Hi there, sports fans! I’m Elizabeth, a very part-time freelance illustrator and life-long Cincinnati Reds fan living in Washington, DC. In an effort to warm up my sorely under-used drawing muscles and to keep connected with my favorite team during the offseason, I’ve decided to draw every member of the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame (as of 2012, that number sits at 81). And I’ve started this blog to share the project with YOU, the internet people.
That’s it, really. One drawing for every player. No deadlines. No rules. Maybe we’ll learn something together. Maybe we’ll have fun. And maybe, just maybe, I’ll finally manage to draw a decent wishbone C. Yikes:
Oh, also: the concept of this project is inspired by (shamelessly borrowed from?) Every Hall of Famer by Summer Anne Burton. If you haven’t seen her site yet, you should check it out. It’s pretty great. My site is in no way affiliated with hers, nor is it affiliated with the Cincinnati Reds.
