Carl Crawford

Carl Crawford of the Tampa Bay Rays:

The image depicts Crawford rounding the bases through the streets of Houston (his hometown). Symbolically, he is headed home. Part of the Houston skyline is visible in the background and the city features begin to blend into the Tropicana Field architecture. The domed stadium's catwalks are represented with the telephone/utility wires and the bridge delineates some features seen in the stands. Alluding to a common childhood activity, he is seen splashing through a puddle. Making these portraits fun for children is a goal of this project, so this part hopefully accomplishes that a little bit. It also creates activity and sparkle in the lower half of the image.
