Please excuse my absence, dear readers — it’s been a very busy [insert embarrassingly high number] months.
I wanted to update you all on my latest endeavor, as a columnist for The National Pastime Museum’s Historian’s Corner (link is to my work but check out the whole site. An incredible collection of memorabilia, images and stories, not to mention some great writing). Three comics up so far (with more to come): a piece on Jim Creighton, one on Addie Joss & Ed Walsh, and an illustrated Casey at the Bat (make sure you click to enlarge, and keep clicking through. They’re all multi-page stories).
I’d love to hear what you think, and please share with your baseball and/or comic-loving pals.
Jonathan Leshanski at baseball website At Home Plate was kind enough to post this review of Hit By Pitch. Three balls out of four — I’ll take it! Thanks, Jonathan.
Hey all. Ron Kaplan of the excellent Baseball Bookshelf blog was kind enough to have me on his podcast to talk about my book. You can listen to me chat about drawing Ray Chapman, Carl Mays, and the gang on his site or on iTunes. I highly recommend his other interviews as well. Enjoy!
Happy Father’s Day to all you dads, and especially MY dad, who’s the best one… sorry, everybody. He’s the one who set my on my path to baseball obsession (for better or worse) and I can’t wait for him to take my son (a.k.a. my much-anticipated Fall Release) to a game. All of this is just preamble to sharing my favorite old photo of the two of us:
I love this picture because he looks like John Lennon and I look as excited as if I’m actually meeting John Lennon.
Love you, Dad!
Just another day at the park with the Claude, the Canine Art Snob.
