11" x 14" sketch of current project

Here is something a little softer than my normal subject. I spent over an hour (almost two) getting this right - baby faces are tough. Next step is to transfer the sketch to illustration board. My plan is to use colored pencil over an oil wash for finished piece. I'll post the next stage when complete.

The Big Hurt

"The Big Hurt" 10" x 14" Oil and Ball Point Pen on Illustration Board

Frank Thomas finally hung up his spikes. Former AL MVP and one of the greatest sluggers of the last two decades announced his retirement in February. A two-sport star in college - I think he went to Auburn. Speculation about Thomas and the Hall of Fame has already begun - but it is mostly about 'when' not 'if.'

More coming soon.
