinson. I selected the words/information that I felt best characterized his monumental journey. To achieve the old fashioned tone/personality of the piece, I illustrated the words out on paper by hand and then brought them into the computer by scanner, editing with photoshop, using the Brooklyn Dodgers color palette to tie the piece together." -Rory Martin
