Jim Margalus' White Sox Outsider 2012 is on the horizon. This is what it’ll look like. I created the cover, as I did in 2010 and 2011. More details to come about where to buy the book. Jim is the managing editor at South Side Sox. All Sox fans should make a habit of following his daily White Sox coverage.
On a more disappointing note, I was told by the Southtown Star that they don’t have the budget to continue publishing my Smells Like Mascot cartoons. I had planned on drawing a black-and-white cartoon version of this painting, for this weekend's paper. Now, I don't have to. If there's an upside, I don't have to put this painting through that process of de-evolution.
Going forward, I’ll continue to post art online. I can’t promise too many paintings on canvas, but evolving beyond the constraints of newspapers is overdue. I’m also going to try to get more art into people’s hands and put a little effort into making some money.
Thank you for your continued interest in my work. Happy Baseball Season.
