Lithographs provide a more concrete way of recording moments than sketching portraits in sand or dictating memoirs to an empty jam jar. Hang preserved memories with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a Fenway Park 1912 Anniversary lithograph (a $90 value), plus shipping (a $5 value), from Lionword Illustrations (a $95 total value).
Using a painting of Fenway Park from sports artist Al Sorenson—the only artist with an official signing in the Baseball Hall of Fame—as a guide, Lionword artist Daniel Duffy celebrates the 100-year anniversary of one of the oldest ballparks in America. Each vibrant 18"x24" print is signed by the artist and placed proudly on heavy-stock premium lithography paper that displays the original entrance to the Red Sox historic stadium. This particular print epitomizes his style, with pen strokes dancing across a page, splashing ink onto the prominent features of each horse-mounted ticket taker.
Dan Duffy has two passions —art and sports —that he pursues both personally and professionally. He played rugby at the university level, and after graduating from Hussian School of Art in 2006, he crafted illustrations for companies such as ESPN and Golf Digest. Now, he works as associate art director for PGA Magazine, and also creates sports-themed and custom artwork for Lionword. Customers can order "word" illustrations that fuse text and design, or opt for a portrait of a favorite Philadelphia athlete crafted entirely from the imprints of their teams' logo stamps.
