Eric Potter 2011

In February of this year, I did a post entitled Potter Baseball Extravaganza. Baseball Coach and Author Jeff Potter contacted me a couple months ago to invited me to again display my drawings at another event. He also informed me that his son Eric, had just finished pitching his senior year for the Maryland Terrapins, and been signed by the Oakland A's. Coach Potter asked me to do a drawing of Eric for he and his wife Sheryl. Today was the event, and after Eric did the opening warm up with the boys, Coach Potter had me do an unveil with himself, my two sons, Sheryl and Eric. Everyone seemed pleased with the drawing, and I had Eric do an inscription on the drawing for his Mom and Dad. This was my first commission for a professional athlete, and I couldnt have done it for a finer family or young man! Good luck to Eric, and I cant wait to see him in the "Bigs".
