BROOKLYN!

from bowl.com:
'..the term brooklyn strike came from the old days of bowling in Manhattan. If a right handed bowler was up and it went to the far side of the head pin, the other bowlers said it was headed to Brooklyn. However, if the bowler was left-handed, and the ball went to the far side of the head pin, it was said to be a "Jersey" strike!'


detail from my latest piece ('zen of bowling' series)

Wow sweetie, I think I'm going to rediscover my love for bowling after looking at your new series.

Okay, I'm lying. No no no, I'm not lying about how much I love your new bowling series, I'm lying about my love for bowling. Never loved it, kinda liked it, like it more when I've had two or six beers and I can still keep it out of the gutter.
I still think we need to go back to that thrift store and pick up that bowling league shirt before some other sap lucky person gets their hands on it.

just read of a lebowski fest and then your collage post after that. I love bowling illustrations (especially simple line drawings of them). My favorite bowling book of all time is "The Science of Bowling Maintenance" that I found for a dollar in a thrift store.

OH! what a great find!
yeah, the pure almost mechanical drawing is what appeals to me, too. and the poses seem to accentuate the human form so well. i'm having a lot of fun with this series..

i just love these illustrations..
they're from an old 1950's book called, '10 secrets of bowling.'
they have such a mechanical quality, yet still very humanly gestural.
this guy sold already, at least i have him in picture form..
