John Barahona: Painter
The images in the gallery are all digital illustrations done in Corel Painter and Adobe Photoshop. I usually work directly on the computer, but sometimes take scans from my sketchbook into the digital realm. I started creating baseball illustrations in 1980 as a writer for the Piedmont TImes, covering UC Berkeley baseball. Instead of photographing the games, I started capturing the energy of the game through my sketches. This has continued to this day, finally resulting in this online showcase.
