    in the 80's, the minnesota twins were a bit of a mythical team for me....they played in a strange dome that gave everything a greyish feel, the ball seemed to bounce like a super ball off the weirdly sort-of green artificial turf, and right field was a huge black hefty bag (covering bleachers used for vikings games)....as an east coaster, games in minnesota were on a little later but not too late to watch

     

    and then there was kirby puckett, the diminutive lovable superhero built like a tank, crushing the ball, and flashing his smile throughout....he alone became worth staying up late for! kirby became the first opposing player that i became an unabashed fan off

     

    ~~the PACK OF CARDS series~~

    growing up i was obsessed with baseball cards

    i collected as many as i could get my hands on,  and i studied them!

    the artwork, the stats, everything, i couldn't get enough

    literally every dime i made on my paper route went to cards

    baseball cards taught me about math, statistics, economics, spelling,

    geography, graphic design, on and on....

    and they became an integral part of my love for the game

     

    in this series, i will be revisiting and reimagining some of my favorite cards.

    each piece of original art will be framed along with the original card,

    double, sometimes triple matted, with museum glass

    (there won't be any prints made, just the originals)

     

    i'll add progress pics so you can follow the creation of each piece
