He spoke to FTV about his work.

Taiwanese artist
I was thrilled when the Los Angeles Times reached out to me about illustrating Ohtani. I basically replied immediately. Actually I had provided the newspaper with three sketches, and that is the one they chose.

After receiving the invitation, Bam Bam Yeh had less than a week before his sketch went to print. He said he wanted to showcase Taiwanese graphics on the global stage. The artist is currently working on another Ohtani illustration, so fans can stay tuned.
