A couple of career details and name are included in type reminiscent of that used in print design during his playing days.

sean-kane-shoeless-joe-jackson-handlettering-sketch-1910s-1920s-type.jpg

This is my sketch for the ribbon and name lettering.

I chose a sepia color palette for this painting to help capture the look of the era, when news about teams was poured over by fans in newspapers and magazines.

Shoeless Joe hit for a .356 average in his career, including .408 in 1911. He led the Chicago White Sox to the 1917 World Series title. And, of course, he's maybe best known for the 1919 Black Sox Scandal.

Kansas City Baseball Icon Buck O'Neil

O'Neil Featured on Custom Baseball Glove Painting

Sean-Kane-Buck-ONeil-baseball-glove-painting.jpg

Vintage 1940s firstbase mitt becomes canvas for painting highlighting career of Buck O'Neil.

Buck O'Neil was a Negro Leagues first baseman and manager of the Kansas City Monarchs from 1938 to 1956. He was the first black coach in Major League Baseball, joining the Chicago Cubs in 1962. Later he was a scout for the Kansas City Royals.

Sean-Kane-Buck-ONeil-baseball-glove-painting-side.jpg

This painting of an elder Buck O'Neil was created for the offices of KC architecture firm Pendulum Studio, specializing in baseball stadium design.

(FYI, video has no sound.)

Buck O'Neil was a founder of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City and became known for retelling stories from that era in Ken Burns' documentary, "Baseball."

Sean-Kane-Buck-ONeil-baseball-glove-painting-career.jpg

O'Neil was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Baseball Hall of Fame has recognized his impact on the game with a Lifetime Achievement Award named in his honor.

The baseball glove painting of Buck O'Neil is custom-framed in a diamond shape, a reference to the logo of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. This is a deep shadow box-style, wood frame with gold highlights on a cloth mat.

Sean-Kane-Buck-ONeil-baseball-glove-painting-framed.jpg

Of all the quotes I've painted on gloves, Buck's may be my favorite; "You Got to Give People Love."

For a special item displaying your affection for a local sports legend -- For a public office space or civic museum, corporate gifts or something for yourself -- I specialize in creating keepsakes that will spark memories of the game and engage viewers. Contact me to discuss the possibilities.

Catching "Casey at the Bat" for the National Pastime Museum

Vintage Catcher Mitts Capture View of Famous Poem

The one integral player not mentioned in "Casey at the Bat" is the catcher, receiver of the three strikes that got by Mighty Casey.

This visual interpretation of the poem addresses that omission.

Sean-Kane-Casey-At-The-Bat-Glove-Painting-1.jpg

At the time of the poem's publication in the 1880's, gloves were just beginning to be standard equipment on the field.

A player behind the plate may have only had a modified work glove to protect himself.

Sean-Kane-Casey-At-The-Bat-Glove-Painting-2.jpg

A generation later, the 1910's, when catchers wore big mitts and 'Casey' was still popularly performed on stage and radio -- and just after publication of a sequel to the famous poem in which Casey gets his revenge -- is the setting for this triptych.

Sean-Kane-Casey-At-The-Bat-Glove-Painting-3.jpg

The three, century-old gloves used in the artwork help transport us to that era while reminding us of the presence behind the plate catching "Casey at the Bat".
