Ian Happ Has Some New Custom Artwork Available and It Is Very Awesome

If you’re a fan of the Chicago Cubs and custom artwork, Ian Happ has something special for you! As he always does (dude does not sit still between games).

In a follow-up to their “Through My Eyes” project, which began as a three-piece series of original artwork by Patrick Vale capturing the perspective of a player at Wrigley Field (while raising money and awareness for mental health and wellness), Happ and Vale have a new piece of artwork available to purchase.

It’s called DINGER. And it is AWESOME.

Yeah, that is very much up my alley.

But if you want one, you’ll have to act extremely fast, as there were ONLY 200 available to start, and they will not be sold beyond this weekend. That means you have until SUNDAY to get your order in. Here some of the details on the print:

  • Will come rolled in a shipping tube. Frame not included.
  • Digitally produced on photo realistic-litho paper by a local Chicago printer.
  • Print is 23″ x 18″
  • Ian Happ and Patrick Vale printed signature included on each print
  • Please allow up to 10 business days for printing and shipping.
  • $70.00
  • So go here and order one of these limited edition prints ASAP.

    By the way, Vale is doing a one-month residency at the Gallery Victor in Chicago to showcase his work, which he’s calling a love letter to Chicago, baseball, and the Cubs.

    Gallery VICTOR is proud to announce a unique collaboration between renowned British artist/illustrator Patrick Vale, and Chicago Cubs superstar Ian Happ in, See What I See, a love letter to Chicago, baseball, and The Cubs.

    Chicago is a special baseball town, filled with magic and excitement. A good baseball game brings people together, creates a sense of community, and gives the city its own heartbeat.

    Chicago Cubs Superstar Ian Happ knows firsthand how the game he loves impacts his city and its people. Ian has witnessed how something as simple as a bat and a ball can inspire and surprise. Season after season, Happ has seen up close the unique symbiotic relationship between city, crowd, and club.

    Likewise, British artist and illustrator Patrick Vale understands this concept and brings this feeling into life through his work. He explains to the eyes what the heart has always known: the mundane can be transformed into something extraordinary, bringing out the beauty in what would otherwise remain invisible. Gallery VICTOR is proud to announce that Patrick Vale will be an artist in residence throughout the summer.

    In See What I See, Ian’s and Pat’s worlds collide. Through his exquisite images, Pat shows you what they both see and feel – a city brimming with love for the game of baseball.

    Do not miss out on this stunning experience.
