Opening Day…

The Blue Jays had a great Opening Day win to start off their season.  This year for my Jays Care Fundraiser I will be creating a drawing for each game they win during season.  Stay tuned as I will start capturing moments right away, the first drawing will feature Marcus Stroman who had a spectacular start to lead the Jays to their victory.  Thanks again for your all support and with your help I hope to reach my $5000 fundraiser goal this season.

Cheers, Chris.

Donaldson Paintings Done…

It was another busy week finishing up these two Donaldson commissioned paintings.  I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out, and now they are headed, with the clients, to spring training for some signatures!  Prints are now available so feel free to CONTACT me if you are interested.  I also got started on a Kobe painting and made some good progress on my Masters artwork.  I’ll post some more progress pictures of those paintings soon.

Cheers, Chris.

The Spring Is Approaching…

It is always an exciting time when spring training rolls around and after last season it is even more exciting than ever.  The Jays team that captured the hearts of all of us Canadians is back to take another run at the title, and I for one can’t wait to see them starting the ride.  That being said it has been a very busy few weeks in the studio.  Here are some of the projects that I have completed and are currently working on.  I’m really looking forward to finishing all of these up and then moving onto some other new projects.

Thanks for all you support,

Chris.

It was fun while it lasted…

It has been awhile since the postseason ended for the Jays, so I have had time to reflect.  It was an amazing run, but It felt like it wasn’t supposed to end…  I am still a little bitter about the horrible strike calls that dramatically changed the 9th inning for the Jays, but at that point were already 0-9 with runners in scoring position, so in the end the Royal executed better and deserved.  It was absolutely incredible how much the whole country got behind the team, and I really hope they keep it going next year, I would love to see what this lineup could do for a whole season!  Now I’m busy working on lots of new art, there are so many moments I’m excited to capture throughout the off season.  Christmas is just around the corner, CONTACT me if you are interested in prints or originals.  Here is some of my latest artwork.

The Bat Flip Heard Round Canada…

Well it’s been a very crazy time since I last wrote.  The Jays were able to come back from 2-0 series deficit to win in dramatic fashion.  After all the crazy events in the 7th inning, Joey bats hit an incredible 3 run homer to give the Jays the lead.  To cap it off, his emotions churned out one of the greatest bat flips in baseball history.  Here is the drawing I just completed to honor the magical moment.  The original is sold, but if you are interested in prints you can contact me HERE.

Postseason baseball is back…

Well It’s been a crazy few days with the Blue Jays back in the postseason.  I was only 14 the last time they were in the playoffs and I really didn’t remember how intense it was.  It has been a rough start, but this Jays team has shown all season that they won’t back down, and they can string wins together.  I’ve been busy working on some new artwork and I’m excited to create some from the postseason soon.  I’ll leave you with my first Russell Martin drawing, that I just finished, the original and prints are still available.  If you are interested in this or have any other questions please feel free to contact me HERE.  Go Jays Go!!!
