I am Kristin and I absolutely love sports--especially football. I grew up with two older brothers who beat "football is the best sport ever" into my brain. I thrive on the passion the sport holds and always am up for watching a good game.
My dream job would be to work on the sidelines for ESPN. While I inch myself closer to that accomplishment, I still continue writing as I love the passion involved with it. I try never to be bias and always try and walk away learning something from one of my articles, whether it be from a fellow member here on B/R or just the research I do for them.
B/R has been a great thing for me. I have actually ended up scoring a couple REAL interviews with some NFL players that either played the game or are still playing the game :)
So those of you who think that this is just a site that doesn't really get you noticed, think again. This has been a great stepping stone for me.
Thanks again for your interest in my articles.
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,
Kristin! It was great to hear from you! I have thought about writing here again, just not sure how to jump in. This was a great place with a lot of great people. I do miss the old group! How are you?
how u doing
WHERE ARE YOU ARTICLES?
Hi Kristin, what's up with no new articles?
Can't wait for your next article! Maybe you could write about Roethlisberger's recovery and how the Steelers will be a better football team. No?
Just dropping by to see how you're doing...I hope all is well.
Hey, thanks again for fixing my article while I was commuting today!
