You all know how I feel about pitchers but it turns out I also have some strong feelings about shortstops.

Comics are happening

Tumblr, you’ve already been beaten by Facebook but I’m giving you one more chance at this.

HINTS:

  1. They are in chronological order, left to right, by the date their careers started.
  2. They were all contemporaries, although the first and the last only overlapped by three years. 
  3. They are the only five people who have this particular thing in common.
  4. States where they were born, in no order: Maryland, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania, Kansas.
  5. Cities that made them famous, in no order: Detroit, New York, Pittsburgh, New York, Washington DC.
  6. One of them had a brother called Butts. I swear this is true.
  • Googling “baseball butts” may or may not be helpful.

Two and a half out of five are, but that’s not the answer :)

Katherine Wirick to Exhibit at PIX 2014

Katherine Wirick specializes in 20th-century history, with a focus on war, trauma, and art. Her first major work was a wall-sized comic about the Kent State shooting through the eyes of her father; that piece is now in the permanent collection of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She’s currently working on Nervenkrank, a graphic novel about the life of John Heartfield. Also, she’s recently gotten into baseball, which has made her work marginally less depressing. She tumbles regularly at http://katherinewirick.tumblr.com and sells comics at http://katherinewirick.storenvy.com.

Pittsburgh! This Saturday!!

ALL OF MY WORK is now available in PDF format. Nervenkrank #1 and Pictures of Pitchers are $2, The Mayans Were Right is $1, and No One Is Safe is $5. Go.

I GOT INTO SPX!!!

Maybe it had something to do with Walter Johnson.

What a guy.

aaaah i love these lines. cheekbone and nose and the space between chin and lip yessss. are you using a different art….thing….draw thing tool? to make lines? (i don’t know art stuff okay)

Nope? Still colored pencil. I did try out a new brand but I’m only using them for the first underdrawing because I don’t like them.

(Faber-Castell Polychromos, if anyone’s wondering. Way too hard, not creamy enough for my purposes. Sticking with Prismacolors even though they’re not as good as they used to be.)
