My new post for NotGraphs is about having a shy bladder and an imagined double play. http://www.fangraphs.com/not/6-4-3/
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.
My new thing at NotGraphs is paintings of the eighteen major league ballparks I have visited:
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.

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:
