Bonus Art

A few weeks ago Jay discovered some T-shirts featuring pin-up girls wearing the uniforms of Cuban National baseball teams. After some research, he discovered the artist, Andres Garcia, was basically the Cuban Normal Rockwell. He did lots covers for Carteles magazine. These baseball pin-ups had been a series he did in the late 50's. So, in honor of his hometown Milwaukee Brewers, (who are on the upswing of the 25 year cycle of Milwaukee baseball teams kicking butt) Jay brushed off the old Minor League Brewers' Barrel Man, and another fan favorite, Bonnie Brewer complete with broom and did a pin-up in the style of Mr. Garcia. No word if the Two-Fisted Slopper/Slobber is next.
