WOW. I just stumbled upon the work of Feg Murray while looking up pictures of Kiki Cuyler on google image search. I am blown away. I was just telling Lei-Leen yesterday about how I wish I was born 80 years earlier so I could have been a newspaper comic artist, which is what I really feel like Every Hall of Famer is at it’s heart. And then today, I find this. Feg was primarily known for his “Seeing Stars” series, which featured Hollywood celebrities in a format similar to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. I can’t find much more info on these baseball drawings, but I am so inspired right now! I just want to draw for days.
A new project for a new year. Among others. I’m going to be drawing each of the 293 members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame (in chronological order, naturally). Follow me! And I made a facebook fan page for the project where I’ll be posting some fun, random Hall of Fame / baseball stuff in addition to the blog feed, if you’re into that sort of thing.
30 Drawings Challenge, 23: Something in front of me.
This prompt just didn’t inspire me, but I wanted to get it over with. I only have a few more drawings to do before I’m done with this little exercise. I want to finish, but a big part of me is pissed that numbers 24-30 aren’t “Ron Artest, Ron Artest, Ron Artest, Ron Artest, Ron Artest, and Ron Artest.” Oh well.
