Willie Mays Fox Sports Video with John Robertson Paintings
Willie Mays interview by Derek Jeter Ken Griffey Jr. during the 2007 Major League Baseball All Star Game for Fox Sports. The paintings of Willie Mays you see that are used in the interview were painted by me. Some people have asked how this video came about. Originally, a director or producer, (may have been both) from Fox Sports was looking for an artist and had seen some of my sports paintings. He was driving down Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica, Ca. and saw my sports paintings in the window of the Temple Bar. He called me and asked if I was interested in painting for a commercial. I thought it was one of my friends messing with me. But it was legitimate – although it did take him a few minutes to convince me he was for real. He then invited me to Fox Sports in West Los Angeles and explained what he wanted. And, of course I got the commission for a commercial and later did the paintings for this short video below.
