Really nothing too major, just looking at this one again and changed the face and the leg a bit.

Ok, I know, a little late for baseball season, but this is one of the final pieces for the 2006 calendar. The uniform is based off of the old AAGPBL (All American Girls Professional Baseball League) uniforms. I don't know if there was ever a team with the colors of blue and yellow, but it seemed like a nice combination for that fresh spring feel. This will either be March or April, I haven't decided %100 yet.

The AAGPBL, despite the uniforms, was actually a pretty big step forward for women in the 20th century. They really stepped up the the plate as it were (no punn intended) and really pushed the envelope as much as Rosie the Riveter in a visible, iconographic way that people could really see.

A little trivia for you: if you look real closely there on her sleeve, the patch reads R-G GPBL, RG standing for Retro Girl ;)

Medium: original sketch vectored in Illustrator

Very 1950s looking, nice one.
You do any rockabilly style artwork?

I really need to. I think I did a sketch as a commission when I was at ComicCon a couple years back, but never did full color. About the closest right now would be [link] . As soon as I get through the projects on my plate right now, maybe in a couple months, I'll try to do something more along that vein.

And indeed it would be good to see more stuff like that, you capture the style and feel of it very well in my book. ^_^
