Mark Buehrle Day, with sketch journalist Carl Skanberg.

The White Sox invited me into their house to sketch the festivities today. I was essentially a regular credentialed member of the media. I started the day doodling on top of the dugout, moved to the field for the retirement of Mark Buehrle's 56, then I went up to the press box to score and sketch the game. I felt like a weirdo and an outsider most of the day. I hope you like the results. Cheers.

 

The game was getting out of hand and it didn't appear the Sox would be providing any additional inspiration. I decided to open up my bottle of ink and put down an image of Mark Buehrle's father listening to 'My Hero' by Foo Fighters and watching a video montage of his son. He's ordinary.
