Just finished with this piece for Omar (made from cut baseball cards). He'll also be signing a few prints for me at the end of June. I decided to use his native Venezuelan flag as the backdrop; and although the Detroit Tigers made the connection between us, it was pretty easy to go with Cleveland as the team. I used Omar's cards as much as possible, with the entire bottom right-hand corner filled with his 1990 Donruss card. I also used only his former teammates on the rest of the background. I'll have Miguel Cabrera's piece finished soon. Thanks for the look!

That's pretty cool, and I would imagine it takes time to match up faces with pieces of cards. Pretty amazing actually.

Omar is one impressive talent. 20+ year MLB career, classical guitarist, artist - I think he can do pretty much whatever he wants. I definitely viewed it as a feather in my cap when he asked for me to create this.

That's pretty cool, and I would imagine it takes time to match up faces with pieces of cards. Pretty amazing actually.

Tim that's impressive. How long did that take?

Thanks, guys! This particular piece somewhere in the 50-60 hour range.

How for the love of f_ck do you do this???????? Absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!!

LOL, thank you! I guess it's like painting, except my "paint" can't be mixed to create the tones/shades, etc. that I need. The great thing is that there is zero shortage of cards to find what I am looking for.

Love your work Tim. Can't wait to see your Miggy piece.

Thanks! The Cabrera piece should be finished in the next day or so, as I have been working on the pair together.
