Foro Sol

without comments

This, we recently found out, will be the last season that Diablos Rojos will play at Foro Sol. It’s a crappy stadium. It’s ugly and way too big, but, sentimentally, it’s kinda been a second home since I’ve been in Mexico. Next season they’ll play *somewhere* in the city, and there’ll be a brand new stadium in 2016. But for now, it’s nice to take photos and do drawings of the old place.

Dodger Stadium

I love Dodger Stadium. I’ve only ever been there once, but it’s so beautiful. The above drawing is done with the iPad app, Adobe Ideas. You can see it bigger, and the ink drawing it is based on, here.

Going to Puebla to watch baseball

without comments

Don’t let the title of this blog post put you off, non-baseball lovers.

I wrote a post for top baseball site NotGraphs about this very subject, but, between you and me, *stage whisper* it’s hardly about baseball at all. It’s most about being in a different city. Travel writing, I guess.
