Switch-Drawing NL Parks

Hello, NotGraphs readers. My name is Craig Robinson. Not that one. Or the one who played for the Phillies, Braves, and Giants in the 70s. I’m English, myopic, bearded, a recovering cigarette smoker, left-handed, and for want of a less hifalutin word, an artist. The last two of those facts are pertinent. In this, my first post at NotGraphs, and the next, my second post for NotGraphs, I will be presenting to you the results of an experiment I performed a few days ago: drawing wrong-handed. That is, drawing with my weaker right hand. Or, for the sake of cutesy baseball-themed titling of such things: switch-drawing. Below, I have switch-drawn all of the current baseball parks, fields, and stadiums of the National League. It will not surprise you to learn that the second such post will be of American League parks. Please to enjoy.

Craig Robinson is not a Child, a God, a Pilgrim, a Rock, the Forest, the Resurrection, the Cosmos, the Law, or Damo Suzuki. Nor is he trying to break your heart. He does have a Web site, though. It's called Flip Flop Flyin'.

    The Marlins’ mechanized home run sculpture looks like a sobbing fish that has been stabbed with a pin-mounted insect specimen. Deeply symbolic and improved.

    What the hell! What are you doing here, Craig? Is this some sort of Upton Sinclair slumming-style experiment, or do you owe an impossibly deep gambling debt to Cistulli? I love NotGraphs, but NotGraphs does not deserve your genius.

    It appears as though Nationals Park has grown a sun with a ball sack. Oh wait, that’s the “W” sign.

    Neat drawings, but would’ve been cooler if they weren’t labeled. Then I could see how many I could recognize. (Of course, you would’ve had to obscure some of the scoreboard signs too and provide an answer key at the bottom.)
