Making Cards - Part 1 : Mardi Gras (adult content warning)

I get this about once a year - when the blogging comes to a near complete dead stop. But I usually have a better reason for this than just being lazy. While my A.D.D. mentality is not in full pursuit of collecting cards, it slowly oozes out some art work for other card sets.
I've been toiling away at 3 different sketch card sets, 2 of which will be issued this spring.
ISLAND DREAMS will be releasing "Let The Good Times Roll" in April featuring the theme of MARDI GRAS in New Orleans.
I selected a few samples to show here.  The adult theme warning in the title of this blog is so that the all-so sensitive, censorship crazy prudes don't have a cause to bitch about the drawing of a pair of breasts. (if this bothers you - read no further)
A chance to slip in a sports card with the NFL's New Orleans Saints.

The chance to slip in some slippage. I love drawing women.

I never pass up a chance for Spooky costumes and skulls. 

Who's the leader of the band ? Flaunting feathers.

Voodoo dolls and dollies.

More smiles and beads.

This was one of the over sized 5 x 7 cards.
I've done a few sets for  ISLAND DREAMS including ones for charity. The packs are always interesting with many fine artist's work and surprise bonus cards that feature genuine old coins or artifacts. These "Let The Good Times Roll" packs will include actual free drink tickets among other things.
I hope you pardon my absents and posting. The MLS season has begun and the FIFA World Cup will be in less than 3 months. By then, you'll probably see more of my sketch cards on ebay and the official card web sites.
Next chance I get, I will feature a horror-monster set I am working on. As always, I am available for commissions to draw your requests.  You think it - I'll ink it.

You obviously have an affinity for women's breasts as they "stand out" in your drawings. ;)

Damn... I wish I had your talent. I'd love to be able to make custom sketches. Great stuff.

Thanks alot guys - I guess like card companies, I'll keep making them if people want them.

And I'll make whatever the people want.
