New Print: Birds and the Bats
Here's a new print hot off the press! It's an expanded version of an Amazing Facts & Beyond strip from last year's baseball season, detailing the evolution of the St. Louis Cardinal's famous Birds-on-the-Bat emblem.3-color hand-pulled screenprint on ivory Canson Mi-Tientes pastel paper, 19" x 25". Here was a sketch:Messing around with the 3 inks:The ink drawing & final digital art (Note how much copying and pasting I did of the birds once I had a few good ones drawn):These will be debuting for sale (for $25) this weekend at the Rock and Roll Craft Show here in St. Louis, next Saturday at the Cherokee Print League Holiday Sale, and are available from me directly I reckon. Thanks!
