Last April, I was contacted, via this blog, by the Art Director of Golf Digest, the most respected magazine related to golf. They were doing a story about a pub, The Ailsa Pub, that my friends and I had been to in Myrtle Beach, and wanted a copy of a photo of us gathered around a table. I was happy to provide such a photo for a chance to be published in such a prestigious periodical. Recently I have learned, from one of my very surprised friends, that my photo has, indeed, been used in the August 2009 edition of Golf Digest. My face, however, has been “selectively removed” by the artist.
The Original Photo
The Published Illustration
I say most of this in jest, of course. I am still delighted that contact via this blog could result in drawings of my good friends (Jeff, Paul, Mike, Mark, Jacob, Al, and John) and my beer being published in a magazine. Very, very cool.
