CBLDF sketch cards

I’m on board for a few sketch cards for the CBLDF trading card set.  When I get approval to show a few of my cards off I will.  Until then, here is a little info about the set.

In comic books, the hero must battle an out-of-this-world villain in a world of fantasy. In our world, there are real-life villains as well. To this day, artistic expression and free speech are challenged in the comic book industry. The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) is a non-profit organization that comes to the aid of those artists who are threatened by censorship and other legal troubles. Supported by some of the most acclaimed creators and artists in the industry, the CBLDF has long been a champion of free speech.

This trading card set showcases some of the historic legal battles comic books have had to overcome from the Seduction of the Innocent era in the 1950s to the modern day. In addition to the base set, special hand drawn sketch cards and autograph cards by some of the top talent in the comic book world will be featured! Erik Larsen, Charlie Adlard, Rob Liefeld, Frank Quitely and Terry Moore are just a few artists who will be doing sketch cards. Plus, autographs can be found from such names as Geoff Johns, Neil Gaiman, Jeff Smith, Gail Simone and Robert Kirkman. To support the organization and its mission, all proceeds from the CBLDF Liberty trading cards go to the CBLDF.

a mention, and a couple of new pieces

The guys over at http://mutantaday.com have been kind enough to do a small write up on some of my art.  They are a couple of cool dudes that I met at the Dallas Comic Con.  I encourage you to check them out for yourselves and see what they are all about.

And a huge thank you for showing some of my art at http://mutantaday.com/

I knocked out a couple of new pieces.  These are vintage comic pieces attached to wood.  Add a touch of paint, a linocut POW! and BAM! pressed on, then another touch of paint.  Then a little polyurethane on top to protect everything involved.

These two feature Darkhawk

Captain America: The First Avenger

Captain America: The First Avenger, the movie. In theaters July 22, 2011.

Upper Deck is releasing trading card set based on the movie.  I am a participating sketch card artist on this set.  I’ve used stencils, spray paint, linocuts, ink, pencils, markers, etc…. on these cards.  Everything done by hand on each card.  Here is an example of a few cards I did.  I’m pretty sure there will be less than 30 total inserted.
