Here are the photos of mine that Graig mentioned using for his paintings...

Gives you a great opportunity to see just how much he nails these images!

More fantastic creations Brutha! Well done. BTW... I really love the way that Alexander is coming together Graig. Can't wait to see Old Pete once you're done with him.

I figure that if everyone's cool with it, I can show some finished pieces here, as it's taking a while for me to get my website fully updated. Additionally, I can show some in-progress shots of other things, be they commissions or for my inventory. Just know that the quality of the photos I take myself aren't even close to that of the ones I have done professionally!

Speaking of whom, I just picked these up from those photographers:


Babe Ruth, 1927, 9"x12"


Joe DiMaggio, 1933 (I think), 9"x12"


Lou Gehrig, 1936, 11"x14"

The Ruth portrait is already spoken for by a fellow board member, but if anyone is interested in the other two, feel free to drop me a line.

And as usual, comments/critiques/rotten tomatoes are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Graig

PS: Oh, and special thanks to Jimmy for allowing me to use some of his images for these bad boys!

I had the opportunity to briefly meet Graig at the national and see his paintings in person and pics don't do them justice! When you see them in person they make you just stare in awe of how beautiful and realistic they are.I know nothung about art or painting,but I can tell you Graig has been blessed with amazing skills. I hope to have a painting of Roberto Clemente done one day,God willing.Keep up the great work!

Thanks so much for all of the wonderful compliments, guys, as well as the support. I really couldn't be surrounded by a better bunch of fellas.

I just got this one back from the photographer's today as well:



The shot is the Great Bambino from September 7, 1921, picking out his weapon of choice in between a doubleheader against Boston. In the second game, he would hit his 52nd homer of the year, propelling the Yanks to a 7-2 victory. In winning both contests, New York found themselves a game ahead of Cleveland for first place in the AL, and a month later, would win the first of their (now) 27 World Championships.

Hope y'all enjoy!

Default The Bambino

I picked up the Ruth portrait from Graig's agent yesterday. Hung it on the wall today and can't stop staring at it. I swear the brim of his cap and the tip of his distinctive nose stick out past the frame and into the room. It is stunning. I saw the Gehrig, the Dimaggio and Ruth with bats in person . . . all spectacular.
