Dodger Stadium

with one comment

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.

Drawings of baseball things

without comments

I think I mentioned this before, that I’m doing a weekly drawing — let’s go ahead and call it “art,” eh? — for a baseball Web site called NotGraphs. You can see an archive of my work here: http://www.fangraphs.com/not/author/craig-robinson/

The most recent one may be of interest, though, even if you don’t like rounders. It’s more about the process of drawing than baseball itself. That post is here.

Baseball drawings for NotGraphs

without comments

If you a fan of baseball, and like the stuff I do about baseball, you may be interested to know that I recently began contributing to FanGraphs. Specifically, for NotGraphs, the less serious site of the site. I’m gonna be doing something every week, on a Wednesday. I’ve done a handful of them so far, including drawings of baseball stadiums done with my weaker right hand. All the drawings I did for NotGraphs are line drawings, but here’s a coloured-in version of the Dodger Stadium drawing. My stuff can be found here:
