This is one of eleven infographics I did last September for Sports Illustrated about Derek Jeter’s career. You can see the others here: http://flipflopflyin.com/flipflopflyball/info-derekjeter.html
Here’s a chart I did back in March for the Bay Area News Group regarding the Oakland Athletics’s general manager Billy Beane.
A quite pointless chart re the names of the five main professional sports leagues in the United States.
I’ve been keeping a chart for a few years now, just noting down when I went to sporting events.
Here you go, waste a few seconds of your day looking at this rubbish, why don’t you?
2015, so far:
Merry Xmas Everybody.
Two drawings of the areas between the foul poles at major league stadiums. I kinda like that this combines the idea of an infographic with “art.”
I’ve been keeping a chart of my sleep for eight years for whatever absurd reason I feel justifies such behaviour:

I’m starting a new ongoing project on the site today. It’s called Bandstand. Hopefully I’ll keep this going until I have done every single band that exists, has existed, and will ever exist. That last sentence is a lie. But I will do a lot more.
Here’s an infographic about when in the calendar year each of the World Cups has taken place.
Whenever a big sporting event comes around, every (EVERY!) Web site has to have lots of graphics of little flags. It’s kinda nice. I like flags. But, because of the way things are designed, lots of times, the flags are wrong, proportionally. The best, most obvious, example is Switzerland’s flag. It is a square not a rectangle, (although I guess a square is a rectangle). It got me thinking. And because I can’t think without drawing, here’s the proportions of all the flags of teams in the World Cup.
Here’s a chart looking a Liverpool players who played at World Cups and how they got on: http://flipflopflyin.com/flipflopflyball/other-lfcwc.html
First: one about the companies that made the kits worn by teams in the World Cup.
Second: an entirely untimely one about the Premier League relegation battle on the last day of the 2010-11 season.
Not an infographic, rather an animation that uses data.
Basically, since the 1958-59 season, English football has had four top tiers. Prior to that, there were the first two divisions and two third divisions: a north division, and a south division. Since that season, of the 92 teams in those four divisions, between 11 and 14 of them have always been London-based teams.
This animation uses the places of those teams within the four tiers and the colours of those teams to create an animation. The longer a team is in a specific division, the closer to the edge of the circle that team is.
More Mexico City stuff here. When I say “more,” I mean one-other-thing-that-I-did-last-year-but-I-intend-to-actually-do-a-lot-more-of-this-stuff.
A couple of infographics today. First, one looking at the time travelling done by Bill and Ted in their Excellent Adventure. And the other one is only really of interest to me and my ego. It looks at the results of searching my name in Google Images. There are more famous Craig Robinsons than me.
I made a chart about the season that ended a short while ago. It looks at the title race, relegation and how ace Suárez and Sturridge were. As a Liverpool fan, it was the most enjoyable season in quite some time. Didn’t end quite the way one would have hoped, but, damn, it was fun.

I made a chart about Prince’s magnificent 1987 album. Here.
