“In my youth, I loved and played the game of baseball. I was a left-handed pitcher or a 'southpaws and I dreamed of pitching in the Major Leagues. I find a lot of my baseball card source material on the web in addition to what I have in the studio. I then re-interpret the imagery, first by hand-drawing a grid onto wood panel and then abstracting from the original source, by reducing and reassigning color codes to each component square.” — Robert Otto Epstein
