Ok. I admit part of my absence has been due to plain lazyness. However, the other half I feel is my legitamate efforts to add to the trading card universe.
You see, although I do not do much artwork any more, I was asked to contribute to an upcoming set - THE GOLDEN AGE OF COMICS - due to be released this week by BREYGENT MARKETING.
To further delay my return to blogging, my sadistic ego took on two additional projects for CARTOON sketch cards and the Sci-fi / Horror poster card set - due out in June and August respectively. I have enjoyed this imensely - perhaps too much.
I was lucky enough to have all 4 of my 5x7 sketch cards selected to be exclusives for the 2010 SAN DIEGO COMIC CON. Here are one from the Comics and one from the Cartoon series that will be featured at the biggest Comic Con in America.
While my work may show a little rust, there are some really fine artists involved with these projects. And for those who want investment in their cards, I would submit that sketch cards are the future just as original comic book art was about 10 years ago. If you have been tracking the auction prices for original comic art - it is $kyrocketing.
I will be finishing up my contracted work with these soon and have been alloted a few "artist proof" cards which will allow me to sketch commissioned cards which will go straight to a few select fans rather than to the packs. If you are interested, please send me an email.
