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.
Self-portrait, drinking Guinness and drawing in the Tap and Spile pub in Lincoln. This is drawn from memory so the colours and stuff might be a bit off, should you know he pub in question.
More finger painting here.
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:
It’s just a pub, of course, but for me, and I imagine, for plenty of people I know from Lincoln, this pub was more than just a pub. Back in the day, when you were likely to get beaten up for not wearing a white shirt and hair gel and for liking “weird music,” to have a pub like the Brewer in a small shitty town like Lincoln was fantastic. I had a few pints in there when I was back. They still had the Pixies on the jukebox, and the tables and upholstery hasn’t changed. I love that place and always will.
Here’s some drawings that I did with a couple of apps that I use a lot, but haven’t combined before. I did line drawings with the Paper app, then imported those into the Brushes app and coloured them in, and kinda scratched away some of the colour to expose the lines from the original drawing.
A follow-up to this post of more drawings done in a cafe.
