taking bart to the battle of the bay


Last week,  Dom and I went to the Battle of the Bay, A’s vs Giants…and as luck turned out its the 20th Anniversary of the Earthquake Series.

Being Eighties Kids, with Dom a Giants fan and myself an A’s fan…we had a blast, recalling  memories of 80’s baseball in the Bay and growing up on opposing ends.

I also took Bart this time to the game…it had been awhile,  so of course i got overwhelmed with all the people and had to draw them all, and when i got to the coliseum i went insane…i love how diverse and beautiful the people of the Bay are, just so many faces and stories to tell…here are some that i caught…

A’s win! take that Dom…oh yeah, the Giants did take this series in the end last week…

    Great photo work. Would be kewl if you could turn it into an HDRI file for Hypershot. Sketches got some attitude as well. Each subject is captured in time displaying so much personality. It be sick if this was on a mural.

    • Ya Jon! You could render the A’s getting Whoooped into your product Highlights!
