It was Honus Wagner's famous card that inspired my current Pop Art-like series of baseball portraits... Unlike his card, which depicts him as a youth, I am portraying his later years because his grizzled face and expression are interesting to me. He reminds me of the tough, grizzled older guys I've had in my life who have been through some stuff and became tougher for it... a throwback to a different era when men had to grow up fast and life was a little bit tougher for your average American than it is now. I mean, the guy dropped out of school at age 12 to help his father and brothers in the coal mines and ended up having a Hall of Fame baseball career!
