Jamie Cooper recently showed off a portion of his latest masterpiece. The artist behind the Phillies and Yankees Dream Scenes has been working on a painting for a private collector in the United States. This piece takes place in 1933 at Comiskey Park, which is the site of the very first All-Star Game. Over twenty of this private collector’s favorite baseball players will be featured in this painting. Players include Mickey Mantle, “Shoeless” Joe Jackson, Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Jackie Robinson, Sandy Koufax, and Hank Aaron. I haven’t heard yet whether or not prints will be made available. When the painting is complete, I’ll be sure to share a picture.
Outside of his U.S. projects, Jamie Cooper has been quite busy. He recently did a series of caricatures which were used for an Australian Football League card product. The caricatures were printed in 3D, and fall 1:60 packs. I would highly suggest U.S. card companies to give his work a look. I believe he could make some interesting looking stuff for American sports cards. Next on his plate is a Dream Scene for the Spanish soccer club Atlético Madrid.
You can now purchase prints directly from Jamie Cooper’s shop. His prints make great gifts. Go buy something!!!
