Live Sketching At The World Series

I made it!  I can proudly say that I’ve been to two World Series Game 7s back to back!  In both cases, I felt that history was in the making so it’s my “job” to witness these events as an artist.  So I brought my sketchbook, and decided to hammer out as many sketches of the game as I saw it.  Honestly after the first six games, I was expecting anything from good to great with a possibility of epic, but alas it was never meant to be.  The game was a dud. But there were little nuggets of excitement that I was able to capture.  Knowing I have fans on both sides and not knowing the outcome, I alternated each sketch from Astros to Dodgers.

*NOTE I’m working on authenticating each sketch with the MLB.  If you are interested in a postcard size print for $10 please let me know by emailing me at pootpoot@sprestondesigns.com.
