Baseball caps of 2012

with 3 comments

Should you be a crazy person and care about which caps I wear on my head, you will probably have seen my Ballcap Watch, where I keep track of such things. I had a look at which caps I wore last year, and did some addition, and made a chart using the crappy camera on my laptop and some crude Photoshop skillz:

In 2012, I went capless on 149 days (40.7%). And, thus, wore a cap on 217 days (59.3%).

Top ten caps worn:
1. Diablos Rojos del México (49 times)
2. New York Yankees (28)
3. Montreal Expos (24)
4. Colorado Rockies (23, alternate black cap with purple brim)
5. Seattle Mariners (18, alternate blue cap with teal brim)
6. St. Louis Browns (16, replica of 1908 cap)
7. Seattle Mariners (18, replica of 1977 cap)
8. Montreal Royals (9)
9=. Cincinnati Reds (7, replica of 1901 cap)
9=. Pittsburgh Pirates (7)

In total, of the 62 caps I own, I wore 26 different caps in 2012.

Your life is no better for having looked at this blog post. Apologies for that.

Colonia Nápoles

without comments

There’s a neighbourhood here in Mexico City called Nápoles. A lot of the streets in this neighbourhood (and the surrounding area) have the names of places in the United States. So I did a little map about it. There’s an English version and a Spanish version.

Owen’s clothes

This post is nothing more than me saying, “I like the clothes Owen Wilson wears in Midnight in Paris.”

An old thing

with one comment

I was chatting with my friend Greg Belson the other day, and he reminded me of the label art I did for a record his old band put out in 1998. The two dudes — Greg and his band-mate — were drawn with a pen. The band name part was done by printing out the name, and photocopying it multiple times and moving the original around a little whilst doing so to distort it a bit.

10th anniversary

without comments

If I were really committed, I’d get this made up into a sleeve patch, like on sports uniforms, and have this sewn onto all of my clothes for the year. But I’m not, so for now, it’s just gonna be an image on my little part of the Internet.

Ciudad de México

without comments

Here’s a drawing I began in the autumn of 2010, soon after I arrived in Mexico City. I’d done the background stuff at that point, I think, and a couple of the people, and the dressed-up skeletons. As is my habit, I left it for a while, did a little here and there, and then over the holidays, really got myself together to get it finished. And now it is. There’s a bigger version if you clicky here, and there’s also a guide to who and what you are looking at. It’s not meant as a definitive drawing of the city and its people; it’s just a foreigner’s view of the place.
