I played baseball intensively from the time I was seven years old all the way through highschool. I've been getting nastalgic about it lately , so I did these pieces.

The batter above is just entering the batting circle to warm up as he gives the current batter a motivational clap. That's what My old highschool uniform looked like.

I gave this guy a 1960's Yankee uniform. Batters looked cooler without helmets. I love this moment just as the ball is leaving the pitchers hand, and even as the batter shifts his weight to antic he is still judging to see if the pitch is going to be hitable. It all happens so fast.

Jackie Robinson (above) had a great stockey build. He was springy but heavy. I always loved his 1960's Dodger uniform.

YEAH!!! I love these! and your descriptions really make me want to go play ball again...NOW! but i wouldn't be cool like the Yankee, I'd look like a football player with a helmet, sliding pants and elbow pad cause I've turned into a wimp. and no tabacco either, just sunflower seeds in my back pocket. I really like how you made all 3 different moments in the game and used 3 different eras of uniforms and body shapes... Now drop that pen, grab your glove and lets GOoooo!!!

These drawings are so inspiring! I've been picking away at an old-time hockey comic forever and this is really invigorating to look at.

Old sports images are the best.

Dude, these drawings are the shitballs. I think that's the first time anyone's ever used a wad of tobacco as part of a gesture...f-en outstanding! You should totally do some elderly mermaids, regardless of lateness. A lot of late-joiners have done some of the old assignments. The first was deformed sorcerers, so you can bust out the ol' monster manual and do some of them too! I'll see if I can get Teddy Newton to join. Awesome, man! Sketch greatly!

For your book, are you gonna do just caricatures of pro players or a mix of lots of leagues and ages? Is there a waiting list for the book :)?

8:37 PM  
Blogger SHANE PRIGMORE said...

Hey everyone, HOLY CRAP, I'm glad everyone likes these guys. And to answer your question Nathan Lindsay- I have a ton of baseball doodles and moments that cover everything from Little league to 1940s Womens leagues , to turn of the century to present. And maybe a couple charicatures and Omages here and there. But all different takes and styles. It will fill a book. I love drawing this stuff and people have been bugging me to do some sort of sketch book. Well this will be the first.
Again, Thank you everyone for your incredibly kind feed back. It is greatly apreciated.

Anyway err on abercrombie Outlet the side of caution and choose the abercrombie and fitch larger size. If the abercrombie sale size 20 blouse is too big, but abercrombie & fitch the size 18 is too small, choose abercrombie the larger blouse. This will enable you to have it fitted. A seamstress or tailor abercrombie uk can't do anything with a garment that's too small abercrombie london -- he or she can, however, tailor a garment abercrombie and Fitch Polo that's too big to fit you to a T.Most plus size abercrombie Polos women's clothing will fail to fit one particular part of her body.
