Sergio Romo has become one of my favorite pitchers for the San Francisco Giants. He is known for his “no-dot slider” – a filthy pitch that behaves like a typical slider, but with a special rotation where there is no red dot visible on the ball for the batter to look out for.
Here is a sketch of him I did with a silly “Early 1900s baseball meets the Old West” theme in mind. Why? Because Romo is an old school gunslinger.
Just read Saga Chapter ONE and my first thought was “Epic.” Embarrassingly, I said this out loud. Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples have created an immediately huge world, and even with so much information in the first issue, I found myself wanting to know everything about this universe.
I’m looking forward to more adventure, funny dialogue, and beautiful art in the upcoming chapters, and in the meantime, I was inspired to do a little fan art. The image above is my take on Marko. He has horns, a sword he swears he won’t use ever again, and magic blue fire. ENJOY!
After reading Craig Calcaterra’s article about San Francisco Giant’s ace, Tim “the Freak” Lincecum and All-Star Closer Brian “the Beard” Wilson’s disagreement over who would win in a fight between Superman and Batman, I had no choice but to literally illustrate my point. I tried to make the sketch as impartial as I could – but for the record: Superman would beat Batman ANYDAY. Enjoy!
