We all know Chris Davis is in a major slugging slump right now, but wow what a glove. He has saved a few games with his glove alone. Hang with him, he will come out of it.

Josh Hamilton Sketch Card

12 05 2009

My first attempt with a little color on a sketch card. Today’s guinea pig is Josh Hamilton. Struggled a little on how I wanted to do the face…more scared of the markers since it is permanent. Just trying different techniques.

Ian Kinsler Sketch Card

9 05 2009

Being that the Texas Rangers have one the last 6 out of 7 games, I thought I would sketch up one of the main reasons for their success and a big reason why they are in 1st place (has a nice ring to it…).

Trying my hand at Sketch Cards

5 05 2009

As they all say “it has been awhile since I last posted”. A lot has changed:

The football draft has come and gone. Which is funny…on the 2nd day of the  draft I had been  blogging on a local newspaper website about the draft and mentioned on there it seems the Cowboys are looking for Depth and Special teams players.

Little did I know that those little comments would get one guy all fired up to the point of calling me names and saying I didn’t know anything about football. I, being a man of many opinions and surprising as it sounds, decided not to justify his ignorance by commenting back. So needless to say It was real funny to hear everyone after the draft talk about how they worked to improve the Special Teams.

The Texas Rangers are 13 – 12 and back on the climb. And if you missed the game last night you missed one of the best catch and throws of the year by a short stop.

Which leads into something new I am trying. Been working on a few sports sketch cards. Artist draw these 1/1 cards that are the size of a regular baseball card 2.5″ x 3.5″ and then they are placed in baseball card packs at the factory and distributed in Card boxes. So my first ever “personal” (maybe someday I can have a few cards placed in packs) sketch card and it is of Elvis Andrus. Thinking of leaving the logo and numbers off of the next one. Was looking around and most artist don’t put all that on there.

Hope you like!
