My second piece shown in the Battle of the Bay Virtual Art Show! Follow @battleofthebayart to see more awesome A’s and Giants themed baseball art created by 30 artists, showcased yesterday and today!
At his peak, Bonds was a larger-than-life figure. He was a terror at the plate and every at-bat felt like an epic moment. I wanted to do a piece that conveyed the feeling of watching Barry in anticipation of him stepping up to the plate. In addition, with his jersey number being retired, I also wanted to pay tribute to the last time someone wears #25 on the Giants.
