This time of year all I really do every weekend is go from one baseball game to another. Three boys, three separate teams, three different games almost every Saturday and Sunday. I love it as long as it’s sunny and warm. It gets me away from the computer and chores. So I sit and I watch and I draw in my book. But it’s time to make some baseball art.
I’m inspired by this great vintage book that I found…The book was written by Benjamin Brewster and the pictures are by Jeanne Bendick. It has great black and white drawings, illustrating the basics of baseball. I love the diagram of the baseball diamond.
I’ve been drawing all season, and I finally scanned some sketches and played with them. Here is the first in a series of baseball designs.
I’m planning on making a whole line of baseball mugs and plates for the Holidays this year. They will make great gifts for coaches!
Here is the first go at a repeat design.
