Padres Series Illustrations - Part 1

Near the end of 2017 Spring Training, I posted a question on Twitter. "Are any Padres bloggers planning on writing series previews during the season?" I got a quick reply from Joe Lanek (@TheThinGwynn) from Gaslamp Ball. He said he was kicking around the idea, and asked what I was thinking.

Ever since I ran across some amazing images of vintage football programs a couple years back, I'd been wanting to illustrate series programs for the Padres. I let Joe know that I'd love to provide illustrations for his previews. He was on board, and we headed down a road that neither of us realized would be so long.

I have a better than average grasp on the topic of baseball. But I definitely didn't take the time to count (or do the simple math to estimate) the number of series the Padres play in a year. I just started drawing.

During the final Padres Spring Training game, I finished my program illustration for the home opener against the Giants. I sent the image to Joe, and eagerly awaited his reply. Later that evening he sent back a message that he loved it!

I was stoked that he liked it, but he followed up by asking what I had planned for the opening series vs the Dodgers...  

Crap. Hadn't even thought about series on the road.

I knocked out a couple quick illustrations, and here they are:

Terrific stuff! Most of these I caught on Twitter, but a few I missed, so glad there's a central place for them all now.
