Billy Bates Vs Cheetah
Interactive storytelling through Smart paint, illustration and print
We designed, illustrated and fabricated this little piece of history for the 199C Gallery Show. We first fabricated an interactive touch box that tells the story of The Cheetah Vs Billy Bates with the Cincinnati Zoo, opening up Game 1 of the 1990 World Series at Riverfront Stadium. Then, we did hand-numbered and signed prints to share. Purchase one at our Shop today.
199C: Scandals, Superstitions & Screwballs is all about highlighting the maddening, momentous and memorable that surrounds baseball and all its glory. From what makes for hot headlines to the things that make players tick or break out of a slump, to painting our faces, bedazzling foam fingers or slamming back Cracker Jacks, the exhibition aims to satirize the mystique, the mischief, the heavy hitters and highly questionables of the timeless-yet-tainted love of American’s greatest pastime.
