Play Ball!

Some of my sketches from the most recent Newburyport Drink 'N' Draw.

At a typical Drink 'N' Draw, the artists take turns posing. Last week, members of the Essex Base Ball Organization posed for the group. The players were there to raise money for – and awareness of – Jan’s Pitch for Breast Cancer and the Art.

It was a blast drawing these gents in their vintage baseball uniforms. The reason they are all looking to their left is because that's where the tv showing the Red Sox game was mounted to the wall.

Each pose lasted 10 minutes. I started each sketch with a mechanical pencil (0.5) then jumped to both a fine tip and regular Sharpie. The blue "wash" was added in Photoshop.
