This illustration of the St.Louis Cardinals Gashouse Gang was created while I was employed as an illustrator at Maritz Motivation Company,which was near St.Louis Missouri. I was employed there from 1969 until 1980. I painted this illustration using Dr.Ph.Martin’s watercolors,pencil an liquid acrylic gel mixed with watercolor on illustration board. The original was around 16″x16″.I used bleach that was applied using a cotton swab in the area around home plate to wipe away some of the brown water color. This was one of the illustrations for the stock campaign Team Power.
Occasionally I would mix Pro White paint with water color to create a semi opaque paint.
I used Dr. Ph. Martin’s water color and Pro White paint on smooth illustration board on this portrait painted during the 1970’s.
This is another Team Power Illustration,which was painted using water color, pencil and dye spray paint on illustration board.
