Let's Kill The Phills!




first off i really like to draw mr met. i feel that this definitely much more expressive than my earlier take on him. i am hoping to do much more during the playoffs and moving onto next year! (he might even get his own blog who knows.)
anyways :)
after watching my beloved mets get annihilated by the phillies two weeks ago i came up with this. the philly phanatic has to be the most annoying mascot in baseball. someone has to set this maniac straight. the phillies are are hanging on a thread, holding on to a six games deficit in the nl east. starting friday 9/14 mr.met and the mets shall get their revenge by doing what should have been done two weeks ago.....that is... kill the phills and win the division again. sorry dagan i know that this is your second favorite team in baseball next to the stank-ees! ha ha.

thanks for stopping by.

LET'S GO METS!
-s.

UPDATE: Thanks to Matt Cerrone and the people over at MetsBlog for mentioning me on their blog! This is the ulti-met blog for up to date mets news.

Nice...I have a MR. MET over on my blog...go over and have a peek if you have a minute.....

its hard not to love a mascot who's whole head is a giant baseball....
Plus he's a nice dude in person.

That's great, Sal! Really nice piece. I love to see other people's takes on Mr. Met. I like your style a lot. Did you use Illustrator for this?

Hey Sal-

Sweet Mr. Met and cool home plate background. Though not a huge baseball fan, I've always dug the mascots. Growing up, my Pops brought me to a lot of White Sox games and I loved the antics of Ribby and Rhubarb (seeing Steve Lyons, Carlton Fisk, and Ozzy Guillen play was good, too). Hate the Phillies or not, the Fanatic is a brilliant mascot design. But as Pedro points out, having a baseball as a head is pretty damn cool. Good work, Sal. Best of luck, Mets.
