Illustrations, Print The Chicago Cubs has ranked at the top of my list of MLB teams ever since I was a kid. The Cubs were a powerhouse when I first became a fan, back in the 80's with Ryan Sandberg and Andre Dawson. They've been through ups and downs, now they are again on the rise! During their exciting run during the 2015 playoffs, the fan in me came out and I created illustrations for each series, against the Pirates and Cardinals. Unfortunately falling to the Mets in the NLDS. The stats reflect the post-season – reflecting the idea that everyone starts back at 0 once the playoffs start.
