One MS-Painting of a Ballpark

I can’t compete with Craig Robinson’s brilliant art. I can only try my best.

(People in the comments wanted to buy Craig’s. Anyone interested in mine?)

Shea Stadium (from memory) (I am nearsighted) (And I have a bad memory) (And it’s almost a holiday) (And I moved this week) (So please forgive me) (Doesn’t this kind of look like a piece of pizza?) (I’m hungry) (Can I just say Hopeless Joe made this?) (Or my eight-month old son?)

    It’s mint ice cream in a candy-dipped cone, stuck sideways in Donald Duck’s beak. I win. I want it signed, Blachman. And shipped. You can wait till after the holiday weekend.

    Lord help me but it looks like a large missile firing out from a weaponizied broccoli head, one that’s covered in red pustules from unrepentant (and unprotected) broccoli coitus, smashing into a breathless slab of butter with deadly force. $10.00 Canadian – I’ll wire the money via telegraph and we’ll spit-shake to settle the deal.
