I’m  happy to announce I’ll be working on the new “SOFTBALL” comic book series by comic writer and original youtuber Bobby Crosby (via Keenspot) which is currently in development… 

He announced the project yesterday out at San Diego Comicon and it will likely debut next Spring. I did the initial character designs based on the real players from this amazing Youtube Series. You can check out all the videos over on “DodgerFilms” Youtube channel.

To summarize, it’s a fun group of real people of all ages and backgrounds playing in a fun rec league, pickup game style out in California, but what makes it even special are the fun play by play calls by Bobby Crosby himself. All players have nicknames and they’ve all grown into characters themselves and even have their own followings growing now. There’s always “Team Bobby” vs “Team Benny”, and  one of my favorites of course is the loveable “Bradley Cooper” (no, not the actor) . So go watch and become a fan of the video series in the meantime, and then check back to see how we make it all interesting in comic book form! Here’s Bobby’s announcement… and check out that 26 foot tall cover! Holy geez!

Here’s a look at the first round of characters from the upcoming series.
