Here's Brucie!

I suppose it's about time I added the Coach of the Year to the mix...

A little finishing touch on Ovechkin65

I added the final 2 trophies that he won (yeehaa!) and the NHL logo in the bottom corner. I did NOT want to try drawing all 4 trophies - sheesh! Hopefully next year, I'll be able to draw one of him hoisting the Stanley Cup...

My son's artwork

Since I'm busy with other things, like a day job, my son decided to add a picture to the roll.

Karl Alzner

Future Norris Trophy winner for the Capitals. Sharp eyes will pick up on the fact that there's no number on his jersey. If anyone knows whether he's even got a number assigned, drop me an email or something.

Capitals Art ( But NOT mine!)

I repeat,this is from a REAL artist! I found it over at the Caps Attic ( www.caps-attic.blogspot.com ). I spent a couple of hours looking at all the stuff the blog
owner, Glenn, has at his site. Lots of Ron Weber snippets too!

It's a piece done by Thomas Needham, by the way. He has a bunch of good sports paintings. ( www.thomasneedham.com )

Alexander Ovechkin image on shirt or mug

Now that it's the offseason, I've touched up the Alex caricature (longer hair, fuzzy chin), and made it available on a shirt or a mug. I've searched and searched, but I don't see anyone offering those old-style caricatures anywhere of Ovechkin or any other NHL star, for that matter. Maybe if I contact Gary Bettman...

There's no actual Capitals logo explicitly, and no implied endorsement, so I doubt any government officials will be kicking my office door in anytime soon. :oD

So get one for (insert politically correct or incorrect holiday of choice here) and if anyone says "Hey, where the hell did you get THAT??" make sure you tell 'em that you got it from Paul Nichols.

Caps-Flyers Game 3

It's called "Goalie Interference"...

Ovechkin 65

Here's the finished copy; actually it won't be finished until they announce the Hart Trophy in June (?). I'll add something about that in the lower left corner when they finally do.

Sneak peak

Here's a sneak peak of my piece on Ovie. I couldn't fit it all on the scanner, so it's just a snapshot. I can't finish it until I get the final tally on his goals for the season. And I got a head start on his playoff beard.

Alexander Semin

This one took awhile. For some reason, sometimes there are guys you just can't "get" quite right. I don't know how "right" it is, but I was determined to get one done of him before the end of the season.

Rod Langway

Well, here's a first attempt at a non-caricature. Don't laugh too loudly...

I can't leave out the guy who's put the team together, now could I?

Maybe, just maybe a late push for the Calder Trophy?

Alexander the Great

Here's the first pic, done back in early '07 (before the uniform change, obviously).
