crazier than shirttails

My name is Summer Anne. I work at BuzzFeed, draw pictures of baseball players, and listen to a lot of old music. I'm also on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, duh.

Here’s a picture I drew about baseball last night.

This is what happens when I can’t sleep and I want to draw something other than a baseball player: daydreams about being Nicki Minaj.

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.

all i ever put in my sketchbook is gpoys and love letters to my cat.

I love you, Hope Solo.

A drawing I made about soccer and space.

Here’s a commission I did of Johnny Cooney, in the style of Every Hall of Famer.

I just found this comic I drew a couple years ago.

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.


This is a piece I did for an art show that never happened.

It is for sale (ronnythebear at gmail dot com). Sold! :)

If today was not a crooked highway,
If tonight was not a crooked trail,
If tomorrow wasn’t such a long time,
Then lonesome would mean nothing to you at all.

Drawing Kanye. What else would I be doing at 3 in the morning after the weirdest Thanksgiving ever?

stephin-merritt-of-my-heart. a sketchy version as practice for the series of antiheroes i’ve been working on.

30 Drawings Challenge, 24: A favorite childhood memory.

So far behind. Plan to finish this week though, and then we’ll move on to previews of my baseball zine in progress!!

Spent my afternoon trying to draw Kanye West. This one is officially stamped rejected: his hands are too small, his shirt looks weird, and I don’t like the yellow background. But it’s a start.

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.
