Moonalice poster by John Mavroudis
According to Moonalice legend, today’s poster by John Mavroudis depicts another member of the Moonalice Baseball Hall of Fame, Yogi Moonalice, the catcher. The great Casey Stengel used to say every team has to have a great catcher; without one, you get a lot of passed balls. It’s really important for catchers to keep their head in the game, not in the clouds. What do you with catcher whose head IS a cloud? You put him on the Moonalice baseball team, which is where Yogi Moonalice has been ever since.
“When I think of Spring the first two things that come to mind are renewal (nature and creative) and baseball.
Using the baseball theme as a frame (I chose the baseball cards from the 1952 Bowman set, which, I think, are the most beautiful card set ever produced), I arranged the cards by commonalities… the ballet (hands above the head) pose, blue sky and clouds shots, catchers, portraits, batting positions, etc…. and then finally finished an image that been dancing around my head for a long time: the catcher is most distinctive figure on the field… and so… stands apart from the rest of the crowd. It’s not easy being different and he’s got the protection to prove it. This unique figure stands alone, head not in the clouds but actually part of the cloud… dreaming creative things while awaiting the next pitch.”

Moonalice poster by David Singer
According to Moonalice legend, tonight’s poster by David Singer depicts Marceau Moonalice, the loudest mime in the history our tribe. Marceau honed his craft on the streets of Eugene, where his impression of Mount Saint Helens erupting was a local favorite. Unfortunately, the volcano gig didn’t pay well, so Marceau took up alligator surfing. By the light of a full moon, Marceau took Later the Gator on the Willamette in search of the perfect wave. He’s still looking. Later the Gator gave up and went home to Florida.

Moonalice poster by Alexandra Fischer
According to Moonalice legend, tonight’s poster by Alexandra Fischer shows the night that Domino Moonalice discovered she was blind. “Oh my!” she said. “I can’t see anything!” Fortunately, Alex thoughtfully provided a poster that included Braille. Unfortunately, blind people are not born knowing Braille. That takes hard work over many, many years. On the plus side, Domino had a great set of lungs … and fully functional ears.

Moonalice poster by Chris Shaw
According to Moonalice legend, today’s poster by Chris Shaw depicts Spaghetti-O Moonalice, the patron saint of orange food. Spaghetti-O’s hair was actually quite short, but she used extensions … and the extensions were made of really long doobies. The quality of the herb in those extensions was so high that Spaghetti-O spent at least a day every week in the beauty parlor, getting her extensions replaced. Fortunately, she took care of that earlier today, so if you see her around, feel free to help yourself.
