Here’s some new Giants artwork I completed recently, in honor of Eli Manning’s retirement and LT and Saquon’s recent birthdays. Signed prints of the Saquon are 11″ x 14″ and available for $25 apiece. You can also get it on t-shirts and other merch over at my TeePublic store. Some of the other original pieces are still available as well. If interested in anything, email email@example.com
Here are a few new Yankees pieces I finished recently: One more to celebrate Mariano Rivera’s HOF induction last year, a few to celebrate Derek Jeter’s induction this year. including a t-shirt design for Bald Vinny, another Bald Vinny t-shirt design to celebrate Gerrit Cole’s signing, one for the Babe’s birthday, the previously posted Lou Gehrig live-painting to benefit ALS, and another to mourn the death of the only pitcher to ever throw a perfect game in the World Series, Don Larsen. It’s a quick rendition of the famous photo of Yogi Berra jumping into his arms after the final out on that legendary day in 1956. A few of these are still available for purchase. If you have any questions or would like to commission something, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!
A few weeks ago I was asked to do a live-painting at the 16th Annual Robert Luongo ALS Dinner at Nanina’s in Belleville, NJ to be auctioned off at the end of the evening. The dinner was started and is still run each year by MLB umpire Phil Cuzzi, with a number of people from the world of sports showing up each year and a veritable treasure trove of memorabilia being auctioned off. It was a really great night, fun time, and honor to be a part of. Phil does a great job organizing the event in honor of his late high school friend, the ownership and staff of Nanina’s did a terrific job and treated me fantastically (amazing venue, btw, check it out), legendary Tigers and Pirates manager Jim Leyland gave the keynote speech, and I had the honor of watching both Bob Costas and local comedy legend Uncle Floyd auction off my painting. Bob got my name wrong, but other than that did his usual terrific job on the mic. It was a treat getting to see one of the great broadcasters of my lifetime cut loose and emcee a live event in a room like that. Uncle Floyd and I had a great time talking about not just the Yankees, but also David Bowie: how he’d come to see their live show at The Bitter End in the ’80s, and what it was like having the Starman himself write a song about him (“Slip Away”, off 2002’s Heathen. A great song, and also the only one where Bowie mentions the Yankees). It was a special night, and one I was very happy and honored to be a part of. Thanks to Phil and everyone else for having me and treating me so well. Looking forward to next year’s dinner already! I wasn’t able to get as many pics as I liked (I was too busy trying to finish that big Gehrig painting in 4 hours), but I thought I wanted to share a few with you here. I really liked how that Gehrig came out. Of all the Yankee live-paintings I’ve done in the past year (and I’ve done a lot), this is one of my favorites. It’s 24″ x 36″ and ended up being auctioned off for $1500, second only to an autographed Mariano Rivera “Hall Of Fame 2019” jersey. Very cool. Enjoy!
To go along with my podcast where I and my friend Justin Murray recap the entire original Transformers cartoon episode-by-episode I’m also trying to create a new piece of art to drop along with each episode every Tuesday. This particular painting is a recreation of the wanted-style Megatron poster hanging in the munitions factory where puny flesh-creatures are building new weapons to take on the Decepticon threat. I had a lot of fun doing this and really like how it came out. So much so that I put it on a bunch of merch over at my TeePublic store. If you’d like the original email me at email@example.com. It’s 9″ x 12″ acrylic on Canson mixed-media paper. Enjoy!
Here’s a little painting of one of the greatest movie moments ever, even if it is only the second best in its own movie, Steve Rogers showing Thanos, Thor, and the world that the little budge we saw in Age Of Ultron was no joke and he is truly worthy to wield the mighty Mjölnir. And then goes opening up a giant can of whoop-ass on the mad Titan before ultimately being bested right as the newly un-snapped cavalry arrives (the single greatest moment in the movie, and in any movie of the last few years). I w,ant to do a piece depicting Cap finally – FINALLY! – giving the iconic “Avengers, assemble” line, but I’m still unsure how to go about doing it. It would certainly be a much larger canvas piece. I had to get this one out of my system, though. The image and moment are just too good. So here he is. 9″ x 12″ acrylic on canvas. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase.
