2012 Minnesota Twins Poster

Clicky to Embiggen…

Back in the early-mid 2000’s I did an illustration of the entire Minnesota Twins baseball team roster each year, which was given away as a poster at the ballpark on the last home game of the season aka “Kid’s Appreciation Day”. I hadn’t done one since 2006, but this year the Twins hired me to do it again. The above is the result, given away at yesterday’s game.

The ones I did in earlier years were ink and watercolor original paintings, which now hang in the Twin’s offices. This new one I did digitally.

*EDIT– Due to popular request (and since no one has a clue who any of these players are), here’s the “key”:

    Love the coach with the clipboard Tom! Sorry, I’m a Yankee fan so I don’t know his name. Great job!

  2. Bill Karis says:

    Amazing, Simply Amazing….!!!!!

  3. jailerjoe says:

    Great poster, Tom! Gardy’s definitely my favorite, too. Willingham probably wishes his bat was that big.

    Hey Tom great colors on this one, did you did it with a photo reference or everyone gives their picture, just great!!!. Take care.

  5. Kyle Maloney says:

    O_o How long would say this took you?

  6. Kirby Schmuckett says:

    That’s one of the best Esmerling Vasquez caricatures I’ve ever seen. Definitely top ten.

  7. David Lubin says:

    Amazing, better than a photograph…no one’s eyes are closed!

  8. Nick says:

    Outstanding Tom.
