I am an Ohio University alum with a degree in Sport Management. I currently reside in San Francisco, and I am a Video Producer for Bleacher Report.
I absolutely love ALL sports, with my favorites being football and basketball.
Yes, I am an Ohio State football fan (born and raised), but I will choose my beloved Bobcats over the Buckeyes any day of the week.
I have a varied mix of favorite teams: The Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Red Wings, and Cincinnati Reds.
During my time at OU, I worked for the Southern Ohio Copperheads, a collegiate wooden-bat baseball team from the GLSCL. I enjoy interacting with players, coaches, and fans, and I consider myself a true Sports Nerd!

I am a featured illustrator/designer for major sports brands like ESPN, CBS Sports and Sports Illustrated. I also work directly with professional teams, I am the exclusive digital illustrator for the New York Knicks and New York Rangers, I have worked on a variety of digital and merchandise products for The New York Red Bulls and my artwork has been on the cover of the Phoenix Suns Free Throw Magazine. In addition I work with professional athletes organizations like J.R. Smith's Reach Anonymous and sports agents like Hazan Sports Management.
My work has been written about in the Boston Globe, Washington Post, Fox Sports and in many other sports media outlets. Recently I worked on editorial illustrations for Fansided and Cover 32. I would love to have an opportunity to create some designs and illustrations for Bleacher Report as well if you are interested. You can see my work on my website elliotgerard.com or my Instagram account @elliotgerard.
Thanks for you time and consideration and I look forward to talking further with you.
All the best,
Letz go! When are we getting some Fantasy Football Lead Writer video projects started?
Your scariest athletes article was dumb enough for me to take the time to come here and let you know.
Appreciate the backup on the Johnny Manziel piece, haha. Got to love these guys who click on obviously fluffy articles and expect to find some kind of Grantland meets Watergate Investigation style of journalism.
Thanks again for the words.
care for a fan add?
Thanks for reading, Bailey!
Did you just call Kid Rock chubby? Does your gigantic nose get in the way of viewing yourself in the mirror? I bet you hang with a bunch of fat girls to feel better about yourself.
Just read you B/R blog post. I couldn't agree more. Congrats on that promotion, I've always been a big fan of your work.
