It’s been a few years… so here is another Great Art Blow-out Sale! Well, only 10 pieces but they are of vintage nature. I have to fund the redesign of my website, so I am selling a bunch of older, traditional media illustrations I have lying about for pretty bargain basement prices. Almost all are published pieces from various magazines or ads, with the exception of two self-promo paintings I did for the Directory of Illustration. All were done before my switch to primarily digital color work, so these are the last vestiges of the real paint, airbrush and mixed media illustrations I did in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.A couple of them are really, REALLY BIG. Click on any to be whisked away to the Studio Store for more details! I will be adding a few other pieces as the days go on as well, so check back! Help get my website redesign done, and get something to hang on your wall to cover that big crack in the sheetrock!
This is the most expensive of the pieces, just because of the signatures, at $200. I did this painting for the cover of the Minnesota Twins magazine, Aug/Sept 2002 issue. The illustration features caricatures of Twins relief pitchers for the issue’s cover story. The artwork is done on illustration board (which was “peeled” for color separation) in ink, acrylic paint and airbrush. The art board measures 14.75 x 19.75 inches, and the illustration 13 x 16.5 inches. The art is in excellent shape, being stored in the artist’s studio.
The original is signed by five of the seven players in sharpie marker: Tony Fiore, LaTroy Hawkins, Mike Jackson, J.C. Romero (twice… he signed on the art and again in pencil in the border at the top) and Eddie Guardado. Depicted but without signatures are Jack Cressend and Bob Wells.
As it appeared on the cover of the magazine.
