Pictures of Pitchers

My daughter was at the Small Press Expo (SPX) in Bethsada, MD last weekend. This is a convention for independent comic book and graphic novel artists and small publishers. A lot of artists come to this and sell their work and produce original artwork for a commission. While she was there she bought this for me.

And this...
These are little booklets, apparently self published by artist Katherine K. Wirick. She was nice enough to autograph them to me.  Here are some of her pictures.

The booklets are laid out with a head shot of a pitcher on one side and a full shot on the other. This is Walter Johnson.

Sandy Koufax

She says that she only draws pitchers who inspire her in some way.

Who wasn't inspired by Mo'ne Davis?

Whitey Ford

Most of the pictures were of past greats.

She seems to have a particular affinity for Dodgers.

You can see more of her work here.
