Creating the Victorino Glove Artwork

sean-kane-shane-victorino-flyin-hawaiian-phillies-akadema-glove-art.jpg

The painting was created with acrylic paints and on an Akadema outfielders glove. Once the team selected from a variety of designs I presented using photos they chose, work began on preparing and painting the glove. This included hand-lettering of text, Phillies logo and portrait painting.

 

sean-kane-shane-victorino-flyin-hawaiian-phillies-glove-art-short-handle-brush.jpg

The tight space in the glove required chopping the brush handle in half so I could fit it and my hand in there to paint.

Baseball Artwork for the Philadelphia Phillies

This is my fourth painting for the Phillies. Previously I painted catcher "Chooch" Ruiz, a glove for Ryan Howard, which was also presented in an on-field ceremony at Citizens Bank Park, and painted base for Jim Thome.

The Phillies sent me a game-used base with a connection to Thome's time on the team for this painting commission.

sean-kane-jim-thome-phillies-hall-of-fame-base-portrait-art-5249.jpg

The base was on the field as first base when Thome hit his final Phillies home run, a walk-off homer in 2012.

sean-kane-jim-thome-phillies-hall-of-fame-base-art-5154.jpg

Creating the Thome Base Artwork

The painting was created with acrylic paints and is 15 x 15 inches. Once the team selected from a variety of designs I presented, work began on preparing and painting the base. This included hand-lettering of text, Phillies logo and portrait painting. Quite a bit bigger than my usual glove art, this one clocked in at 120+ hours.

sean-kane-jim-thome-phillies-hall-of-fame-base-hand-lettering-5092.jpg

Thome signed with the Phillies in 2003. Over parts of four seasons with the team, he hit .260 with 101 home runs, 281 RBI and a .925 OPS.
