The Sports Art of David Choate

Posted in Baseball, Modern Art at 8:24 pm by

Prior to a heads-up from a friend earlier tonight, I’d not seen the work of David Choate.  His portraits of Joe DiMaggio, Hanley Ramirez and Calvin Borel are equal parts funny and haunting, though none of those earlier efforts are likely to inspire as many “can you make a t-shirt out of this?” requests as the above rendition of Nats starter Stephen Strasburg (currently locked up in a nationally Sutcliffed-to-death duel with the Braves’ Tim Hudson).
